Martin Mull once said that "writing about music is like dancing about architecture", I agree that trying to sum up the power of music with our limited human vocabulary is ridiculous. That aside, I will do my best to do just that. Music has been my savior, my confessor, and the longest romance of my life. Scoring my earliest moments in the crib, the crushing loss of first love and the birth of my child. Everything I am I owe to her. Though I am completely in love with the power she wields, Jeff often describes me as a musician who hates music, I like what I like and very little else. I suppose he should know we have been as tight as brothers since '89.

Jeff, Dan and I have been writing songs and hanging out together since the early 90's and we have had a great ride. Whether it was playing our own music or goofing off in silly costumes playing old disco songs, we always have a good time and we can always find something to laugh at…usually each other. I am so glad that we have found the other personalities to round out our eccentric little circus. Bob, Dez, and Mike are genuinely great people and we are lucky to have them. Although I try not to take the cover band thing too seriously, after all I didn't write these songs (remember that Robert Plant guy... You are not "The Tall Cool One", you are just a chump in a wig, and your not even British!). Sometimes it is hard to reconcile your rock star aspirations with the fact that someone else's music makes the lion's share of your money and takes most of your free time. But the fans make up for all of it. I have been fortunate enough to meet some of the best people around doing this job. People who actually care about us, and our lives, so thank you everyone.

Before I duck out I guess I should address the question that I am asked most, "Who's your favorite band?" or "What's your biggest influence?" I guess I would have to say my biggest influence is originality. I find great joy in people who have their own voices, be they on an instrument, or their literal vocal cords. My idols are ugly, gritty and real. They are the people who really have something to say. When I am asked of my influences I usually say that "you've probably never heard of them", not that I am hip or cutting edge, only that my taste is obscure. I like different things for different reasons, but I should probably list a few of my favorite artists. Jellyfish was one of my favorite bands EVER! "Spilt Milk" was our generations "Sgt. Pepper's" that no one ever heard. Elvis Costello is god. Del Amitri is the greatest thing to ever come from Scotland. Steve Earl is a southern fried genius. Humble Pie (in the mid-70's) was the world’s greatest rock band period. Ben Folds is the songwriter I would love to be. Lyle Lovett is the lyricist I wish I was. Morrisey has the witty cynicism I wish I had, and Johnny Thunders had the cool I can never achieve. I am happy with who I am and what I am accomplishing. As corny as it is, I believe in the power of music, the power that can change a life or save it. I cannot ever hope that my little songs could effect the world the way my heroes have affected me, but I can hope that perhaps they can make people feel what I did when I wrote them.

Thank you all for the wonderful times and I am looking forward to another decade.

All the best... J

DAN MILLIGAN

10 things you probably don’t know about Dan Milligan:

  1. Proofreading is my superpower.
  2. In 10 years I have only missed one Libido Funk Circus show. In fact, I once played several weeks worth of LFC shows with a broken left hand. I never claimed to be smart…just dedicated.
  3. I'm the CFO for my wife’s resume-writing/career counseling company, ResuMAYDAY. I also created the music and jingle that are used in ResuMAYDAY's radio spot, which is now playing on 99.9 FM. Check out www.ResuMAYDAY.com...
  4. I need two pillows to sleep properly at night.
  5. Inexplicably, I have recently become a closet "Do-It-Yourself-er". Last year I painted my entire house. This year I am installing a large, 2-tier deck, a stone walkway and landscaping my entire yard. 3 years ago I would have done none of these things.
  6. An LFC fan and I once figured out that I kick my bass drum at least 21,600 times per night at our shows.
  7. When I was younger, our band used to practice in a haunted house. I loved playing my drums so much that I would go there by myself, at night, to practice. I'm not claiming to be smart…just dedicated.
  8. Many years ago I met members of the Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and U2…all in one night!
  9. I write amazing refrigerator-magnet poetry.
  10. I don't have a favorite drummer and I HATE talking about musical equipment. Phew…I feel so much better now that I said it! If you want to send me running at a show, go ahead and ask me about the equipment I use. That being said, here is a list of some of the people and bands that I am truly grateful for, because without them I would not be the person/musician I am today.
  • Hybrid - Take two of the world’s greatest DJs, add a 200-piece Russian orchestra and watch the magic. Big Beat Electronica meets Pink Floyd. Unbelievable.
  • The The - It’s common now, but The The was the very first “one-man-band” I had ever heard of. The sticker on the front cover of The The’s 1993 album Dusk proclaims it to be “10 songs for the Lost, Lonely and Lustful” which says it all.
  • Ani DiFranco - She is one of those gifted lyricists with the knack for turning a phrase that you will never forget, and she does it at least 10 times in every song.
  • King’s X - Terminally uncool, King’s X is a band enjoyed only by musicians. Why? I have no idea, but it’s true. Potentially my favorite band of all time.
  • Pink Floyd - What can I say…moody music (in all of its many forms) is my favorite and the Floyd invented their own brand of it.
  • Yuval Gabay - Mainly known as the drummer for Soul Coughing, this guy is like a fountain of grooves. Only drummers know how good this guy really is.
  • Metallica - My life-long love affair with heavy and moody music kicked into overdrive many years ago when I heard Master of Puppets for the first time. 20 years later, they still kick my ass.
  • Seal - I love every record Seal has ever released…not to mention he is probably the single biggest influence on my writing style.
  • The Posies and Jellyfish - Anyone who loves pop-rock music loves both The Posies and Jellyfish. Period.
  • Nine Inch Nails - Token? Maybe, but back in 1989 Trent Reznor completely altered the way I thought of music and he continues to do so with every new CD he releases.

Last, but definitely NOT least, I have to give a shout-out to the most important musical influences in my life…my bandmates both past and present. I have created the soundtrack to my own life with these guys, and I am forever grateful to them for it.
