You gave me a idea. I went on the net and looked the Ted Nugent "Fred Bear song." I was jammin' along, all alone here, since my wife was out doing a church thing. When it hit me, I wonder if Uncle Lou has ever done this song on video. I didn't find it in your video's. Any thoughts?    Preston

Thanks for the info. I wish you luck and safety in your hunt. I'll be in touch as soon as I have any news.  Preston

Sorry to here you won't be at Beard's on the 24th. I attended the Uke session on last Monday at Red Sky Stage and was asked if I was the guy who played at "open mic" at Beard's. I guess all guys with beards and CBG's look alike. Is there any other place, you plan to play in the near future, say before "Opening Day?" Do you use bow or rifle or both?  Preston

I've wondered for a long time, just how to contact you.  I went as far as to drive around the Bliss area, but to no avail.  I meet a friend of yours at work. He told me, he's heard you at church. I just wanted to thank you for perking my interest (cbg's).  It's been quite a ride so far.
