St. Louis again?
seeker831 says: John, I'd like to know if your wife sings with
you on any of the songs on your new "In Spite of Ourselves"
Reeda says: So John, what has happened to that first Sivertone
guitar that started you on your musical fame? Do you ever drag it out
and play it for "Old Times Sake"?
Reeda says: how did your high school years influence your song
Reeda says: Is Fiona the lady in the picture of you and a woman
and a convertable in the Missing Years liner notes?
Reeda says: John, you are described as a folk artist...but that
is your first album, you have covered a little bit of everything from
Rockabilly (Pink Cadillac) to Rock (Lost Dogs) to Country (In Spite) -
how would you classify yourself? We tend to think you are a hard folkabilly
on a roll artist...grin
jp1fan says: Question: Why did you not record the 'Saddle in the
Rain' verse that you sang on Farm Aid
Reeda says: What's it like being a new daddy?
Ric says: Hey John. You made a comment once when you were playing
The Tampa Theatre (I think on your German Afternoons tour). You said somebody
famous once told you not to ramble on about your songs before you played
them. That it is a form of apologizing for them. (Of course, we feel differently).
I remember thinking at the time it sounded like something Bob Dylan would
say. Am I correct in thinking that??.
chuck says: John, i have been a huge fan sine the first time i
heard far from me. with the success of in spite of ourselves any chance
of a solo album of you doing old country songs
Ric says: Hey John. One song I always hear people holler out requests
for during your shows is "One Red Rose", but you never sing
it. Any chance of hearing that beauty someday?
chuck says: does it bother you in some way that you best songs
seem to come be written after some trauma in you private life specifically
jp1fan says: Do you have a home in Mexico? Or what is the story
behind that song?
Ric says: Hi John. "In Spite Of Ourselves" is such a
great song, not to mention the rest of the great cover duets. If you don't
get a Grammy, there's something wrong with this big old goofy world. Can
we expect an album of original material any time in the near future?
JackJ says: John, i'm a big Phil Parlapiano fan; never thought
he could be replaced. But each time I see Jason Wilbur, he's better than
before! Will you team up again w/ Parlapiano anytime soon?
Reeda says: Talk about Lake Marie if you have a minute....lots of questions on what it is about...
Ric says: Hi John. I like you, my wife likes you, my kids like
you, my Mom likes, you, my inlaws like you, my dog even likes you. How
do you manage to come across to such a diverse group of musical tastes,
generations, and species?
jp1fan says: Do you think you will do the Everly Homecoming again??
Wowie88 says: Hello! Do you have a schedule of where you will
be playing at next? I would really like to have one.
