He ever come and see you. Much later I a Worcester Centrum. We sold out three nights at the Centrum. I flew back to Boston see his mother who hadn't talked to in thirty or forty years. And He was a hard ass Irish. Think Eugene O'Neill okay. Okay so now. My I get tickets to this jazz benefit for zoot Sims, and we go to the place, and we were there early and and they go. Oh, my Gosh, there's Huey you. Yes, Sir Mr Lewis this. My Dad can't believe how well I'm treated and marches down to the two seats, smoke club anyway, but to house seats in the third row, perfect best seats in the house and sitting right. There's Phil Ellwood the the. The Music Critic and my dad knows everything about jazz I mean he plays Jazz, but he knows everything is a music college. He can name everybody and Jimmie Lunceford Span. He name everybody in chick. Webb's orchestra knows everything you know, and so he sees Andy Reed's fill. Would all the time and Philo would says Oh, my God Huey Lewis. How you doing a big Fan, says Ellwood and my oh, man sees ellwood. Recognizing his son and can't even believe it. I said this is my dad view. He's home again. Yeah so I. Sit in my Oh, man, down, and Elwood, next to Ellwood, and they just start talking about jazz and stuff, and all these guys Bobo. Bono's the me. I'm sitting there. When we're kind of waiting for things, I feel a tap on my shoulder like this and I turn around and it's get. He's got his horn on, and he's. He's he's. He's standing over me with his own and he goes. You're you? We Lewis Right I, said he as. My girlfriend wants to eat your shorts. Oh! I'm sorry, he says hey. Look and go. Oh, my God stands. He's eight hates. One is you're going to be playing some of your shit? He says like play that crap, too I said. Bump job. Sure, you can Yeah, whatever he's here and you. Re gets a card out. And he gave me a Carter said Stanzi have sachs will travel and handed me. And I put in my pocket, so my oh man's beside himself in on the ride home. My Oh, man says if you don't take him up on that offer I will never ever forgive you. He says he has cancer and he's not going to be around that long and you need you need. My Dad was a radiologist and knew all this oncology stuff that. And he knew about gets his condition and all this so. That's how. We spent months looking for a tune, they would work for Stanton and then Chris came up with that little riff, and I wrote small world just four. As as a vehicle now you did. You guys kept touring. You kept making new albums, but you didn't before this album. You didn't do a new album for twenty years right? I think two thousand was your last. Not Not an album of original material, right? We've done a couple of things since then, but the yeah souls Ville, we do rb. Stacks Really Memphis tribute now. Were you a big stacks fan? I was okay. Because what's great about that record. You do respect. Yourself and I think a couple of Solomon Burke Song. But most of them are songs. Most people don't know that's a You've got a couple of great Johnny Taylor Song. Free just the one I'm looking for right right good for you. That's see my the theory was because people have done original versions of old songs, like Mustang Sally or or or knocking on wood, or so man or something. And I saw was either completely original version of soul, man, or those of really recognizable song, or find songs that weren't so recognizable that people didn't know anything about and do faithful versions of those. I thought that would be more fun. Yeah, so tell me a little your new album seven songs, and that's because Iran is that's how many con- you. Know! That the reason, no You know some of it like like you're single. Her love is killing. That sounds very much like an eighties. Everybody says that I don't i. don't hear it. You what the comment I get more anything else is that it's just vintage. Huey, Lewis on news. It sounds like Huey. Lewis and the news right away. You know it's a Huey Lewis Record. All with all the songs I go really one. What is you lose the new sound like? We were all over the map I i. don't well I, was GonNa, say I think the single does it's got that kind of Crunchy Guitar, but some of the other ones like when young and one while we're young. And remind me why still love you got there more. To kind of back to your seventies. funk days a little more. It's got that kind of country thing was it to kind of feel like doesn't have to doesn't have to sound like power of love. We can do what we want. Your I, mean you know a the the truth is i. just follow the Song I mean. The song is the hardest part of the whole deal. You GotTa have a song needs to be about something. You have to have a perspective and and my ripe old age I mean. It's hard to find an original perspective. You're writing a rock and roll song, so it's really it's kind of like a Haiku I mean. You really are trying to reinvent the wheel here with a pop song and you don't want to cover pass stuff and I've already written a bunch of stuff. So what am I gonNA? Do with this rifle can't sing about cars and girls anymore. What am I GONNA do? About Carson Girls. I do yeah, pretty girls everywhere. I pretty well. That's Eugene, shirts second girl, okay! Fantastic it is great so what? What happens now? You've got this album out you dealing with the health issues we talked about what's what's the prognosis for that? Well, it's not the end of the world you know I mean. Did it ever seem like the end of the world? It did in the first for the first couple of months I was so depressed I. You know and then I. Don't Know Wise I. Guess Shame on me for for that I suppose. But I was I was just horribly depressed. Thing I was never gonNA sing again. Now. I. Don't Miss Doing Five shows a week. You know, but I miss doing show every now and again and I. Miss I. Miss the Camaraderie I miss. I miss the circus that was rock and roll touring the twenty five of us. You know. I was a fun thing. It's a great. It's a great way to. It's a great way to live it's. Kind of like a teenager you know. It's it's. It's a lot of fun. Okay well, I hope you get to live that way again. Thank you so much.

