Ok yeah yeah yeah, you’ve heard about the movie 🙂 here’s the NEW news though: the director has decided to give the film a storyline- so rather than simply being a concert film, it’s about my accident and resulting head injury, the years of hard work and struggle to regain my ability to finish sentences and remember words let alone write (!), and then of course being able to write songs again- resulting in the album we will be recording at the end of the year.
So we’ll be filming more shows, interviews, and other footage over the next few months, including concert footage in Europe. The director also wants to insert images of me/us right after the accident, since we continued to perform as per doc’s orders. If anyone has any photos or video of Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers right after my accident, please send it our way! We’ll make sure you get credit in the movie 🙂
Well, that’s all the news we have for today. I’m off to rehearse two of the new songs we’ll be playing tonight for the first time ever for folks. And pretty soon, we’ll be packing to head across the pond on tour! Life doesn’t suck 🙂
Make sure you check our website to see where and when we’ll be playing next. We look forward to seeing your bright and shiny smiling faces sometime soon!
