Autumn in New York? Hey, upstate counts too--just ask my wife Sandie, a gotta-gedoudahere escapee from Batavia, happy to head West all the way to Seattle. But two autumns back, we made the trek around New England from New York to Maine, and loved every minute, beautiful leaves drifting by the window or no.

Meanwhile, back in the West, Shank plus Perk and Conte made for some heavy metal joy, more gold than Silver, more wind at your back than Storm. I am so glad I too lived to see Bud's last great group live... but two of the co-leads are gone now. Autumn can really hang you up the most..
