I thought the only way to defend myself was with a little understanding, humor and song. Here is a little 1:35 minute song off of Underdog Victorious :                                                                                              ... Read More

For the heck, I sang this at Joe’s Pub a few months ago.   Listen here: Modern Drugs -live at Joe’s Pub 2012   My friends, they’ve been so worried Because I’ve been so blue They want... Read More