"Than a non musically necessary, but everything else how to run a rock band. What did he? What did he tell you about that stage stuff? How it wasn't it wasn't that we told me how he conducted himself. How how he ran his crew in his band, it was fascinating and how he treated the fans he was Philip was a may an amazing guy, and he's the one that kind of gave me. Me Confidence that I could sing more and do more my own thing a little bit, and then so while you're there I think it's at that time. Some of clover backs up. That was still in his first on. Mine is true his first record menstrual, and then you play? Is it was at that trip where you played for a Niccolo and Dave? Edmunds records that was that was a little later those that Yao. Clover. The rhythm section plays. Backed up Elvis for my aim is true and nick produced it, and then so we made two records, and and they didn't happen. We came really close, but didn't happen, so the band breaks up when John mcphee and Drummer Kevin Wells have written a song and they want to go their own solo route. They mcphee eventually joins the Dube's, so we split up and I go back to Marin County and I just start a little jam session they asked me to. Run A jam session every Monday night and we just did a Monday night. Live Fun just a jam where we had comedians, and and just goofy stuff and I had a house band that I selected which is four of them was news member press? You know gone soon to be news guys and I started singing all the songs and m see the deal. And then I sang the songs and the thing to be very popular. We got a free studio time, so we went in to the studio with our Monday Ni- band. And we kinda disco version of, Exodus. From Exodus from Mexico the disco we call, it is really funny, but I was mindful that I wasn't going to try to make anything happen. I was GONNA. Do things for the heck of it like the punks so when I got the free studio time I said you know we're gonNA cut exit disco. 'cause it was just fun, and so now at this point you've been in the music business for some time. Though did you for you? Was We just goofing off? Or did you think in your back in mind? No, this is going to be one day. I'm going to be big and one day. That I'm not thinking I'm thinking to myself. The lesson here is don't worry about record deals or records or anything just have fun, play music and do this thing. Do not worry about your stupid career anymore, so that's what we did. We cut. EXA DISCO I mean how stupid is using two days of studio time to cut a disco version of exodus ridiculous, so now I got this. Tape, and like days later Nick Lowe calls me and says we want you to come over and. I want you to play one song of mine and an Edmonds wants and we walked by wants to cut. Bad is bad. Then was wants to sing it I said great sure so he says well. Can we fly over yet so I fly over to London I land? Go Straight to the studio. Cut the Nikoloz Song Cut. Bad is bad, then we, the record company comes down their record company and listen to the tracks everything's fine. There's a there's a kind of a lull I. Say you guys want to hear some funny? His sure so I play exit disco for him. With a record company loves it think wow, that could be a hit I said. Well Great Yeah. Come see us. We'll make a single steel I said great tomorrow. Okay, sure they leave so i. go to Jake Jake. What do I do? He Says No promises get eleven, points and three thousand pounds, which in those days was really good. It was almost six grant, so get three thousand pounds. He's he says and they might want you to do. Some other work like saying on you know puts if they want to do anything, say fine, but you pay for the studio time and don't leave without the three thousand pounds I said okay, so the next day I went to the record label. Sure enough made a singles deal for exit disco. Come! Through I got a check for three. I go back to California I call my Monday night live compadres ago. Hey, boys! We got a little action you I. I I got a singles deal here so that the great, but they wanted me to sing on it a little more right to one, a little more vocals because I hadn't didn't do a lot of vocals. Mainly instrumental I said no problem. I'll sing on. So we go back to the studio and I go. Hey, I need to sing a little more on that I got so we need some studio time? Come to find out. They've erased part of the master CH- that that the multi-track so I scream bloody murder I said. What am I going? Do I just made it singles deal for this deal? They want me to sing they. Cut it said well no problem We'll give you as much time as you need I said I'm underneath. Need a week. They said no problem. You got it I. Said Okay. Wow, so then when I did is I took the master track. Put it onto two of the twenty of. Twenty four track multi. On a third track. Mixed it down to another to track. Done with. It took two hours three hours I lost a generation of tape and it sounded. You could tell actually wasn't very good, but I knew it didn't mean anything. And with the rest of the week I cut three other songs with my band. The original songs the goddess, our record contract and our and our manager. And to hell with it paid off.

