Changes to the Covers page

I updated the Covers page. I added a video playlist of cover versions of Cranford’s songs. It’s easy to add songs to the playlist, so everyone’s songs can be added with ease!

I’m constantly blown away with the people I meet because of Cranford. Everyone is so nice and so cool.

Life is good friends. Be safe. Be happy.

A Great Loss. A Great Cover

Loss
Don’t think about today friends. Think about every day you were able to spend with little man. Every time you listened to a Cranford Nix song. Every time you made music with him. Every time he played you a Stones song. Every time he made you laugh. Every time he made you want to hit him with something heavy. Every time he bummed a smoke, or a pack as was usually the case.

Cranford Nix, I am very thankful that I knew you. I’m thankful for the friends I’ve made since your passing. I would have never met Fast Mike. Can you imagine a world without that crazy, lovable man?? Its not a world I want to live in. I miss you. I’m not alone. We all miss you. I was just getting to know you again. I wish I had known you better in the end. You told me you had some songs recorded that you wanted to put on the web. They are there, brother. And people are still listening. All over the world. You should be here to see that your songs have value. They endure.

Friends and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I’m so thankful for your friendship. I hope that you are okay and that someone has hugged you today.

Fans of Little Man, I’m glad you are here. I am so happy that you found Cranford’s music. Welcome to the family.

Please remember that although a lot of Cranford’s songs have drug references in them, that drugs are stupid. A mother and father have lost her son. Sisters have lost their brother. Two boys have lost their father. The world has lost a true one of a kind person to drugs.

We’re all that special – you are that special. Please don’t be a rock n roll cliche. It’s not cool. Have fun, but please be careful.

Cover
Brian from Treatment Bound sent me a link to a new studio version cover of A Heart That Ain’t Ever Been Pure. I hope you enjoy it.

Here are the guys performing it live! I especially love the Slim Jim Phantom style drummer. Cranford loved The Stray Cats!

Software Update Fail

I tried to update WordPress (the normal way), and it crashed. Now the site is running sluggish and has bombed on me a couple times. If you encounter any issues, please let me know (tsteffes@hotmail.com?subject=Cranford). I will try to get it fixed over the holidays.

I wish you all a very happy holiday. I hope you are able to be with the ones you love. Never take them for granted because things change in an instant and they could be gone. Don’t sweat little things. Don’t hold grudges. Forgive. Love yourself and tell the ones you love that you love them.

Family and friends of Little Man, you are my family. I love you all very much. I’ve been so touched by the love you’ve shown me because I’m nobody. Together we’re keeping the memory of our dear friend alive.

-Tim

Credit where credit is due

I received an email from Casey Schwochow of Ambervillain Films (link). They were the person who filmed the Gold Dollar show.

Thank you Casey! No, actually – THANK YOU CASEY!!! We are so grateful. Words, even with all caps, can’t adequately express our gratitude.

How did I miss posting this one?!?

I’m at work and I needed a Cranford fix. I’ve seen this one before and I thought I posted it, but I can’t find it. I will get it into the site properly, in the meantime, please enjoy this via YouTube.
