Hey now -

I just returned from a fantastic night of music -- my new favorite band is Lingo. When thinking about Bill, I can't but pause and reflect that it was his angelic presence that brought Lingo to our attention.

They are without doubt, one of the most incredible bands I've ever seen -- and I don't say that lightly.

I am so amazed by this band that I am planning to hold my 60th birthday party at Sportstime Bar and Grille in Duluth, Georgia, two days before my birth date, on July 24, two weeks from tonight. The reason, of course, is because Lingo will be playing three sets at the venue that night, and I plan to be there for all three.

Anyone who wants to help celebrate Hophead's sixth decade on Earth is hereby invited to watch the wonderful music of Lingo with me. I hope all the Atlanta peeps can stop by, and who knows who else may show up.

But first, do yourself a favor and buy this wonderful album: http://www.hittinthenote.com/cart/p-902-lingo-through-the-scattered-trees.a spx -- or at least listen to the song clips -- then you'll be prepared for the mind-blowing experience of this music.

I won't go on and on but I hope you'll trust me when I say that this band that Bill's angel led us to is the Real Deal. Besides, I'd really like to see y'all come out to help celebrate my turning from old to ancient!

You're invited!
Hophead's Sixtieth Birthday Party
[No presents required]
Sportstime Bar and Grille, Duluth, GA

July 24, 2009 -- 9:00 PM
Featuring Lingo for three sets!

This is just a few miles from home, so I should be able to make it. Thanks Ron. Shall I assume the festivities will continue w/ the Mule Sat the 25th?

Awwwwww man! Hoppy, I'd be there, but I am headed up to IN that day for my 30th high school class reunion. And dang it! I haven't seen Lingo since that first time at Mellow Mushroom after Bill's memorial service. NUTS!! I can never get the timing right for these things! I know you'll have a very hoppy birthday regardless. I'll be there in spirit. Happy 60th to you in advance!

Hey Hop!

Hey Ron,
Happy early birthday! You and I must have similar taste in music, because I heard Lingo do one set at the Hoopee Jam and they absolutely knocked me out. Have a great birthday...can't think of a better way to celebrate 60 years young.

Hey now Bill-

One set by Lingo just ain't enough -- I'm a greedy bastard and I want to hear THREE sets!

Thanks, Nancy! Can you make it? I really want to turn as many folks as I can onto this band that Bill's angel led us to.

They are absolutely worth our attention and support -- I have not been so excited by a band in a very long time ...

Who else?

I just saw the guys tonight at Zuffy's and they once again confirmed my opinion -- all it takes is one live song and you'll be a devoted fan of Lingo! Barb was there and the two of us were rocking out!

1. Hophead
2. JNB
3. Brock
4. musichick3
5. MissTerry

I saw the new "sign up" and came to enter my name. It's already there! Barry's coming too, if he can make it. I'll know this week if a few of my friends who live out in Gwinnett will be coming. I'll sign them up, if so.

Lingo just gets better and better. They were incredible Friday night! Can't wait to celebrate Ron's birthday with Lingo!