Escaped Europe during the war. My mother was born in Poland. And in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty nine, she was born in Nineteen, twenty four and nineteen, thirty nine, when the. Nazis invaded. Warsaw. Word came down that the Nazis were coming and my grandparents, although they were Catholic thought. Well I think we'll be okay. They thought maybe we'd just kind of blow over, but then apparently it wasn't going to, so they sent the kids out with their furs, and all the you know the jewels. The gold coins sewed into the lining of the first. My Mom hitchhike basically got lifts from fans people, and and all the way to Portugal and then Brazil with her. She was fifteen and her. Brother was ten, and they moved to Brazil they had a relative there put him up in a youth hostel arranged for them to stay in a youth hostel. and My mother lived there for almost five years, at which time finally her parents. My grandparents got out of Poland because my grandmother had a thyroid condition that. Some sweetest surgeon was the only guy on the planet who knew about this, and the Germans were very interested in the procedure, so they allowed her a visa to leave to go to Sweden to have this procedure done, and they just kept going and went to America. They stated they moved to Through in Massachusetts, which was the textile capital of America because? My grandfather was d'yquem chemists. He had A. Textile Mill in Poland, and you knew all about it, and they were kind of a wealthy, very cultured family, and so now in America is struggling tough to get a job with all the all the Returning Gi's. Money so he and my mother and my grandmother committed suicide together. and. It was a huge blow to my mom. My Mom, who's a commercial artist and was was in New York City. Designing album covers and Walt Whitman's little primers all this doing commercial work and you know well dressed and neat and prim. That's when she. Flipped out, because America had been had been the voice of freedom and everything for her, because when she was traveling through Europe. Whenever there was jazz, she was safe. Because G is G is and Jasmine at SAFECO, so she she was a music lover musical ever to, so she married. My Dad was playing jazz in New York and they marry, and then she reunited with her parents, and their parents commit suicide, so she can draw. My uncle later explained to me. That's when she turned off to the idea of America is a great place and became a kind of A. Bohemian and my dad moved to California. My whole family moved to California nineteen fifty. Three or fifty four and then. She started hanging out with the beat Knicks in the early sixties, and my parents split up. They got divorced in sixty to sixty one. I guess.

My father was a Jazzar and when zoot Sims died there was a benefit at a little club in San Francisco and my old man said zoo died. And there's a benefit. It's going to be unbelievable Jimmy. John's trio gets and other people are coming said. It'd be great so unbeknownst to him. I got two tickets and I surprised him. I said Pop. So we're GONNA go to the zoot Sims benefit. Oh man that's great that's great. He had never seen me perform yet. My Dad always thought that what I did was kind of like. He called it. The funny hat routine is he was a Jazzar and every jazzman in one song they do a comic deal where they put funny hats over there mutes and stuff. He thought all of rock and roll was the funny at. He didn't reckon it anything more than that and he had never seen me perform and we were starting to happen. So I get these two tickets and we'd go down to. I guess it was. What's now Kimble's the jazz club and were there early? And Oh my gosh they say Huey Lewis. Great to have you here and my dad's going. Wow these people are paying attention to my son. That's amazing and then they walk us down to our seats which it's very small place. We're right in the middle on the isle third row. These two seats in gentlemen sitting right there already is Phil. Ellwood the jazz critic for the San Francisco. Chronicle whose of great renown jazz critic and my. Oh Man knows all the jazz people you can tell you everybody and Jimmie Lunceford Span. Everybody in chick. Webb's Band Ernie lockjaw Davis zoot Sims and Cudi Williams. And everybody you know. Billy strayhorn the arrangers all that stuff and he knows. Phil Elliott and Phil ellwood goes. Oh my gosh. It's Huey Lewis Man. Great to me my old man's going what he knows. Who Kid is so now. My Dad's sits next to fill ellwood and they are going on like a house afire about different bands and who played drums with WHO and he knew some of these cats and talk about. They're having a ball and I feel a tap on my shoulder and I turn around and it's gets and he's got his horn on and he goes eight YOU LOUIS. I said Yeah. He's my girlfriend. Wants to eat your shorts BUBBA. Well he says. Why don't you let me plan some your shit? This is you know I can play that shit too as well. Yeah I suppose you're GonNa and he gave me a little card that says have sachs will travel and On the ride home mile man says if you don't take him up on that I will never ever forgive you. The man has cancer. He's not going to be around. That long mailman was radiologists in new those circles and he says you know this is a once in a lifetime thing so we struggled to find a song that gets could play over and Chris came up with small world and so when we had small world we had the song and I sent it gets and he came up and played on it. I split the song up into which I shouldn't have done. I should've left it in one. The we edited it for a single. It was a five minute single and it broke a string of twenty top ten singles that we have never cracked the top twenty but it is the best piece of music. I believe that we've ever had on record. And it's represented on smaller small world part two but it was such a lesson such a music lesson watching.
