      Hey Charlie!
      Long time–too long! Glad everything is well with you and all the very best to the family. We have ONE gig booked right now–Stephen Talkhouse Friday May 7 at 8 pm–cmon down! Because of covid, you’ll have to email info@stephentalkhouse.com (Peter) and reserve seats, etc. They have 40-person limit inside but the outside bar will be open w a projection screen of the band.
      Hope you can make it–and very glad you dug the book. It was a ton of work–three years–but I knew Stevie and he was a great guy and I was very glad for the opportunity to write it.
      Hope to see you soon!
      Andy
