Did a show with “Mother’s Boys” last night in Los Olivos, CA at the
local Grange hall. Just into the second set, news crews with cameras showed up at the door. It was ABC and NBC, up from LA, covering Michael Jackson’s death (he’d had his Neverland Ranch 5 miles up the road). Seeing as it was 9:30 in the PM, the entire rest of our town of 400 people was shut down & everybody except our hard core fans were already in bed. We were doing the Carter song “Little Moses”. They listened for 2 minutes and you could read their faces: “Boys, we done walked into the wrong place!” They split, and our chance for our fifteen minutes of fame vanished just like that.
