   Not sure what’s going on, but I feel like I should be saying Happy Memorial Day already!! Or maybe Happy Halloween?? 2020 is already flying by, but let me try to slow it down just a bit!  So, let’s start with our Fifth Birthday!!!! Holy ___________ (noun)! What a ride! The fact that I’m not in prison says a lot, but it’s still early, so either hold your breath or knock on wood!

CHECK IT OUT!

   I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with Paul Thorn before his show at the Tybee Post Theater last week to get the scoop on the man behind the microphone, as well as being the writer of two of my favorite songs, “It’s a Great Day to Whup Somebody’s Ass” and “I Don’t Like Half the Folks I Love.” Combining a mixture of Americana, Southern Rock, Country Blues and Blues Rock, Paul Thorn is a perfect combination of foot twitching, head bobbing, bass ripping, throaty vocals, down home good vibes and just a great time with a beer in your hand! Here is the history.

   Born in Wisconsin, but raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, Paul’s daddy was a Pentecostal Minister and Paul started out singing in the choir. Growing up he got into boxing and was 14 years old when he got into his first ‘professional’ fight. At 25 years old and with a ranking of 29th middle weight world champ and a record of 14 - 4 under his belt literally, he decided to retire his boxing gloves after his fight with the famous fighter Roberto Duran. Wow!!! Good thing for us as Paul dipped right back into music.
