THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NUMBER 67

ELM TREASON TIDBITS

– We received no submissions for our “WITHOUT A TRIBE” album cover contest (sadly). We’re working on some ideas now.

– The “UPTOWN Q” Facebook Group is now at 144 members! Slowly we grow…. slowly… Thank you to those who have joined!

– We’ve decided there will be 13 songs on “WITHOUT A TRIBE,” and much like we did with “THE VOICE OF TREASON,” we will offer bonus discs with exclusive material – BOTH on vinyl and CD! (Digital downloads, too). 

– We are now anticipating a tentative release date of November 15th for “WITHOUT A TRIBE.” Looking at all the manufacturing and production we have ahead of us – and scheduling things so we don’t burn ourselves out – this is a pretty firm estimate.

– We plan on making the release of this new album a grand event – similar to “THE VOICE OF TREASON” – with exclusive content, behind-the-scenes stuff, bonus tracks, etc… More details will follow in the coming months.

When I was 20, in 1980, I won a series Steve Martin impersonation contests. This led to little bit of work. I was booked at a prison as an opening act to BB King. I bombed big time but a lady named Dell Long, who booked King in prisons gave me Steve Martin’s manager (or agent, can’t remember) phone number. I called him and he asked me to impersonate Martin, which I did. Martin happened to be in the room with him. He got on the phone and said hey that’s pretty good. We talked for about thirty seconds I guess, and I can’t remember what either of us said because I was very surprised to say the least. He was very nice.

Bill Boys

LOL! In all these years, that never occurred to me. It WOULD have been a perfect retort. It would have made a much better story, for sure.

I met Exene and John Doe of the band X. John Doe was quiet. But Exene and I had a nice conversation. I told them about the first time I saw them and we talked about different cities in Texas. They were both very kind.

Nancy Norris

When i was very young I went with my Gramma to a Pro Wrestling event at our local Mid-High. I met and got autographs of Rowdy Roddy Piper and Ricky Martel (who was French and I actually spoke with him in french!).
Also been to a music festival in Texas and got all the autographs I could! One nationally known artist, mostly locals. But all amazing!!

Alice Sullivan

Shelley Stewart

Had some really cool experiences! Spent an evening dancing and partying with George WEndt at an L7 show; had an amazing talk with Murray McGlaughlin, well known Canadian roots musicianwont take the time to story telll; had a mud fight with 9 inch nails at Woodstock/94 cool thing about this is that we did not know it was thme until we all headed to show and they all of al sudden ended up on stage; had 2 cool run in in /93 while training with first guide dog in San Rafail, California. My trainer knew that I was a huge music fanatic, so while training in smalltown he told me to turn towards the road and wave, the guy stopped his moped and came over and we were chatting and my trainer casually says Shelley say to Carlos Santana, we talked about dogs and life for aboout 10 minutes. Then while learning about using dog while going around outside cafes my trainer tells me to follow his directions as we are going to break all the rules he tells me to stop and say good morning Eric so I did and added enjoy your day…yes it was Eric Clapton hut I did not know until we were out of the madhouse…fun with the blindLOL but cool for me Of course shinging moment… meeting John Cleese, making him laugh and smile and then having him sneak up on the blind chick and whisper in my ear “Do you know who this is”? give me a peck on the cheek and keep going…WOW!!!! My only regret is that I did not have the quick wit to ay, ” Eric Idle is that you? I have also had the pleasure, sometimes to interview Billy Idol, UB40, Chalk Circle and the Northern Pikes for the university newspaper! I also am friends and have dated some ‘musicians’ from Toronto, so depending on you music types and being Canadian they may not resonate but they are well know in their own right and followers!

Ellen Hakala

Wow you are having a life well lived Shelley Stewart… I say good on you, I am feeling a bit like the color of Kermit and I have not met anyone famous maybe there is time for me yet ..

Mark Caro

I met David Lee Roth, Ronnie James Dio and John Denver.

Mark Caro

John Denver.
Just months before his passing, we were in Carmel in Northern California, at a private cove at a friend of the family. As we were ascending up the steps, we noticed a couple of people talking photos of the scenic beauty.
So we stopped to say hello, and started chit chatting about the beautiful scenery, when I just realized we were conversing with John Denver!
So , as we were heading back to the house, I was asking my wife, “ hey wasn’t that……?” As she kept repeating, in a whisper, “ Shut up, shut up, keep walking.” 😆😆

Katie

Mark Farner. He and his wife played a set with an area cover band at a local fund raiser about 5 or so years ago, then he mingled with the smallish crowd a little. My one brush with the famous.
