Garnet Rogers - Tales from the Road
He's been on the road as a professional musician for most of his life. First as the lynchpin of his brother Stan's band, then as a soloist racking up untold miles in one or another Volvo station wagon, and now behind the wheel of a mini-van filled with guitars he continues to crisscross the U.S. and his native Canada.
In addition to millions of miles, he's collected nearly as many stories, and now Garnet Rogers is, as time permits, writing down these tales of the road with the idea of sharing them with us in book. He pays us a visit Live at Noon this Friday and, hopefully, in addition to a few songs, I hope I can get him to read us a bit from this work in progress.
