I'm debuting my new header image today, a photo of the stage from my time on the Empress of the North, a river boat on the Columbia. I guess maybe the old picture of me swilling beer at the end of yet another, what, "country" night? "Patriotic" night? "20's-30's-40's" night? -didn't have the gravitas befitting a blog entitled Cruise Ship Drummer! with an exclamation point, though I thought it did capture a certain dark spirit of the thing.
So, as we say goodbye, here in all it's splendor is the uncropped photo, taken aboard the Queen of the West river boat by bassist Andrea Niemic using my camera in 2006.
