I don't leave the house for many reasons but last night was my favorite bands farewell show…last night's UFO's farewell tour hit Cleveland and it was most excellent. opening up with Mother Mary and then going into a Paul Chapman years song with We Belong To The Night, one of my all-time favorite UFO songs.

Heart Print Now Available

I always like to do something new for Valentines Day. This year i wanted to create something that you could not only gift to someone else but also yourself. I compiled some of my favorite images involving hearts and put this together. The text reads ‘You don’t have to suffer to be an artist but you definitely have to feel’ which is a quote from my documentary ‘Forced Perspective’. 
Printed on acid free fine art paper. 18" x 24"

RIP Neil Peart

RIP Neil Peart

Neil Peart passed away today, apparently he had brain cancer for the past few years, that explains why he wanted to quit Rush, and who would blame him. Neil was quite possibly the greatest rock drummer to ever live, at least thats the way i see it. I was lucky enough to have seen him 7 times over he years, the first time was February 3rd, 1979 on the Hemispheres tour and last time on the Clock Work Angels tour, all shows i will never forget. Rest in peace Neil, you will not be forgotten.  Derek Hess
