Itching to get out and play live, I'll be feeding my need to perform by posting some home videos. In this first one, I play a medley of songs written by one of the all time great songwriters...I should just call him a 'composer' to give proper credit. Joe Jackson definitely had a couple hits during the 'new wave' era of the early '80s, but he has a massive and brilliant catalogue that remains undiscovered by the mainstream. I think he prefers it that way so he can keep reinventing and refining his artistic approach. If there are any musicians out there looking for an incredibly fun read, his memoir, "A Cure for Gravity" paints such a vivid picture of what it is like to struggle as a working musician before hitting it big, and why the need for music is the reason to live through the struggle.
