What do we know about Ohio?

Yes, we know Cleveland Rocks - (but only in the original Ian Hunter version, not the other ones).

But what else?

We KNOW Ohio has such a flare for spectacle that the Cuyahoga River caught on fire. A river on fire! Now that's non-dual. It must have been beautiful.

Thanks to Randy Newman, we know that, and we know what Dayton felt like in 1903.

Admittedly, I do not have any songs about Ohio... YET. I intend to correct this oversight. In fact, after this week of shows in Ohio, I wouldn't be surprised if I write an ALBUM about Ohio. I will name names, and invent half-truths and total lies (that's art for ya'- lies telling truths). I aim to start and end relationships on this leg of the tour. There will be drama.

We know Ohio has numerous bizarre laws, and I can promise you, I will BREAK THEM ALL. Prosecute me?

We know in Ohio it's illegal get a fish drunk. What's that? That's me, with a bottle of Vodka in one hand and a live Salmon in the other, and one of us - no, BOTH of us, are getting hammered in Ohio. Bring it on, coppers!

We know breast feeding is illegal in Ohio. Well, I'm lactating, and I will feed my drunk Salmon from my exposed bosom on the steps of the capital, and I challenge the Police to stop me.

How will I get away with all this? Simple. I will do it on Sunday. In Ohio, it is illegal to arrest anyone -even an artist- on Sunday. That's my fun day. I don't have-to-run-day.

These are my first-ever shows in Ohio. Dayton (Pow!), Athens (Blam!), and Cleveland (Zammo!) It's going to be exuberant and jubilant.

If you don't live in Ohio, move there. If you don't have friends in Ohio you will. Let's set a River on fire with the Light of our numinous mayhem, join me, and you just might end up a character in an epic Ohio anthem...

By the way, we're shooting a new music video next week, directed by Joe LaMattina. It's for They're Already Here, the second single to the new album Music for Mortals. You can buy it on iTunes.

Don't forget Twitter yadda yadda and Facebook so forth and so on.
