Here's a video I made at the Starbucks in the apartment community across from the Irvine Spectrum...I'm guessing this was late 2006, early 2007. A masterful, intimate performance.

Alright...beginning of a new year, so what better time to make a resolution. While cleaning out some drives, I came upon a well spring of rare music to lay upon the blog so the world can hear and enjoy.
This first little gem is MC5 (well... Michael Davis & Wayne Kramer) being interviewed and performing with Steve Jones. Classic performance!
I have TONS of these Jonesy's Jukebox shows so if there's anything you'd like to hear, drop me a line.
