South by South-West

At South by South-West, I had a chance to have a two hour lunch with an American rock star – Jeremy Averitt He took us to one of the best Mexican Restaurant in Austin – the name of which escapes memory, because I was driving and forced to focus entirely on understanding the British accent of the guy giving us directions through the packed streets. Jeremy played a show and had a few hours to killbefore catching a flight to Denver to do another show. I volunteered to give him a ride to the airport in the Open Range Zoo car after lunch - he took the bait. As the three of us talked, Morgan was curious about the way a rock star like Jeremy eats a taco and was constantly sneaking a peek at his lunch plate. Morgan talked a lot, not realizing or caring she was talking to a rock star. Jeremy gave Morgan generous advice on keyboards and music technology, complete with praise for the use of the Alabama travel case for instruments, in general. With Morgan as a distraction, I was able to take a few casual photos of Jeremy. It was a good education for the kid in the rock and roll life – tacos and all.
