Tools of the Trade on CD

Who is this 'Jerry Wilde' dude, anyway? The only way to honestly answer that question is to understand that many of us are forced to lead double lives. My regular life is that of a husband, father of two, and Sunday school teacher. But in my heart, I'm a BLUES MAN! I grew up listening to rock music and was first exposed to blues after reading an article about AC/DC in which Angus Young said he rarely listened to rock music and that he preferred Muddy Waters. I thought, 'Muddy Waters. Who's that?' In 1979 I picked up a copy of 'Hard Again' and I can honestly say my life has never been the same. In my teens and twenty's I played in numerous bands, but the music was still rock, not blues. When I got married and started raising a family I thought I had put music in my past. I knew I would always play guitar, blow the harp, and sing on the porch but I thought I was done with the serious pursuit of music. I didn't count on one simple fact...the music wasn't done with me. The result is 'Tools of the Trade,' a collection of original songs that pays homage to my heroes like Rory Gallagher and Johnny Winter. I handle all the vocals and music on this CD. There is a 'guest appearance' on 'Father and Son' by my seven-year-old son, 'Jawbone' Jack Wilde, a budding bluesman in his own right. This project has truly been a labor of love and if you have half as much fun listening to it as I did writing, playing, and producing it, then I'll be satisfied. If you're still wondering, 'Who is this Jerry Wilde dude?' I think I can answer it using the lyrics to the song 'Bed, Beer, and T.V. (Everyman's Blues).' I want a bed, my wife in it, I want some beer and television, I like baseball and fishing, No I don't care what I've been missing, I'm just trying to get by, Living the everyman's blues! That pretty much sums it up. Thanks for checking out my tunes! ADDENDUM: I keep noticing people doing google searches for the lyrics to 'This Child of Mine' so I decided to just add them here. I'm glad so many people like that song because it was a special song about a father's love for his daughter. It's by far the most downloaded song from the album. If you liked the song (or any of the tunes) feel free to drop me an email. Anyway, here are the lyrics: This Child of Mine (Anna's Song) This child of mine, this miracle, brings me joy everyday When she smiles I feel invincible, come whatever may Your mother and I, were so much in love, We never realized, we'd only just begun What was to come, was better by far A beautiful child, our chining star Watching you grow, I've realized You are the reason, that I'm alive A father's job, to surround you with love I'll do my best, with help from above And late at night, when sleep won't come I lay and wonder what you'll become I know you'll be kind, and follow your heart I've cherished each day, right from the start You're almost grown, ready for the world No matter your age you'll be, my baby girl A father's job, to surround you with love I'll do my best, with help from above.
