Still can’t believe it this morning. Only good news was that my @klipschaudio Cornwall handmade speakers came knocking on my door at ЯR today. I’m gonna christen these bad boys by taking the day off, and listen to my favorite artist of all time.... I Love you, Tom. -BW

My heart can’t take this one. You were my everything, musically. What is happening in this fucked up, sad, crazy place we live in... big tears of heartache.. I was just screaming my lungs out to your songs at your show last Friday night at the Hollywood Bowl. I will never listen to Wildflowers, ever, without crying. This world of rock n roll wouldn’t be the same without your contributions and existence.. I love you, Tom.. with all of my ♥️ - Butch

Been on a big Bob Dylan kick again lately.

To which a scoundrel clings.
Steal a little and they throw you in jail,
Steal a lot and they make you king...."

You all may remember Suzanne "Suzanimal" Santo @soozanto form the Stay Gold Tour last year that I did. Yes? Well.. her record is out today and it's really really good. I'm not just saying that because I produced it. I would listen to it, even if I didn't. Go to her page and show some love. Congrats on the album, Suze!

The festivities are IN THE DAYTIME from 3-8pm (Saturday Afternoon hangs in the trees of Topanga, what more do you want??), and there will be live intimate stripped down performances by the aforementioned PLUS a cool side stage, where we will be having musical folks (hey maybe that's you) submit your videos for a chance to play on the side stage (details for this will be announced soon)!

Cool guitar alert. 1969 Yamaha FG300. You can pick these up for pretty cheap and if they're set up right, they're a secret weapon in the studio. Good enough for Elliott Smith.. good enough for me! @yamahaentertainmentgroup @yamahamusicusa @yamahaguitardevelopment @yamahaguitars_official

The very same year I was born (just a few months before I popped out into the world), a black man with a Fender Stratocaster guitar played our National Anthem to a shocked and amazed audience at the Woodstock Festival in upstate New York, cementing not only his place in rock n roll history, but also breaking down any walls of race, politics, or musical preference. I would be about 6 or 7 yrs old when I remember finally hearing and seeing that performance of the National Anthem re-ran on our little television box, and it did nothing but feed my growing obsession for all things rock n roll and guitar at my young age. Thank you, Jimi, for making America even GREATER that day, and for showing Americans that art is a Universal unspoken language and knows no boundaries.. and most importantly, providing us with the most KICK ASS version of the National Anthem ever displayed (Whitney Houston, yours was pretty dope too). Click the link here or in my profile to see the full Jimi version and also a version with me and many others paying tribute. #AllVersionsMatter #fender #happy4th https://www.fender.com/articles/play/star-spangled-banner

This girl @soozanto Suzanne Santo has a new record coming out, that I produced, called "Ruby Red". She shot a hot video for a song called "Ghost In My Bed" (backing vocals by little ol' me!) and the link is here and in my profile. Our friends at KCRW posted it. Enjoy this jam!! -Butch

Listened to the vinyl test pressing of the forthcoming @soozanto (Suzanne Santo) album entitled "Ruby Red" last night. Holy Shit. This record is so damn dripping with sex and sweat I don't know wha to think. It's made to played on vinyl, I can tell you that. This is going to blow people's hearts out of their chest. Proud of you, gal. Footnote: this is clearly not the artwork.

Had a blast at the Ryman Auditorium for Dylan Fest. Thanks for letting me do an uptempo version of "All Along the Watchtower" folks. Y'all know by now that I don't do "subtle". Much love to my brother of guitarmageddon, @sadlervaden for the dual lead meltdown. #musicisouronlyhope

WE HAVE A WINNER! Mike and Tisha Darnell are the winners of this Goodsell amplifier! Very excited to give it to them! Someone from @theautumnleavesproject will be in touch on how to receive it. Thank you to all who donated your $20 for raffle tickets. It is all going to a great cause and will help out many unfortunate people with pancreatic cancer. My heart is warm and full today as I see this baby off to their new family. It has served me well on the last few records I've been recording, so I'm happy to see it go to someone else who will love it as much as I did when I fostered it for a few weeks :-)
