No Stone Will Tell from Rounders by The Bad Popes

About five or six months after my father passed away in 2010, I had a dream that I was riding a bicycle by the sea. My father was riding along with me. When we reached a certain place along the coastline, I decided, for some obscure reason, that I would rappell down a cliff overlooking the sea, my father would man the ropes. I don't remember what happened in the time that I was hanging over the cliffs of the sea, nor how I got back up on the top of the cliffs, but I do remember the strange feeling of looking around after I got back up on mainland, and my father wasn't there, how transformed the landscape was, how different my pulse was. I remember getting back on the bike and pedaling, pedaling . . .


I wrote this crazy song after this dream. I love and miss my father. This song is about his ghost that is with me now and always.

Here's me and Charles with Bill Cox playing an ELO cover at Smiley's in 2009. Those were good days my friends. Don't let anyone tell you differently. Good friends and good times for sure! I miss Bill! He was unique and talented.
