The Old Dawgz had a great rehearsal yesterday. Most fun I’ve had with a band in many years. We’re good friends. We laugh all the way through rehearsal, and give each other the business.
Left to right… Big Joe, Mike the Mutt, Shouting Thomas and Puppy John. I’m standing right under the ceiling light, which is why I look like the whitest SOB who ever lived.
We’ve been rehearsing in Mike the Mutt’s house. His poor wife puts up with the noise, the dirt and the awful jokes. Thanks! We used to rehearse in the smallest room in the house. Now, we’ve moved out and taken over the living room.
Mike the Mutt adds a little vampire repellent in this pic. God knows, we need it. You can tell that Big Joe has posed for plenty of PR pics in his long career, right? Puppy John, there is no line that goes “take your bobbies out” in “Long Train Running!”
When Mike the Mutt turns his cap around, things are getting serious. Man, I wish you weren’t leaving us for Florida, Mike! It's enough to make an Old Dawg cry!
Puppy John and I sing a lot of harmonies. Our voices really compliment one another. He’s belting out our signature Doobie Brothers’ medley. We’ve got to do an all Doobies set!
We’ll have a real picture shoot pretty soon. Gotta get it done before Mike the Mutt heads to God’s Waiting Room.
