  Light of Day 2005
I was teaching juvenile delinquents in the toughest
school in the toughest neighborhood in Pittsburgh in
the spring of 1995 just before the release of
“American Babylon.” When people asked me what I did
there, I used to say I was keeping the kids company
until they went to jail. It happened to be the 50th
anniversary of VE Day, and although I failed to
motivate even the slightest glimmer of interest in my
students it sparked a curiosity in me to find out more
about my Mom and Dad’s history. I knew they met during
that era but really didn’t know the details. I wanted
to know their story so that one day I could pass it
along to my own kids.

Well, out of my conversations with them came” 1945.”
Every word is true to their
story and the big band arrangement at the end was a
great finishing touch courtesy of Rick Witkowski and
Jamie Peck. Bruce wrote the music for the chorus.
obviously it’s one of my most personal and favorite
songs. Lee Ann got the kids who were just little ones
at the time to sing at the end of “Innocence Is
Beautiful” and the “I love you Daddy” at the
end......... well that just about reduced me to tears.

So what I am getting at is “Coming Home “ is probably
my favorite JG and the Houserocker album.
“Fingerprints” is a close second. I also think that
the best Iron City album is "Blood on The Bricks”

We had our usual great time at LOD in New Jersey.
It’s always great to see all our musician friends from
the East. Jesse Malin said it best when he stated that
Parkinson’s Disease is the headliner. It really hits
home when one of your best friends suffer from it.

Hat’s off to Bob Benjamin for his tireless effort to
raise money and awareness to combat this terrible
disease. Most people don’t know that effort it takes
to put this together and the toll it takes on Bob. MVP
as usual is Bocci. The people who do all the
complaining are missing the point entirely. And
bitching about Bob or his motives are about as lowlife
and classless as it gets. It’s about a community
coming together out of love, respect, and a
willingness to step up and help someone.

"and although I failed tomotivate even the slightest glimmer of interest in my students"

I can sympathize, as I teach Special Ed. classes, and have found that math is the only class that I can get my students(not all of them) interested in.
I'll be teaching a social studies course in the spring, and plan on using a free form curriculum based on what I, and my class are interested in.
 
Hi there, I was surfing the internet and I found your blog. I like the way how this all works.
