DeRo, how about doing an actual story on Tommy? If you've ever written about him, I missed it.

Why not do a full article on Tommy? If you've ever written one, I missed it.

If you do a story [not a bad idea at all!], mention that TK's guests on various recent albums and shows include, Mr John Wurster [Drums] of Superchunk and the New Pornographers, Mr John Moen [Drums] The Decemberists, Dave Phillips [Lead Gtr Frank Black and the Catholics, Tommy Stinson, Jack Logan], Mr Jeff Tweedy on vocals [some band from chicaga], Mr Jeff Murphy [The Shoes]on production & Gtrs, Mr Jay Bennett [Wilco, Solo, et al., on Keys and Gtrs], Mr Robert Pollard [recent duet album the "Keene Brothers" with TK, and TK is an irregular in Pollard's bands], Mr Walt Vincent [producer/writer of TK, Pete Yorn, James Blount, etc.], Mr John Richardson [Drums, TK, Gin Blossoms, Badfinger, Adam Schmitt], Mr Adam Schmitt [Producer/Singer/Songwriter], Mr Jesse Valenzuela [Gin Blossoms], and many, many more!

Dissedclaimer; I sometimes get to record & mix TK, and many of the above!
