P.S.:
the Trayvon Martin case for example is not the last trouble in a long line – there are too many guns in the USA! Much more are killed by youth gangs than by terrorists. So much money vs. Islamism – why not more money to support the situation of the youth and the jobless! Why fight in Afghanistan and why support development in Iraq – and Detroit dies!

  5. I agree with someone above who said your music is somehow so appropriate. There’s a lot of pain there….

    • “There’s a lot of pain there…” – after playing Bossa Nova or classical guitar, Gypsy swing or Beatles songs – I always returned to the old blues masters, because that’s my state of mind, the roots of my feelings – I can’t feel authentic in another way …
