Ohio Tattoo Museum in Bidwell, Ohio... Zach in the glass

Today, Zach and I drove over to Bidwell… near Gallipolis to meet Rich Thomas at his Ohio Tattoo Museum for a Sunday get together. There was all kinds of really cool flash and of course, beaucoup tattooed folks.

Yep... we're supporters

Yep... we're supporters

I was to hang out with Rich and his folks and play a little music as an afternoon interlude.

It has been noted by the great Bob Roberts… L.A. tattooist extraordinaire that ‘Blank skin is like money in the bank!’ Now I know that tattoos are not for everyone and that’s OK… those that are ‘in the family’ know what I’m talking about.

Not everyone who showed up this afternoon were tattooed… my son is a blank canvas… so is my buddy Myron, and they may remain that way. If we were all the same, what a boring world it would be!

I got my first tattoo from Lyle in his old shop on Seventh St. in San Francisco over the Greyhound Station. A demi-monde, the way it was meant to be! Chadwick was the first Bull Terrier I ever met. I loved that dog!

Then around 1500 it was time for me to pick a few tunes. I picked up my Jorma Kaukonen Martin M-30 and had a real good time for almost an hour!

Another Grand Fourth Of July!

July 5th, 2015 Jorma 2 comments

Even after all these years, the Fourth Of July is still exciting… still special! First of all, as a kid you cannot help but notice that this grandest of occasions… occurs in the warm throws of Summer Vacation. Summer… hanging with your buds… swimming… staying up late… really digging the long days… driving, if you’re old enough to drive… all that stuff and more. When I was a kid, I wasn’t burdened by overt thoughts of patriotism, or criticism of patriotism. Life was simple in an odd way. I was a second generation American with an odd name in a time when odd names singled you out for bullying and the like. I accepted that for the way it was and even as a skinny kid (what happened to that skinny kid?) I learned to be tough and take care of myself. Anyway, when it came to America, the Stars And Stripes and of course, the Fourth Of July… that’s just who we were. My Dad and his two brothers fought in WWII as most parents of kids my age did… Our identity was simple in those days.

Back to the present… The Fourth Of July still means so much to me. Last night Vanessa, Izze, Zach and I jumped into my pickup truck (what’s more American than that?) and drove down to the Ohio River, to Middleport for the annual fireworks display on the river.

Vanessa sets up to take some pictures of me and the kids

Now I know all around the U.S.of A. in the large urban areas, there are mind boggling fireworks displays… The Big Dogs have lots of money to throw around and the fireworks displays reflect that. Here in a small town, everyone competes for the coolest display… and Middleport has one of the best! Down on the river we could be relatively close to the launching barges and the sound of the big mortars echoed back and forth across the river to the West Virginia side. What a sound!

Zach, Dad & Izze

Yeah, we got down to the river a just before launch time and parked in a pharmacy parking lot with a bunch of cars, motorcycles and trucks… but it just couldn’t be better… Families, kids… some pets… vehicles of all sorts… Really good stuff! Small town America shows its colors proudly. Simple, and for a moment… pure.

The display lasted for thirty five great minutes…

NIce... very nice!

NIce... very nice!

As the last echoes faded of the Ohio River…Nessa and kids and I drove back to Pomeroy by the Mason Bridge past the Veteran’s Outreach Center and on the back roads to Hillside Farm where Maverick the Dog and Zammy the Cat were waiting for us.

Good times with the family…

Happy Birthday America! Happy Birthday!

July 5th, Ohio Tattoo Museum, Bidwell, Ohio!!!!!! Be There!

Here ye, hear ye. Be there or be square!

Here ye, hear ye. Be there or be square!

July 5th I’ll be down in Bidwell, Ohio to do some pickin’ on the guitar and talkin’ ’bout tattoos. Bidwell is right down river by Gallipolis. It’s in the old Gallipolis Harley Davidson building. We’re talking about the Ohio Tattoo Museum here. Rich has an unbelievable collection of flash that goes back several hundred years… and lots of other cool stuff too! I’ll also be playing some music. What’s not to like?

