“Music is my savior, I was maimed by rock and roll, I was tamed by rock and roll, I got my name…From rock and roll” -tweedy

Most mornings require music in this house. Today, as  many days past, this man has called me to throw on a vinyl, open a file or relive my experience with him on you tube.

Long before meeting him he was one of two of  this girls favorite lyricists. Starting circa 1990-1993. His story is profound, however that is his to tell and believe me if you do have the chance to talk with him he will share.

In the late 2000’s I got the kooky idea of actually booking bands and running promotion solo (later with a friend from high school). DREAM BIG.

Mr. Enigk was the first show booked, funded, produced and promoted by my lonesome. It was selfish …wanting  to hear his music, and yes meet him.

By far he was the most gracious, respectful, kind, accommodating musician and human I’ve worked with.  He treated me as a friend..calming starstruck nerves..we even ventured to NASA before the show upon his request.

His music has changed lives and healed wounds. He, himself has saved lives with all the work and compassion he’s poured into humanitarianism.

A little insight into the former singer of Sunny Day Real Estate -which was the genesis of Nirvana-without whom the Foo-Fighters would have a less than drum player-to list a few-and of course with out him  Lewis Hollow would never live.

If you venture to watch the YT posted for “How it Feels”- That was the show I spoke of, my first, how I managed to get such lovely sound quality? Sometimes the universe smiles.

“Don’t tell me, God

The dreams I’ve had

To fill it up

but spill instead

Talk to remind

Days, weeks and hours
All in time will be,

later on we’ll try

All we gave to fly

Hollow peaks we’ve climbed

All these things I’ve been

How it feels to be something on”
~”HOW IT FEELS TO BE SOMETHING ON ” ~LYRICS: JEREMY ENIGK
