'Rockegan' Illinois in the press
Since the club I played last weekend was so close to my ancestral home of Waukegan, Illinois, the local paper did a very nice write up on me and the show, and they even mentioned the my nickname for the hometown, "Rockegan," which means the name is now officially searchable in Lexis/Nexis, the press... it's officially "out there!"
Even cooler is that they picked up a picture of me from my website that I took myself--one of those self portraits in which you hold the camera at arms length, point the camera back at yourself and hope you got the touristy thing that's over your shoulder in frame. So now, not only did I get a nice mention in the paper that brought a few more folks out to the show, I am a published newspaper photographer.
Or at least a papparazzo.
Weird thing is, in the picture I'm actually in New Mexico on Route 66, near Tucumcari I think. Nowhere near Rockegan.
Those papparazzi follow me everywhere.
