We really had a ter-RIFF-ic time at the very first booksigning at Bloomsbury Books in Ashland, Oregon! We were welcomed and made to feel at home by Susan and Greg and the gang. Thanks so much to them for hosting us at our own local, independent bookstore! And especially HUGE thank yous to everybody who came out to support the event on a rainy Oregon Monday evening.

We were told it was one of the best turnouts ever for a book signing there — if not THE best.

Craig played Live in-between readings and demonstrating how to manufacture a guitar pick from a recycled driver’s license (one of the things he was inspired to do as a youth from reading Guitar Player magazine!). On display during the evening, were some of Craig’s own rare, vintage issues of Guitar Player magazine dating from the ’60s to the ’80s.
