Welcome to the New

Welcome to the new Acoustic Ross dot (as they say) com!

If this seems like a pretty big change, it is. The old site was nothing but raw HTML code – I wasn’t even using CSS – as best I could teach myself to write, and after 14 years of that it was time to move to something easier to maintain and update.

So this is that. We’ve made the move to a WordPress site now, and as with any move, first you move in, then you unpack, and it’s that second part we’re working on now here at Acoustic Ross Central.

It’s gonna take a while. But everything’s on its way back, with a lot of new stuff coming along as well.

There are currently THREE albums in the works around here, and we’ve recently relaunched our sister site, – home of the zine I started in 1991, which recently ended a decade-long hiatus.

TL, DR: Welcome. Things are happening. Stay tuned.

My Heart May Or May Not Go On.

(originally posted 1/4/2016)

If you’ll pardon me being not all that funny for a minute, I’ve got a fairly major update.

I wasn’t around here much last year. I haven’t been around here much the last few years. I did a handful of shows and mostly was kind of invisible in 2015.

There are some reasons.

2014 took my Dad.
2015 took my 17-year-old cat Groucho.
Then 2015 tried to take me too.

I spent most of the year living with a life-threatening heart condition, which I had for months before I knew what it was. I still have it, under tighter control now, and things have been moving in a positive direction for some time.

I’ve been quiet about it online – some people know a little, some know a lot, most haven’t heard much, so I wanted to put some words on paper/web. I’m not asking for positive vibes, thoughtsandprayers, or anything else, although they’re appreciated, just posting this out of a desire to share information.

I’ll be back on some stages and in some recording formats soon. Big plans for the next few years – hoping they’re a bit kinder than their recent predecessors. I plan to find out first-hand.
