Gab and I are leavin’ for London 2nite…the gal needs a lil’ vacation, so she is joining me on this trip to London/Spain and Prague. It’s been fun being @ home…the weather has been marvellous darlings! So, its curry in London…and rain…and, well you get the picture…we will be all wrapped up in our winter clothes!
I have been enjoying some free time…been hangin’ with the Smiths…been watchin’ my dogs play in the garden and I have been writin’ for my book…AND…some new songs for the next GH album…it will be released in the Spring of 2010.
F U N K is a benchmark achievement…I have raised the bar…I will be writing all next year…compiling all my new songs. Have 4 or 5 that are cookin’ @ the moment…it’ll be bootilicious and Soul saturated.
May all your dreams come true…may all of your lives be touched by kindness, generosity, and love…I am always with you.
Glenn’s most recent live and electric “plugged in” performance on one of the premiere USA based, nationally syndicated radio broadcasts, Rockline, is now available to listen to again, but for only a short time via their webstream.
You’ll enjoy a thorough Q&A with the host, Bob Coburn, in addition to audience phone-in questions and of course, a full electric set, comprising songs from F U N K, Soul Mover and some classic Trapeze and Deep Purple.
So hurry and tune-in before it disappears!
Home again…the calmness of the Palos Verdes Hillside…the amazin’ sunrise/sunsets…to wake up in my own bed.
I want to thank all of you that attended my concerts this year. You have all been FUNKed…I love seein’ all the energy from you…I feel you. It has been a new beginning…I wanted to push the boat out further into more soulful ground…I challenged myself, I needed to be honest, and I have never been happier.
My sobriety and a conscious contact with my higher power, are paramount to me…they come first…if I have these 2 things in check, then I’m off 2 the races.
Feels like I just won the Grand National….!!
Tune into Rockline on the Radio, or on the web (Wednesday 19th 8:30pm PST/11:30pm EST)…have a slice of F U N K on me.
You know it makes sense…..