11 Trivia Questions on Back to the Future
"What are we doing today? She goes. What do you think we're doing? We're going to be in the house just hanging out coming up with projects for the kids watching stuff on TV and walking from room to room looking around walking out of that room. Go into the next room she goes. We're we're doing that. It's the that's the whole thing so I hope you are finding ways to switch up your routine because I need to get out of. The House is Weird in California. Because it's very cloudy and kind of colder and It was nice for a couple of days. I did some hikes. That was cool. I felt like everything was normal to degree But when it gets kind of cold and dreary it's it's really hard to get motivated to do stuff I keep talking about this Trivia Book that I WanNa right and I should have the thing done by now I only have about. I think eleven or twelve stories out of about fifty stories that I wanNa tell in this book written down and I could easily if I just focused on it. Get the entire thing done which I wanted to do over like the next nine months. I could do it in one month so I really need to jump start myself and right the rest of this book if you're interested in what it's about it's going to be kind of a trivia memoir where I talk about hosting Trivia very interesting scenarios and then I tell a story and Then there's a little quiz based on stuff that happened in the story afterwards so for example one time. I met Harrison Ford Trivia Party. I tell that story and then I have a quiz on Harrison Ford related stuff and then some Harrison Ford inspired trivia team names in different things like that so it's kind of like a travel book. It'd be a bookie by it like an airport and be like. Oh this'll be cool for the plane ride. I could do some trivia. I read some stories from this guy. And hopefully it's a ton of fun and I tell some shark NATO stories in there Some different celebrity encounters. I'm trying to break up the book into different sections. So it's like celebrity encounters a family type stories like growing up family based Trivia Steph Different travelling to different cities so like Tennessee Chattanooga Related Trivia so. I tell a story about doing this show there and then go into Trivia about it etc etc. But I think it'll be cool. It'll be about ten sections of probably five stories on each section each and there should be at least five hundred. Trivia questions in there for you guys to play along with two and hopefully this is pretty cool little calling card for me to give people as an e book or to sign copies of a physical book and get out there and do a little. Bit Of Book Touring. So that'll be something for two thousand. Twenty one. Hopefully hopefully the world is put back together by that and I can make that happen but if you're interested in the progress of that I might launch a website pretty soon for all things related to the book. I have no idea what the title of this thing's going to be but I think it will be a fun little project so be on lookout for that and be on the lookout for eleven questions on back to the future which are going to start right.

"Aren't they going to say that when he goes. That's the one I said it wasn't one and it was Michael was very ooh treat man. I'm he's that's gotTa feel good. He didn't miss he didn't miss much. Yeah I mean with all those you worked with Bruce Springsteen and I saw you guys on stage other other Wonderful Guy Bruce springsteen a wonderful guy I always what were they eating. What is it Michael Jackson and Bruce springsteen eating cheese that's a good question grabbing egg mcmuffins? I can't came to pop cannot be eating an egg mcmuffin. These were the eighties eating going on people. Doing catch my my drift. The I think people have been on about their blow us is that what was going on dude in where was I was backstage with. This is actually a while ago but me and John Mullany were backstage like talking about supplements and I was like what happened. I I like I like how we are. Now we're talking about here where I'm using a vocal steamer before shows you guys were. It was a different time. It was different time but but we are the world was pretty coked up. Well I don't know I don't know not I know I'm I think this isn't a got. You show no evidence of that. Yeah Yeah and the fifth take the fifth of that deal but those were the days you know it was sort of time when people would just give it to you. I mean this you were Rockstar. Waste cocaine was right. What a wasted? What a terrible drug could have been so much better extinguished? What do you mean you want? A new drug is yeah. That's genesis of that song because of that had such a ask wrote that song really really so you did. This is not a Gotcha show. I want to talk about what you WanNa talk about. But I am interested especially because it sounds like you came out at the other side and that was what was it like. What was the first time someone gave you cocaine or even saw first time? I don't remember but it's definitely music music related right. That was how in the world I mean. That was it before he is this when you were was the band before you you've clover and in London we're was sulfate. What does those cheap deep hotdogs? Fresh speed speed sulfate. Yeah it was horrible stuff it burns your nose and just made you terrible right but but I guess I I can't remember the first dry cocaine but I was. I was never a great