My 2018 got off to a fabulous start with Jason & The Scorchers recent residency on the Sirius XM Radio Outlaw Country Cruise, which was a “deep” success.
I was a very busy pirate doing three full shows with The Scorchers, a radio interview with Mojo Nixon, guest spots with Chuck Mead, Rosie Flores, and The Bottlerockets, a special appearance on the Tom Petty Tribute Concert where I sang “I Need To Know”, and a trip to some Mayan ruins! My voice was worked so hard I couldn’t speak a word when it was finished!

A high point of The Scorchers shows was Marty from The Supersuckers singing and playing the guitar on Bible and a Gun. Everyone in the crowd joined in on that one. I also got to hang out with a lot of old friends like Steve Earle who I hadn’t spent any time with in years.
It was a wonderful week, full of maritime musical adventures. I was honored to receive a standing ovation at the Tom Petty Tribute Concert. That was a high point in my music life, although the whole week was magic.
