Jimmy has been videotaping every concert this season.

Jimmy and his son are going to Lollapolooza to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Jimmy tries to write a page a day on a new book of short stories he’s working on.

Jimmy said he struggled for airplay and got his most airplay ever from LTC.

The new album is titled “Nothing But a Breeze” and features Jake Shimabukuro, Mark Knopfler, Bill Payne and Sonny Landreth, slated to be out in October. The new album was recorded in Key West, Mussle Shoals & London.

Jimmy’s playing Vegas October 21st and 27th, and he and the band will probably do some small shows to “warm up.”

Jimmy told a story of a show with the Dead where they played from 5- 11 am, Jerry Jeff Walker played for an hour, and he followed with 2 hours after that. “Breakfast consisted of acid and a peach daquiri.”
