I am the road manager for a guitar player from Austin Texas named Tracy Conover. Somewhere along the way she nicknamed me "Spuds." I was going to start a website, but you guys already have the name. I will do something else.
The one question Tracy and I always get is what does Spuds mean? (Tracy even says my name on her live album before she plays "Redhouse".) Now I have a great answer, Special People Under Doctors Supervision. Go to her website www.tracyconover.com and click on Redhouse. You will hear her say "This one's for you, Spuds" at the beginning. Anyway, thanks for solving one of life's mysteries for me; now I am special.

I'm in a band called Spud. Spud doesn't stand for anything. We're really new, like a few months kind of new. Well, one day I was searching up "spud" in the yahoo browser and came across the site of Spuds. Which does stand for something. And I'd like to know, is it copyright infringement? Do we need to change our name? I figured I'd ask you since you're the manager. For more information on our band and whatever our site address is www.angelfire.com/rebellion/spud0
You just won't believe how my life has changed since I first heard your music. Actually, your CD has had a profoundly positive impact on my entire family.
Some may call it coincidence, but both of my kids have learned to read since playing your music for them. My oldest, Nick, has even finished the 2nd grade. Now we're hoping he'll make it through 4th.
Our dog Boomer, has really come around, too. Used to be that he'd pee on just about anything stationary or moving. One squirt on the speakers while your tunes were playing, and he's not been quite so loose with his plumbing.
The most amazing thing has been your music's effect on my wife, Ann. Let's just say that I walk around with a limp, wear a never ending grin, and am known as the luckiest man in Gainesville.
Need I say more? Thanks again, and keep on making great tunes.
Dr. Pat from Gainesville, Florida.
When I first received this note I was overwhelmed. When I showed it to the rest of the band at the next practice, well, there wasn't a dry eye in the cellar. After composing ourselves, we re-dedicated our musical directions to the fine Dr. and his family. Our new rallying cry is ...FOR DR. PAT'S LIMP AND GRIN!!!
