            Jimmy’s Note:

            Playing for a living. Not many people get to do that. It started for me back in 1966 when Johnny Youngblood taught me three chords on the guitar. I did it to meet girls. It worked. Fortunately that wasn’t the only thing I accomplished. There were more chords to learn and more importantly a lot of lessons in living like discovering how valuable a sense of humour is to us modern creatures. I found myself in the role of troubadour/court jester.

            In mid-evil times the court jesters were given the unenviable task of amusing the king and queen especially if bad tidings were the fare of the day. My idea of a tough job would be waiting to go on in front of the court and have the king’s aide tell you that he had just informed the king that he had lost a war and then say “you’d better be funny.”

            Things haven’t really changed that much and as the cards have fallen I see myself playing the jester to the light speed court of current events, but there is a real difference between those days of old and the summer of 1990.

            Today at my shows, it is the people in the audience who wear the costumes, not the performers. I play to a variety of bird people, shark people and lizard people. Parents bring their children. Children bring their parents. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever see the day I would be considered family entertainment.
