Ernie Remembers the Love Valley Rock Festival

After Woodstock, there was The Love Valley Rock Festival. Some say it was inspired by a wave from the West Coast; the best of these beautiful times of brotherly love and sharing, where you could thumb a ride anytime. But that time had peaked just a few years before in San Francisco. "The Vibe" was now reaching into the Deep South, and rock was here to stay!

"It was during our extended tour, The South East Tour," Ernie said. "We were playing colleges tours and some of the bigger clubs in the Carolinas and Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and also Forida, and they love the family structure there in the South, the way they reinforce each other... "we're  together" attitude... the people invited me into their houses: 'Feast, Brother. Would you like to eat something?' and really friendly, you know. Just trusting. I've never seen anything like it."...

A Busy Autumn

I've been kept really busy this month with all of the pix I've received from Ernie via Cathy at CMS Productions. I can't even tell you how many there are. You'll just have to go see for yourself! My favorite is this one of Ernie on stage wearing some awesomely colorful bib overalls. Looks like the summer's gigs are spilling over into autumn, so don't miss an opportunity to go see Ernie live. You'll find his performance schedule in the sidebar. And do me a favor--take pictures!
