he travels 200 days per year and takes a photo out of each hotel room he is in.
gerry beckley is from the group America he collects vintage tennis shoes and is one of the nicest people I've met through this blog.
a few things he shared with me
1. photos. the pictures started as a way to stay in touch with friends & family. here's where I am today & this is what it looks like out my window.
2. home is fluid. both my band partner dewey and I grew up in service families (air force) as i child I moved every couple of years ... to me, home is a feeling, not a place...
i have found home in the most surprising of places, telling me that it's inside of me, more than anywhere else.
3. collecting tennis shoes. I spent most of my youth in england. I played tennis from a very early age into my teens. we wore very simple canvas plimsoles or at most dunlop volleys.
that's how it all got started. I lived in those shoes.
I'm even wearing them on our first album cover from 1971.
As with all things shoe styles progressed. it became harder to find these simple old style shoes so whenever I found a pair I figured I better pick them up this carried on through my travels, australia... south america until before I knew it I had far more than I really needed.
