Deke’s new song, “The Year That Got Away,” was conceived as a ROCK ANTHEM: a chorus everyone could sing together, at the top of their lungs, while holding a cigarette lighter in the air. Plus cowbell! Featuring Jim Laspesa of in Brian Wilson’s band, Dave Davies, the Muffs and Green Jelly on drums. Many thanks to Sirius XM for the airplay!

Articles and thoughts from the mind of Deke
Here’s a silly story for the guitar geeks.
Big Jerry Douthett was one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met…just a force of nature. Sometimes, when you were hanging out with him, you’d swear that you were hanging out with the reincarnation of John Candy.
Most of country music’s great artists are glorified one-trick ponies, making album after album of same-sounding material. The recorded output of Merle Haggard proves that this was never the case for him.
