It's a familiar cliche: Good things come to those who wait. Well, I've waited over 40 years to record this album.
Forty-four years ago...that's when I first met and started making music with two "kids" named Ron, Ron Sachs and Ron Baumgartner. They were 18 and 17 years old, respectively; I was a "mature and respectable" twenty-two, at the time. For five years, the two Rons and I played together in a country-rock band called "Heather". We even managed to record a few singles and an album, back then.
Then, we went our separate ways.
Flash forward, four decades:
Kevin and I are extremely fortunate. The Gypsies have worked with a bunch of talented musicians over the past several years.
Well, we've now "officially" welcomed into the fold two of those talented musicians with very familiar names, Ron Sachs and Ron Baumgartner, and I couldn't be happier.
With the addition of the two Rons, we truly are, as the title of our new album suggests, a "Band of Gypsies". Neither Kev nor I can imagine starting to work on a new song without bringing Ron and Ron into the mix...both figuratively and literally. That's a good thing. And, as I said earlier, good things come to those who wait.
So, welcome aboard, Ron and Ron. Like it or not, you're now an integral part of our little "Band of Gypsies". Yeah, life does turn full circle, sometimes.
