Forgive me, but I have to indulge for a moment. Last night my 16-year-old son, Jonny, blew them all away at King of the Blues. The best part was that he was the youngest contestant and before he played, the MC was teasing him about having to bring his mommy (me) along to sign off on his paperwork. Afterwards, it was clear that Jonny was in a different league. He totally rocked. Watch the video here. Also, check out his band's myspace page.
On a literary note, the fabulous Greg Leitich Smith, author of Ninjas, Piranhas and Galileo (Little, Brown, 2003) and Tofu and T. Rex. (Little, Brown, 2005) wrote a very nice review on Brothers. Check it out here. Thank you, Greg!
