What An Incredible Summer!

What an incredible summer we had taking the Under The Sun Tour around this beautiful country of ours, and a big thank you to everyone for their love and support! I'm already hard at work putting together next year's line-up, and lets just say minds will be blown if I pull off a potential headliner I have in mind. A big thank you to all this year's bands Smashmouth, Gin Blossoms, Vertical Horizon, and Fastball, who gave 100% every night and now are friends for life...

Exciting news on the TV front, that gig I hinted at in my last post is now a reality, and an announcement will be made in the next few days. I have already started pre-production with the team, who are some of the most creative people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. The only hint I will give you is that music will be involved, so let your minds wander!

On the bummer front my NY Giants lost to the HATED Cowboys, but not without a valiant effort that just fell short. I'll tell you this...we will win the NFC East!

Re: What An Incredible Summer!

Hey Mark!

Good to hear you've had a good summer, mines was pretty kick ass as well. I am a Giants fan too, my favorite is watching them beat the Patriots, especially in the Super Bowl! But unfortunately this is not why I am emailing you.

I recently went on a cruise and fell in love with a girl I met. She is the sweetest, most awesome, generous girl I have ever met and she has a heart of gold. She is a speech therapist for autistic children. The reason why I am writing you is that I have made a video montage of our cruise using your song "Fly" Featuring Super Cat as the background music for the montage and it's awesome. Where the problem is, is that she can't see it because I cannot post the video on Facebook due to Copyright infringements, even though I have legally bought the track on itunes and the album back in the 90's. I could upload to video without your song but I rather not because the video matches up perfectly with your song and we were listening to your songs and a bunch of other big 90's hits all cruise long, so "Fly" brings a lot of sentimental value to the montage!

I've seen you on 'Don't forget the lyrics' and you seem like you are a really down to earth cool dude, and I was hoping you could help me get permission from the copyright owner to upload the video on Facebook (maybe 20 people will see my video). I believe the video itself will impress her, but if I get your help it will really really impress her!

Thanks for your time, man! Hope all is well!
