For the love of John Doe.

Allow me to say a few words about my friend on the eve of the release date for his amazing new CD Forever Hasn't Happened Yet.

If you didn't catch his three performances during SXSW, you can still...

-- Read a nice CD review by Jim Farber here.
"Doe can afford to be dry in his lyrics because his voice communicates an unusual degree of emotion. His greatest gift, in fact, is his ability to express humanity in his vocals. Exuding a masculinity untainted by macho swagger, he has become an icon of American goodness in both his music and his movie performances."
-- Download or stream the track "Hwy 5," co-written with Exene and sung with Neko Case, from the Yep Roc site.

-- Catch him on one of his tour dates (say hi to my boys in the Nick Luca trio).

-- Watch Conan O'Brien on Thursday March 31st when John performs live.

-- Buy Forever Hasn't Happened Yet when it comes out tomorrow, will ya? (If you buy from Amazon, you can stream the record immediately. On the Amazon page you can also download "Forever For You," a duet with Jane Wiedlin & my favorite song off of his last record.)

-- Free music from artisthenewreligion! To the first person who emails me at sfist.music(at)gmail.com, I'll send a code for a free iTunes download of "Ready" from the new record.
