Charlie, thanks for the interview with Jerry (can't believe that pic of the water in front of the Art House - wow).

Hey, I'm wondering if you know of a keyboard player in need of some new gear? Just this week I decided to sell my own MIDI rig from back in the day, and reading your blog here made me wonder if there might be a connection to be made. The prices are pretty reasonable, I think, but I'd be glad to try to help folks out if they thought they could use the gear.

Here's a link to my blog with gear details: http://dunhams.typepad.com/seconddrafts/2010/06/for-sale-old-school-but-good-as-new-midi-rig.html

Maybe it will help. Would love to do something from here if I can.

Best to you and Andi,

Craig

So sad to hear about Jerry's equipment.

Squint has been one of my favorites for years. I love the guitars on that album!

Well, the evolution and maturation of a musician's sound is a natural progression. I suppose a natural flood is one way to force it. Not wished for, but it'll be interesting to hear what changes.

Charlie, Darrell Smith here. I grew up listening to you and Jerry work your magic on tons of records. I've been inspired by the writing, the musicality and the production aesthetics of the projects you've curated and produced over the years.

While I've known Jerry for something like 15 years now, I've just come back from spending the weekend with him at Summer NAMM with Line 6. He truly is a work of art.

I affirm that Jerry is both a phenomenal player, and a tone aficionado. Jerry is also a delightful person to be around, and has a unique "social grease" gifting that can make any situation workable. Even when faced with the loss of such an amazing array of covetable gear.

As as session guy, you've got to have your chops together, your tones together and be a great hang. That's Jerry Mac to a T.

Here's to many more years of great music from the two of you!

Cheers,
D

The Memory Man is like a warm blanket on a rainy fall day. I can't leave home without it. Mr. McPherson's rig is a beautiful thing to behold. It kind of makes my head hurt to think about. Oi.