I was in Hawaii recently an got a chance to have breakfast with my old pal Ed Hardy who did my back piece. Hey, I know, life goes on and I hate to keep talking about ‘The Old Days,’ but I’m going to talk about the old days. I realize that tattooing has become mainstream in a way and that as in most art forms… the modern inkers are doing things that were unthinkable when I got my first tattoo in Lyle Tuttle’s shop over the Greyhound Station on Seventh St. in San Francisco back in the 60’s. Tattooing inhabited a demi monde back then… and the work really meant something lurking in the shadows of society.

Just sayin’

Couple of survivors here… Ed and I. Here’s to us and those like us… damn few left!

Good times. I’m going for a walk with Maverick the Dog.

Another Man Done Gone

June 29th, 2015 Jorma 22 comments

Yesterday just as Jack and I were getting ready to go onstage at the Crossroads here in Honolulu, I got an email from one of my old buddies… Charlie. Charlie was in Barcelona and he wrote to tell me that my old University Of Santa Clara room mate, Peter Byrne Manchester had just passed away yesterday morning. Peter was my room mate and friend, back when I was in Santa Clara… trying to keep my grades up while playing out as much as possible, Peter was a taper before the tapers knew what taping was. We’re talking 1962 and ‘63 here. He had a machine that was hot rodded to record at 15 ips and he also had some fancy condenser mike. Many of the tapes that are floating around today from that period were made by him.

After college, he was in grad school and I was in Jefferson Airplane… another kind of grad school. He and his wife at the time Susan and I and my ex Margareta (may she rest in peace) were pals in those halcyon years. Time went on as time does and we lost track of each other. He wound up teaching philosophy at SUNY Stonybrook… and I… well I just continued to follow my path. He came to visit me in Ohio five or six years ago and stayed at the Fur Peace Ranch. It was great to see him. His health was failing, and his age was circling him like a morning mist. We broke bread, shared old times… caught up on the not so old times and promised each other we would get together again.

We never did…

Life is a funny old dog and replacing hope with regret is a poor choice…

There are those moments and they just never fade
The look in his eyes and the way the light played
God moved in that moment and the angels all cried
And they gave you a memory that you have till you die
And the lessons you learn and you don’t forget
What makes you grow old is replacing hope with regret

Patty Loveless… Too Many Memories

Yeah… death comes in its own time… unbidden and patient. The sadness of course is all for those of us left behind. What more could I have done? At this point it really doesn’t matter. The answer will not change… this book is closed. I guess it’s just another example of life on the backside of the mountain.

Peter was one of us… we were friends when our earth was new.

We were young together…

I’m going to start this little entry with the dinner Jack Casady and I just had in Hilo. We were looking for a place to eat… not that there are a shortage of great restaurants here on the Big Island. We found this:

A chance look up and there we were.

One Man’s Opinion

June 23rd, 2015 Jorma 70 comments

One Man’s Opinion
Tuesday, June 23, 2015

Yeah buddy… lots of commentary action since I’ve been here I Hawaii. Interesting… very interesting. When I first stared my ‘blog,’ the term ‘blog’ didn’t even exist yet. Wow… what a forward thinker I am! Anyway, in the beginning not only did I not yet have the technical capacity to allow comments, I didn’t’ want to allow them anyway. I figured, ‘Hey, it’s my space… get your own.’ Hard facts over the years have proven to me that the only constant in this life is change and I have re-evaluated my opinion on a lot of things, and this is one of them. I have a comment section and y’all can say almost anything you like. By the way, you’re welcome. Anyway, as the comments descended into politics and social commentary, I thought I’d add my two cents worth. Hey, it’s my blog. I can say anything I want… well… almost.

Yo… we got Bernie Sanders and the Pope not only in the same comment but the same sentence. You got my attention. My wife loves the Pope. She thinks he’s a Rock Star, whatever that means. On many levels he seems more enlightened than some of his predecessors. Cool, if that’s the way you roll. I can’t tolerate dogma and I have no need for anyone on this earth to intercede on my behalf If I want to have a dialogue with G_d. Then there’s the ‘rock star’ thing. I hate that nomenclature. There are no ‘Rockstars!’ I have found a more than comfortable place in this world as a musician, storyteller and sometimes commentator. I am not a ‘Rockstar,’ and neither is anyone else.

