this monday at the hideout

I welcome one of America's great (if not justly acclaimed) songwriters, John Sieger. I've been good friends with John, and an avid admirer and very occasional co-writer, since the early 1990s. Then he was pretty fresh off his big-league success with his Milwaukee band, Semitwang, and making waves in Nashville with his songs being cut by BoDeans, Dwight Yoakam, Flaco Jimenez, and others. Today, he's an eminence grise in his Wisconsin hometown, and writing, truly, better than ever. On Monday, Robbie Gjersoe will join John and me, and the three of us'll cut loose on a dozen or so of John's titles, and a few of mine.