drug for me but that didn't mean I didn't do it every day. I'M GONNA keep it was. It was just what was what was going but it was a big mistake. But it didn't grab you different right right. chemistries are grabbed. I worked with already laying already would be the first to tell you that that that got in them and he wished he used to tell me. He wishes she could go back and tackle himself before he did it. The first time I see that happen with people with alcohol and even with. I'm not trying to be funny. I know people that the first Chris is my friend. Dwight slade. Who did this? He said the first time he had espresso. He felt his brain. Do something that like brains shouldn't do. That's what Craig Ferguson said about alcohol. Alcohol was like if there's something that when you drink it you you feel perfect. He's like nothing outside of you should make you feel absolutely perfect. And that's that's that's how he identified the addiction so leaving that to you. You're doing a very addictive drug. But it didn't get tooken you in right away. I don't know why it just it made me uncomfortable and I didn't enjoy it but but you know here's part of it was part of the deal and took me a long time to figure that out right. was that something before shows. I mean you were high. Never do it before the show. We're never I never Richard Lewis did coke cocaine until thirty seconds after I got but that's interesting because of the reasons drugs and alcohol problem and what I do. Is that what we do feels like. Okay I've never done cocaine right but I decided to somebody it feels like how a good stand up show feels. I understand why people get addicted to it. Yeah there's something you can start. That makes you feel that Aleisha. Ironically it's just like the textbook says you have fifteen min high followed by to our boring down. Yeah and it's just not it's not a very good drug and then the next day is their depression because you used all your joy chemicals is out I have no idea I mean what happens happens is then of course you know you who said it Best Thomas Jefferson Kaye. Who wrote hey little girl in the high school sweater I remember? Never would've man come clover and we we're flirting with him US producing some stuff on us and it was those are the cocaine days and he said he said he said it perfectly said cocaine makes a new man out of you. He says the only trouble is the new man. Wants to hit that you chase it the rest of the day the rest of the night and then you're dead because you can't ever feel good You know right right but did you. It's kind of like getting a tooth. Didn't work done. Pro Cain same thing. Yeah numbs your mouth when you do the same thing Kinda well but it's not re- revelatory at all. It's not at all right now. There's nothing to be learned learned from it and it's just it's it's just it's kind of a useless drug. I've I've talked about psychedelics. Before and been like the epiphanies you have on psychedelics. Likes what's great about. It is when you come back down are still valid like you'll have like a new appreciation for the fact that we're floating on a space rock in infinity and and then you come back and you'll be like no that's right that's right. Excuse my mother used to say. My mother was a was a Hippie. My mom was a psychedelic l.. Gal and one of the first grateful dead's POWs with the dead palms with Dan. Rifkin the manager and lived in between us and how she was she followed them around and she always used to say. LSD changed the world. And I used to argue with I said no one else did not change the world but it definitely we changed the music business. You can see. I'm sort of Maybe romanticized the sixes. I already mentioned how I love. Ramdas armed awesome. Yeah I do see a collective shift in the consciousness the Beatles and Ramdas would also tell you haight Ashbury when people just started having the psychedelic bathtub filled with LSD. And just party. That wasn't necessarily the best expression of it. It became a party thing but I did see some the interest in eastern eastern philosophy and the interest in consciousness. And the what is going on here did seem sparked by it. Wouldn't you say your mom was Kinda right. Yeah no question. Jerry Garcia Assia used to say and he was Jerry was was an amazing guy was super bright and and he was really the mouthpiece of that whole the San Francisco scene and when when it first happened and you know the New York Times came running out to what's going on here and Jerry is a one hundred waited and he said you need the lawyer you need the guy that can be like. He was burnt. He said it's not really about drugs. It's about rampant intellectualism. Yeah and that's really what it. What if anybody in complete open minded this? If you didn't matter what you were into. If there was somebody who was into something he would he you would give him the time of day and listen to them. That's right that's interesting. It was kind of NEAT Tim leary. LSD was like swallowing nine thousand Encyclopedia Tannock's because it does have its own intelligence to it and it sort of what I think is interesting about it. It doesn't tell you new things as much as it shows you that that by which you know anything like it manipulates consciousness itself and makes you aware of the mechanism with which you are seeing hearing or learning right. So you're learning about learning itself. You're learning like we go around and we're