This is from TIM "private" to me - some days ago!
Just had another thought!
- Do you remember Linda Ronstadt's interview about The Moon's a Harsh Mistress when she was talking about Jimmy breaking down in the middle of a live broadcast and he couldn't go singing the song.
She said then that the moon is a 'mother' figure and it may have had something to do with Jimmy's mother dying when he was young (Erik ad - around 18).
Well maybe the moon on Friday was a symbol of your mother looking over you and your friends.
I shall certainly never forget the experience!
Erik AD: My dear mother left me, she was 85 when I was with my other music family The NEWBURY`s.
Mickey Newbury, American music legend (1940-2002).
I was at The Mickey Newbury Gathering in Austin, Texas, June 2008.
And my mother died, when I was over there with family of M.N., know most af Mickey`s family and friends.
I hurried home, but to late.
At a birthday party there in Austin 2008, we held before the Gathering and my mother was dead, was there a lady, who escort "dear old" friend of mine Mister Paul Colby, who maybe still owns The Bitter End nightclub in NYC.
I say hello to Colby and mention Jimmy Webb, and suddenly the lady says, what she know Laura Webb, and she wanted to let Laura know, that I was around.
When I leave home, I didn`t MENTION anything to the J.W. Forum, that my mother was dead.
BUT two days before funeral service, a flower lady was around with a big flower centrepiece from Jimmy Webb.
World can be small.
Can ad, that I last year was outside Houston, Texas, to say privat hello to Mickey lovely mother Miss Mamie, who last December reach 90.
Have been with the NEWBURY`s the last 7 years.
BUT J.W.s NUMBER ONE FAN!
