Tim Krekel has died

The great guitar player, singer/songwriter, Tim Krekel, has died.  He played an innovative style of lead guitar on the 12-string.  I opened for him in Betty Dylan, and ever since I saw him play I always had dreams of being successful enough to have Tim Krekel play guitar in my band.

Listen to Tim’s now ironically-titled song Casualties, but they are all good.

Also nice to see him on video – great voice!

Wyclef Jean Video #140conf

I edited a series from #140conf for Macala Wright.  These segments feature Wyclef Jean:

1)  This clip will make you love Wyclef.  “There’s a happy side to these kids,” he says in reference to poor children.  He knows that you have to build on something positive.

2)  “You make it (Twitter) your own world,” says Wyclef Jean, explaining that the value is in the quality of the relationships.  There are ways to find all kinds of resources within your own community.  Wyclef became known as “The Twitter Police,” because the community is self-policing.

3)  Here Wyclef Jean explains that the record label doesn’t have enough time to promote all the singles, but the fans do.  “A record compay ain’t gonna have no time…so that the fans are doing this…so through Twitter we have built our own street team online called the Warriors.”
