In 2016 I made this record. I sent the title track to my friend Shannon Wheeler, and asked him to draw a cover for it. He sent me a sketch of a dude surfing on a guitar. I was ready to use the sketch, but he insisted I send him a picture of my guitar. The result you see here! I love what he did. Thanks, Shannon!
“Peace and Love and Rock and Roll” started as an album title. I wasn’t planning on a title track. But the song came to me one night, and I recorded the guitars and vocals at home. Added my bass and Mikey Stevens’ drums and percussion at Michael Rosen’s studio.
I’ll follow this with similarly titled posts about the rest of the beautiful cats who worked on this record. And some posts about the songs. Shannon and I have been friends since high school. I was a fan of his comic, Too Much Coffee Man, before I even realized the author was my old friend! Life is full of surprises.
I ordered some more CDs, will have them soon, so have at it if you want a physical copy. The digital download version is available 24/7, and if you buy the CD, you get the download as well of course.