walking and we're wearing pants and we're doing podcasts. But LSD makes you go wrong. ooh And then it goes. What are you looking with right? That's what I think is revelatory if it makes you what what is it a WHO makes transparent your your thought process all the stuff you can. What is very transparent? That's right and what is the GINGHAM. You're like what I have a joke. I do on stage that it doesn't really work because usually people aren't at that place where they want to talk about this. I think but I say like when you sing a song in your head. How are you hearing that that? That is the big question I think you can have is. How Are you hearing? That's the question of consciousness itself sure and the punchline. I say sing happy happy birthday and I go. How Are you hearing that? And usually people don't laugh or even responding to go. Why do you have to be stoned for that to be interesting because if you are stone like the I had that thought on my porch which you just walked back? I don't smoke a lot of weed but I was smoking I was. I really almost got paranoid because I was like. How am I hearing the voice in my head? No but that is I think it's the most important question in all of space time is. How are we aware player and introspection? Right I mean that invites introspection absolutely. So what was the first time you did. LSD was is over. Scott Deals House. I remember and we looked at the in the band. I'm sorry no no. He's just a friend and we listen to the doors album. Oh my God I i. Didn't I had no idea the doors were talking directly to me dad but but early the doors wrote that record the doors of perception percents eleven uh-huh and then we hitchhiked to Sausalito for some kind of a concert and we just laughed ourselves. We just laugh laugh. Laugh Consob Lavin you get the joke of every everything very funny or maybe you get that. There isn't a joke. I don't know what's going on but I know that type of laughter. I just remember being completely completely open minded to every everything was everything was interesting. Yeah everything was interesting. Well that's what it is it to me. Whether it's meditation John or spirituality or sort of gives you a crash course in that but not to be too religious. I hope it doesn't make you uncomfortable. But when Jesus says don't Judge Eckhart totally says a better interpretation of that would be label so what you're doing when you turn reality into objects so you can think about them. Is You strip reality of its shimmer and when you're on LSD you stop labeling. That's true and you just experience everything is one thing that's right. So a Huey Lewis concert or the dust bunnies in the corner of your bedroom. Everything is the phenomenon that it actually is and it earns the fascination that your brain in its in its genius. Your brain is constantly prioritizing. What's important what's not important? It kills the editor right. There's no more editor and that freedom And that's why the the mystics that I enjoy are all the ones that go like whatever's happening it's the Buddhist idea of non resistance. Sure I delayed flight is is filled with as much majesty as getting where you're going and that's what they seem to understand and that's what psychedelics can give you a little glimpse into that liberation liberation. Mind You I. I think you learn that from one one or two psychedelic experiences. I don't think you have to take LSD one hundred times. I completely agree that's I said this a million times. But Alan Watt said after you get the message hang up the phone. Sure so you don't have to keep going back. My wife Valerie had a bad experience with some. Mm some chemicals like this and I was like. You're fine you don't have to keep going right after you've been in the room you don't have to keep going you learn that you'd literally you have the neural. Pathway going I rem I can remember you can remember. You just did what it was like listening to the doors and not judging the world and when you have that Afr- point of reference you can go back right and you and you know that that even today that all that all that still going on. That's right it's just being edited and you can choose is it if you want you want. Just move the editor over here. That's right up. Choose that and that's what I try to remember when I'm in a bad mood I'm tired and life doesn't seem magical and I can't get in touch I wonder and I don't feel any mystery. I go who cares. Get over yourself my ability to pick up the song. I'm the radio. It's the song doesn't mean the song isn't and in the air. I my antenna fucked up today because I'm grouchy. It's still there. There was something I wrote my book. I said the reality of the divine or the mystery is not contingent on on my mood yet so many of us we have a bad day and you go like well. Everything sucks because my experience says it sucks so we need to get over ourselves and even in those moments where you don't feel it know that it's still there. Isn't that fun. No get really good so good I feel like Jeff. Bridges could play in a movie. Is that Jeb Bridge completed royal anybody. He's a yeah but you got that bridges voice. That's funny because you know I'm a big Fan of Jeff. Bridges there's actually is What was it wild heart? Yeah crazy crazy heart. Which is Steve Bruton story right? Do you know Steve Bruton's no well Steve. Bruton was guitar player. Really good friend of my keyboard player and he wrote.

