Franz, I hope no "negative" connotation is taken, it was not intended.... when Utah was telling me about this, it was in the context of advice about how to build your "career" in the trade-- this was 2003 and I was fairly new to playing producing folk music. To me, it was not just ingenious but a clear indication that he wanted people to know that he cared about them, even if he'd just met them once before!

I'm going to the memorial/tribute concert Saturday and Sunday morning is the memorial for Utah at the Little League field in Nevada City, where he spent many an hour cheering on the kids. I hope anyone within a decent drive of Nevada City will try to make it. I expect it to be a life-affirming and life-changing two days. For those who can't be there, I hope that others who are there (I included) can give a sense of this in a report to you all.

Peace, George
