Snail Whitestone Interview

I'm here today with Snail Whitestone, well known golden oldies cover musician. How are you doing Snail?

Pretty good thank you!

You're in town for a concert tonight over at the Pavilion.

Yes, supposed to be a sold out show.

That must make the group happy!

Yes, we got the payroll covered for a bit now.

Speaking of covered, you tend to cover a bunch of Neil Diamond's big hits: "Kentucky Woman", "Cracklin' Rosie" and "Red, Red, Wine". Did you realize that in each of those songs, he was writing about his liquor bottle?

He was? Are you sure?

I think so. Then when he went into rehab he wrote about his withdrawal process and learning to live without the bottle by writing I'm a Believer.

The JJ Learning Anthem
Rewritten by Steve Sherlock (with sincere apologies to Neil Diamond)

I thought learning happened only in kindergarten
Meant for someone else but not for me
Learning was out to get me
That's the way it seemed
Failure haunted all my dreams

Then I saw the blog
Now I'm a JJ Learner
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I'm JJ Learning
I'm a believer
I'll be learning for the rest of my life

I know learning is a sharing thing
Seems the more I give, the more I get
That's the purpose of learning
All you get is gain
When I needed sunshine, I got trained!

Then I saw the blog
Now I'm JJ Learning
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I'm JJ Learning
I'm a believer
I"ll be learning the rest of my life
