m. ward on the late show
apparently i am incapable of going more than a few days without posting something m. ward related...but hey, it's m. ward so that's okay right? the new album drops on tuesday, but in the meantime he made his network television debut last night on the late show with david letterman. good for him, finally some big time exposure. the song was "chinese translation", a great pick to initiate the uninitiated, and one of the guys in his band (i'll have to figure out his name because he was cool) played what dave said looked like "part of a truck wheel". and it did! carefully watch the guitar solo near the end of the song--when i saw m. ward solo last year at the john ansen ford amphitheatre, i swear it looks like he plays with six fingers on his hand. i have to say, i really, really appreciated his solo performance and so wasn't sure what to think when i heard the new album and the new tour would be his first with a backing band. but from the looks and sound of this performance it looks like it will be just as great. can't wait until september 28th!
