Brushing elbows with the Rock and Roll Aristocracy - Elvis Costello

Went to see City Winery, to check the place for our (my new band's) next gig. It was the night for book promotion and music. "The Levon Helm Midnight Ramble" Photographs by Paul Laraia. The Band played well. Levon didn't show up, but we had a privilege of seeing and listening to Elvis Costello. This is his photo of two of us. We both liked it. Pleasant artistic and authentic.

This was a great night November 9th 2009. 20 years ago the Berlin Wall came down. What a night THAT was!

The same night I met my old friend from The Band days Stuart Hruska and new found friends Chris and Marlene Knell. To my surprise Chris's family comes from Croatia, actually just few miles from where I grew up. Small world? I would say, world is always the same, only the paths are narrow. See the street signs. Holand Tunnel and Lower Manhattan.
