Misc David Wilcox stories
David Wilcox is my favorite folk singer of all time.
I've been following his music since probably around 1986 or so.
He really opens his *heart* to the audience with his songs.
There's just no other singer with his depth of emotion.
Here's my favorite quote, from an
interview on Musician.com
"I’ve always been hiding behind the songs—
I’ve always thought it was the songs up there,
and I'm just the movie projector that shines a light through them."
Here's a random adventures I've had on his music.
Most recent adventure:
Egeria lighting and monday art party
a speech I should have given
Write up coming soon!
I hope these stories make you feel like
you were there too...
The night he sang the "country" version of Eye of the Hurricane
I was there! And he confirmed it!
David Wicox concert, May 5th, 2002
A posting I made in SF about a concert coming up and why my friends
had to go.
"Don't Be A Stranger"
A poem I'd been meaning to write for a long time.
I didn't have time to really
write it, but here's some notes
It's not a poem!
It still sucks. :)
Letter to David
Here's the letter I wrote to accompany the poem draft.
I just wanted to put all those thoughts into words which I didn't get
down in the poem.
A bad sign. :)
I eventually got up the courage and did give it to him!
Here's the whole week all together.
I still need to do some more writing about the GAMH show,
esp. since it was the longest and most magical adventure of the three,
but here's a letter to my good friend Andrew's that I wrote about it.
Magical David Wilcox night
A posting I made of a short version of the magical night.
And I'm sure the stories will keep on happening........
What's the background picture?
The background picture [and the other one linked below]
were taken during the Davis show,
when I left the show and walked around outside.
I noticed David's open guitar case.
Open and empty, because he's playing it right now...
So lovely through that wooden dorway in the warm night air...