Let’s move on… Bernie Sanders is probably a really nice guy. I have family members who think he’s the second coming of sliced bread. We try to avoid talking politics. It makes dinner more enjoyable.
Bernie is a self avowed Socialist. Sorry pal. That lets him out when I go to vote. Who am I going to vote for when the time comes? That’s none of your business. My Mom and Dad didn’t discuss that and my family doesn’t either.

A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on
the support of Paul.
 George Bernard Shaw

Way to go George. I hear you brother.

Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep
voting on what to have for dinner.
–James Bovard, Civil Libertarian (1994)

Even though Bernie’s metaphor of the American Problem being couched in the abundant selection of hygiene products in Wal-Mart and the like may be closer to the truth than we would like, I’m sure there is more to it than that.

In general, the art of government consists of taking as much
money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to
the other.
–Voltaire (1764)

By golly, there sure is nothing new under the sun, is there.

Now I see that Andriy got all fired up by Jim’s comment. Congratulations to you both. Welcome to America Andriy… as you have noted… we get to have these discussions in this country.

I am a second generation American. My Mom’ s folks came over from what was then Russia in the late 1800’s. Hey, my grandmother was sent to a Czarist Gulag… she escaped… found her brother and most of her family trampled to death by the hooves of Cossack horses. It is said that she and some of her friends committed acts of violent civil disobedience and then left Russia for America… where she and my grandfather had long and extremely interesting lives. My Dad’s folks escaped the dearth of work in Finland and went to the copper mine country of the UP in Michigan. Now… you history buffs will know there were Red Finns, Pink Finns and White Finns. Lot of cool history here… My family was not Communist or Socialist. That’s just how it was… just another American Story.

No man’s life, liberty, or property is safe while the
legislature is in session.
 Mark Twain (1866)

Like I said… yeah buddy! Anyway… I’m not going to engage in a political dialogue with anyone. That’s like trying to teach a pig to dance. It’s frustrating for you and it pisses off the pig. I’m just spewing here. In my line of work I have many colleagues who have quite different opinions than I do and that’s more than OK. We get to do that here in America. Try that in Afghanistan or Syria. Have a nice day.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the
blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing
of misery.
 Winston Churchill

Wow… good thing I’m still sort of on East Coast time… I’m up early with nothing to do except blather on the internet. I’ve got a couple more quotes I like that I’m going to lay on you and them I’m going to do some exploring on this magnificent island… Hawaii.

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is
strong enough to take everything you have.
 Thomas Jefferson

Heads up folks. We’ve got another big election coming in 2016. It’s not even close yet and I’m already sick of political posturing. We need a hero or a heroine to rise up out of the forest. It ain’t Hillary Clinton, I can tell you that! As for politics in general… do I vote in all elections. You bet I do! As a student of American history, I find there is nothing… I said nothing, new under the sun. The bloviating, mendacity and mediocrity that surrounds the politics of all parties has been with us since time immemorial.

Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of
Congress. But then I repeat myself.
 Mark Twain

OK… enough windbaggery from the old guitar picker. Well, almost enough…

Like I sort of said, I’ve had my chance to re-evaluate my opinion on a lot of things… and I’m not done yet. A quick revisiting of the Rock star thing. I know when the Jefferson Airplane hit it big I become a legend in my own mind and happily assumed the mantle of the Rock Star… which is why I know what a pile of poop it is. Sure, I know… when we’re selling merch we invoke the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee stuff… and that’s OK from my point of view. We’re working here. On the street, it’s ‘How’re you doing and how is the family?’

We’re all just folks here.

Wait a minute… another couple of good quotes popped up.

Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from poor
people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.
 Douglas Case, Classmate of Bill Clinton at Georgetown University.

As you may have guessed, I’m really having a lot of fun with a really serious subject. I think that’s about it… It’s a beautiful day here on the big Island of Hawaii… I’m going to have some breakfast and hit the beach.

To my brothers and sister who read my stuff… enjoy this great day wherever you are.