That's a real statement that people say well you gotta get them on the next Girl and a boy my son withstand get in my head. Stan Getz is the most laid back cat ever because all playing things like that. Like staying gets on Huey Lewis Record. You be like Rockin you get to the Sax Solo and it'd be like that's his. That's how we get. We had to find out We find a song and Chris Hayes. Guitar Tarp Player wrote this little jam. I thought this would be great and I so we. We did a demo of it and I talked at first all around the world. There are people people like you and me For the Poor's beggar in the street to richest King and Queen while the Book De Things Waylon and I was just kind of talking against it. which is Kinda cool? I thought all right and then and then and that's all we had and we and I sent it to gets and he he he said great. I'll do it so we've made an appointment to do it. And then and meanwhile we put tower power on it we all the power horns on it and I sang it. Ice Sang it instead of spoke it so he comes up to do it at the session comes MHM studio. DDS drive he comes out he puts on gets his worn out he goes out and he starts pointing us. Oh my God. It's in C.. Sharp I mean it's it's it's out you'll see sharp for for for tenor right. You know yeah. Is it concert okay. So be concert really. Was it in concert. It's a whole step is ten. I was trying to play grown-up. I wonder if we were real. Whatever that's the things funny or something like that and you can't suck the and I said wow I didn't think of that what I guess we could train via so it or something he says really? What does that mean? I'd say. Well we could slow the deep down. You play okay. Let's try it so we tried to do that. And it sounded like kazue exist. Don't worry about I'll just do it. He says what I said. You sure. He's yeah it's just a challenge for super when you say that all the time now gets goes out and and he starts thing and Oh my God clearly he had shedded it and he was he was just fooling he. He had to shut it out because he played it. And and and what was amazing she starts his solo and he's playing along real nice and all and here comes tower. Power bump bump on it now but don't let it you know and I and the big one. They goes up now and so in his headphones. Eagle is. He's he's playing along but DVD dubiton. Bob and then then you're about I mean it was such a musical lesson watching him react to when stuff the busy he went low he got busy with the was. It was unbelievable watching him. Play one of the. I'm great experiences of my life. I mean those are the most polar opposite things I've ever heard of tower power and Stan Getz it's still and it was a seven minute track and I got the idea of splitting it up up. Make it at first and last cut which was a complete mistake. I should've kept because his solo on their which is part two is the best musical moment on that record by a long shot I mean wow it's just really cool. He just such a great player. I I just thought about something. We gotTA rapid upson. We have one more question. What do you mean? So you're the bus. No because I'm about to good move. Forgot Your Robert Altman film Sir. Are you going to move. No no I was like you know hacked down. You know what I'm saying like your before that Bullshit Louis Her Did you ever fuck with chromatic harp. Because you're such a diet tonic harp player. You're known for that like that. Always carrying like eight different harps and different keys and shit sorry all right sorry with chromatic arm. Yeah but I what I do is play secret. Matic in D minor third position. Why would you laughing at? That was because no one would do that. That's why it's interesting guy sometimes like it's okay. So here's what you know the average I'll explain this in front of Louis and I'll feel real fucked up about it but I'm trying. Yeah so so. A HARMONICA HAS BOBA holes in a specific key. And its diet. Tonic means scale. So it's like C or D or e or F so most so let's take for a bad example like John Popper of blues travelers carrying around eight hundred different harmonicas in different keys so they can play in different keys. A chromatic harmonica is like something that Steve underplays underplays which has a little button on sides can middle But you can always you can play all know their notes whereas the other ones are just eight notes although unless you're Howard Levi right unless you're wow that was cut unless you're Howard Levy a great great or toot toots and Leo. On the original awesome people go real deep anyway. Such a great music last so so so so huey is known as not a chromatic player but a guy who would would did you carry around a bunch of different unharvested. Yeah okay so so so He was the news tunes written a and e. and Sarin see minor. Like there's some weird shit so you'd have to adjust the harmonic. You're playing for the song you're playing so he would carry around. Tell me if I'm wrong. I'm GONNA tell he will lose his business while he's sitting right here that like he would play. He's had different harmonicas in different keys. He's and so if you have a chromatic are Monica the ideas that you only have one xactly now. You should talk but you have to be a much better player than I mean. You're put you know all you need is the chops to say what you need to say. And what is that. You want to say hats. Yeah and there's flog raw is what it really whatever I mean. You know. It's it's it's all creative. Yeah Dude Man man spirit. And I wouldn't mind.

Bob Gale asked to take a meeting with us at Ambler blended Amblin in La and we went there and took a meeting and say look. We've just written this film called back to the future and our hero hero. Our League guy called MC fly and his favorite band would be Huey Lewis and the news so we thought how would you like to write a song for the film and I say wow. I'm flattered I don't know I don't know how what writing for film means never written for Film. Don't have any idea I said. Besides I'm not too keen on writing the song back to the future and they said Oh we don't care what you call it. We just want one of your songs so I said okay. I'll send you the next thing we right. Wow which was our love. It was literally the next thing you wrote after that phone call. That was the next thing we wrote. Wow really got it then. Back in time was written specifics. They wanted another song for the credits. And I by then I'd seen the film I hadn't seen it. And so I wrote that as you know specifically for that all right.

