A few thoughts about my latest project, This Town. I watched Derek Chauvin kill George Floyd on the streets of my hometown, Minneapolis: the town where I spent my youth- Prince and Soul Asylum at First Avenue, Dr. Mambos Combo at Bunkers, every Wednesday night Hoopsnakes at the Five Corner Saloon. The music was the sound track of my town; it is how I remember my youth. But now Minneapolis, the home of Bob Dylan, Soul Asylum and Prince, was now the home of a murderous act of hate. Was Minneapolis always a hateful town? I am afraid of the answer. What can I do? What should I say? After much thought I wrote the song I Can't Breathe.
