Lots going on these days in my life... Finished up work on the JAPANESE RUDOLPH book. Planning a HOLIDAY CD performance tour/book signing tour at BORDERS BOOKS & MUSIC in Illinois! Dates and store information to follow soon. I recorded a new demo of a song I wrote just last week called "How can you sleep at night?" I recorded it at SWEET MEAT STUDIOS in Northbrook, Illinois with TOM MARGARITES. Dennis Riordan played BASS and I actually ended up playing Rhythm and Lead guitar and doing all the singing. I am very happy with this particular demo and I want to add it to my MY SPACE page soon www.myspace.com/rickgoldschmidt . In my spare time, my son JOSH and I have been doing a bit of skateboarding on my new SHAG board. It is good exercise and a great way to relax! I am also planning some more LIVE performances soon for THE STARVING ARTISTS...stay tuned!
