Hopefully having a violinist means they'll be playing Amen!

It is great to see a violinist included this time. I thought he had been listening to his fans when he featured a violin several times on Old Ideas and I expect he will include most of the tracks on the tour. So many of his other tours had sublime versions of great songs, i.e. Closing Time, Who By Fire, The Window, it will be be such a treat to have the violin included again. I just hope he comes to England so I can get to see him.

beautiful!
I didn´t kill myself when things went wrong
I didn´t turn to drugs or teaching
I tried to sleep, but when I couldn´t sleep
I learned to write.
I learned to write what might be read
on nights like this by one like me.