"Uh-huh where the fact that you guys have rotation on soul train for one year do we. We really would. So here's the deal. So Cornelius had had taste. Here's confirmed was in eighty four okay so black people's relationship with MTV's is rather strange. Because of course you know rick regimes hat legitimate beefs like well. I've sold out stadiums. I'M NOT ON TV. So the thing is to watch Michael Jackson videos especially that most cable networks weren't in the inner city they were more of a suburbia thing so we would have to plan weekend so I would spend like a weekend. Am I tell you bill. I I just remembered like going to my aunt's house in in Kentucky and she had TV. Yeah and that's the thing most of my weekends in nineteen eighty three eighty four. y'All can I guess midnight night on on cheering. Alkyl Judy's house so I would go to the suburbs of our mountain back when I was a suburb and I would sit in front of MTV e seventeen hours now yes to wait for those five rotations of beat it to come on and Billie Jean however all that other stuff into you guys are coming to remember the pet Benneteau one where the Nazis or doing the House for children children. Yes literally like all this. Thomas Dolby. The Nina Ninety nine left everything that defines MTV be. I'm I'm absorbing Jess I can wait for the Michael Jackson videos but I'm after nine nine rotations of this now I'm fans of them too and just moments thanked the whole audience went. That's why I knew all this shit. You're waiting for every hour and a half. So so the thing is is that in eighty four I think Don Cornelius saw the paradigm shift so the first sign of it. It was during the during the TEENA. Marie episode of eighty four showed.

And and that's another a long story but then I hit shake all the way from London all the way through France down through Spain took the little very wrong he hitchhike. You didn't have a limousine But there was a stowaway story. I heard that you stowed away on a plane to on okay within your. That's an interesting story. Actually as as I do that I wanNA know. I didn't really still thought I could stowaway. But this this was a member. One thousand nine hundred sixty seven or sixty eight probably sixty seven or sixty eight right in there and I hit checked across the country I and to go to Europe and then I stay. Stay with my buddies at at Harvard. who were at school there for a minute? Didn't see that coming back down to New York. We're here and I went to a guy and while it was hitching across country a guy picked me up and told me I said I'm trying to get to Europe. He says well you know But I I don't have that much money I had. I think I started off with three hundred dollars. And the plane tickets. Were like fifteen days. Okay and so I said I don't have that much money. I can't spend all on a ticket and he send away. He showed me. He told me about this idea where you get. The you know the jacket. The ticket goes in in the old days used used to take a special silver pen and write on the jacket and they looked at the jacket. They never this before so he says he or he says you can still way on this freight airline to I. I checked back down to them. I'd Awhile Airport. which is now Kennedy Airport and out answers there and and I Freight place and I couldn't get across the couldn't figure that out so I went back to the terminal the TWA place. And I just laid there for you know just kind of stayed there for till midnight and I befriended this Agent of TWA ticket agent. Cellino Buddy the opposite show tells me there's a way you can kind of sneak in always tell you what if you wait till I get off. I'll show you collective. You've jaw-dropping this now. So he he explained to me that you get the Jack Jack a jacket out of the envelopes side of the drawer and he had a special silver pen. He says you need this consume and then he says you're right on the outside London L.. HR flight seven go to and then he says and then go into the gate real early and just kind of make yourself invisible and it'll fill up and then when you get on the airplane all they're going to do is look. Could you jacket. And then go take the seat middle seat over the wing and they said and then but not years right the middle seat over the wing and take take the another terrible seat in case they say. Oh you're not someone else takes your season on my seats up there and then you but none of these flights were full in these days so the middle seat over the wing was like the last one to go so he says I said wow what happens if I get caught. He says the only way you're going to get caught at the end of the deal. She's going to count all all the people on the airplane and it's not GonNa jibe with all the people. They had the the podium. He's going to be one off and she's going to. They're not going to hold the flight up. They're just going to go. So if you WANNA be really safe he says you can buy a ticket and then just put it in the jacket but don't give them the ticket and when you keep keep the ticket and if if it works you get over when you get to London you refund the ticket and if they find out you give him the ticket and that's what I did so game hands and refund tickets Shit Huey Lewis. I'm just curious. When does the this finesse game? Like what year do you think stop. Computers Damn stopped everything everything you can't even ask fucked up not.
