Just after I posted out last week's newsletter I recieved a charming note from Corky Laing:
Hi Jon,

Good morning from a small fishing village on the shores of Long Island. I do hope that all is well with "J and Da Cat". 
And he went on to tell me about his new show that he is touring worldwide:
"Corky Laing, whose skills on the skins are matched only by his wit and candor, will relate how he climbed up and fell down with some of the rock world's most prominent luminaries...but it's not all talk. Corky will show us exactly how and why he is one of the most acclaimed drummers in the music business.  And he took it all in from THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE!

When you hear that song that starts with a cow bell sound. You know it's the beginning of, “Mississippi Queen”. Yes, that’s it. And that’s Corky Laing...

He wrote,recorded, and performed it for the last 40 years. People still can't get enough of the Queen.

 Mountain drummer Corky Laing scripted and staged a one-man show chronicling some of the more humorous and dramatic highlights from his legendary career, reflecting  about the myriad of performers he met along the way to rock stardom: Levon Helm, Eric Clapton, Keith Moon, Alice Cooper, Salvador Dali, Jimi Hendrix, Jack Bruce, John and Yoko, Mick Jagger, and more...(He loves droppin' names)

You can find out more about the show HERE.

Corky went on to write:
Of course it is presently current and I hope to keep it that way. While finishing the opera I have been honing this stand up-sit down performance and I will be coming to your town in the near future.


All good things,

I'm glad that there are artists like Corky in the world.
