I wrote this song about my father and Dementia/Alzheimer’s over a year and a half ago. We just finished the song and video, kind of surreal because Dad is in a nursing home at the moment. Was rushed to the hospital a week ago and then sent to nursing… This song has been through a lot of changes with different musicians helping ….this final version was produced by Ken Horanoff (our bass player in Sunset Dadeze) I sent the lyrics to Art in Krakow and he wrote a new chord progression. I just was not happy with the music I wrote and his version fit better for the song. I tried to sing it but just couldn’t get it right so I asked Lindy McNutt from our band to sing it. Bob Sturgill added 12 string guitar and I played lead guitar and screams!!! you will here my wife Suzanne talking in the intro telling Dad to get up…please share this with anyone who has felt the sadness of Dementia or Alzheimer’s if you like it lots of early pictures of dad and some of me and mom
Best compliment so far….Greg Connor (who wrote Takin Home the Pretty one for Dirty Thump) said he really loves Art’s guitar playing on this…Had to tell him it was all me…Art wrote the chord progression and inspired me to play my ass off…Thanks Art and Greg for you friendship and collaboration!! I hope this is not to depressing for you all share it with anyone who takes care of a loved one with this terrible disease Thanks!!!
