Hey guys...

We're about to celebrate another Independence Day Weekend. Whatever you've got planned, I hope you have a really great time. I'm planning on doing some really fun things in and around the most amazing city on the planet. Probably heading up to Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Eat some hot dogs. Watch some baseball.

This is, however, the first Fourth of July Weekend that I'm not gonna be sharing music and laughs with a crowd of sweet people in Central Park. Every year for the past 24 years on July Fourth Weekend, besides sharing an afternoon of music and laughs, smiles and stories and thoughts, we celebrate a little tradition at "The Hill" in Central Park called "Hot Dog Day". Well, that's not gonna happen this year.

The people in the Permit Office at The Parks Department wouldn't issue us the permit we need to hang out in the park this weekend. (I know. I know. I'm really disappointed, too.) I mean, they have a really, really tough job over there. They generally do it well. But I kinda wish someone from that office would come out and hang with us for one afternoon to feel what we feel out there. But y'know, as my friend Roger Bartlett always says... "If a frog had wings he wouldn't bump his ass when he hops!"

This is what they're saying "NO" to.

Oh well...

Maybe we need a hero, someone to go to City Hall and say, "Dammit! It's a beautiful thing that happens in that park every weekend we get to hang together." And then just for good measure, add another, "Dammit!"

.

Oh well. Have fun guys!!!

Gotta keep focusing on the beauty in this world. The ugliness will always be there. Let's all keep trying to move a little closer to the Light every day. I have work to do. The tools of my work are music and the written word. We all have different ways of feeding the beauty and starving the ugly. I hope we all get use them during our next lap around the Sun. I hope we all feel a part of One world in 2015.

Oh listen... nobody is more disappointed or heart-broken than me that there will be no video this year from "The Something'th Annual Year End Concert". But trust me, we had a blast... again. Actually we had people travel from Maryland and Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, just so they could be in town for this gig. (A couple from Europe actually told they scheduled their trip to the Big Apple around this concert!)

So very cool.

Here are the first photos from this year's gig.

A note from filmmaker Dean Love...

As you may know I am producing a documentary about "That Guitar Man from Central Park". I would like to ask all David's fans out there to write me and tell me any stories you may have about David and his playing in Central Park and how it has affected you or what it has meant to you. I've already heard some great stories, but I know there are more that I haven't heard. So if you got a story to tell about David and his music, please briefly write it out and send it to stories@thatguitarman.com. I will be contacting people from the stories submitted to interview them for possible inclusion in the film. Thank you and I look forward to seeing everyone on the hill this summer.
- Dean
