Woody runs/owns the famous Unofficial
Leo Kottke Website.
Lives in the frozen north tundra (ie; Canada) & actually
seems to like it. He lives in a cabin out in the woods with
his blind girlfriend. Well, we don't know for sure that she
is blind, but if you've seen Woody's picture on his homepage
you just know she has to be.
He plays at a speed approaching Mach
2, and even sings - ugh, a singing pig. There were serious
doubts about his manhood after we heard his tape, until he
told us that his recorder had speeded up - made him sound
like he was inhaling helium. I guess I'll believe
Woody plays a lot of Kottke tunes
note for note - real clean. In real life, he's some kinda
computer genius (don't think ol' Bill Gates is nervous).
BTW, he got his name from a great practical joke he played
on us last year. A three beer story - but it kinda involved
Woody Woodpecker - nuff said.
Woody has a bunch of cheap Canadian
guitars that aren't worth mentioning. After complaining for
three years about not having a decent guitar, he finally bit
the bullet and bought a used Taylor 514-CW this past spring.
He tells us it's a beautiful guitar but he didn't bring it
to WAB (something about forklifts and airline cargo holds).
He's also the first pig to order a custom-made 12-string
A number of us finally met Woody at
the annual "Weekend at Bernie's" (WAB) this year. The good
news is that he's a nice guy (for a Canuck) - the bad news
is that he had all of us saying "eh?" at the end of our
sentences by the time he left - and my cat turned up
pregnant. So what do you think of that, eh?
