Hi Fellow Virgin Islanders,

I have written new lyrics to The Who's "My Generator". I think that it is something we all can relate to!

Here is the YouTube Link.

Steve Katz on bass and guitars, me on lead and backup vocals, Kardelle Prezident on drums and Padraic Coursey on backup vocals. Pad also produced, engineered and mastered the track.

We recorded at Padraic's Aqua Sounds Studios right here in Christiansted. Thanks again to a GREAT group of musicians for making this happen!

Enjoy!

Thanks to all of you who have listened to "My Generator".

It now has over 3.000 views on YouTube!

Happy that it is bringing some smiles (and awareness) during these trying times!

Stay VI Strong!!!

Wow, over 4,800 views on YouTube!

I didn't think that there were that many people with their internet restored in the VI!

Things really are getting better every day! Hopefully, someday soon this song will just be a reminder of that time when we didn't have power!

Thanks for listening and keep sharing!

You can check your channel analytical to see where the viewers came from, I doubt it was mostly VI.

I've posted your video and mine up a few places, yours is more popular (mine is much longer).

There was a [URL="http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/abinazir/2011/06/15/what-are-chances-you-would-be-born/"]1: 400,000,000,000,000[/URL] chance of you being born: what have you done with your miraculous life today?

I sent links to the video to my family and friends up here in CT. They all loved it.
See you in person next week.
