Some Thoughts Muses & Meanderings / Always Felt I Would Be Here
« on: December 19, 2017, 03:10:16 PM »
I do not post often because I have always been a public person, an Entertainer, and Producer. I feel that public people talk too much sometimes and do not consider the consequences of their discussions with those that follow them from afar. It is a habit I got into after some hard life lessons of the consequences coming home to roost.

What I want to say here and the questions I want to ask are related. I have always felt in my heart, that when Jesus returned, I would be here. I have been afraid to say this because it could be misconstrued as vanity. I have just always felt that Jesus wanted some people to be here and I was on the list, not from some special power I would possess but more from the way I respect His authority and will follow directions without question if I am sure of the source. There are very few sources higher than Jesus.

My question is, have any of you felt this way before? I hope so because I don't want to be judged as "a plumb out of bob" for this feeling. But, this is the risk I am taking to ask this question and hope for guidance in your answers!

It was suggested that I should tell my story here so as to become more familiar to the group. First I will tell you why I use the nickname Dreamcat. My daughter who was 4 at the time, was talking to us about having a cat. I said to her "we don't have a cat" and she replied "I have a dream cat!" What a name and I formed a music publishing company using it.
I started being a performing professional musician at age 17 and was a saxophone player when I went to Nashville and cut my first album. I was a follower of Boots Randolph and he was my idol. I learned his "licks" for many years" Had my record out and played on radio and did okay. I was Junior Entertainer of the year for the VA Folk Music Association several years.
I then went to UT Knoxville and earned a Bachelor Of Applied Music which means you can play but don't want to teach. Played around Atlanta and formed my own bands. I was called to the studio one day and was the sax soloist on "Spooky" and "Stormy" by Dennis Yost. I hear myself on elevators sometimes. I did an album with Grammy winner William Bell (won his Grammy this year). It is on the "Survival" album. I was offered a relocation to Las Vegas NV by Charles Hansen of Charles Hansen Music. My wife and I were to run 2 music stores. I didn't like doing that so I went out and found a gig. Played many "Strip" shows of all kinds. I was offered the position of Assistant Producer and I did that job for 25 years for several producers.
As I write this, I am putting the finishing touches on a plan to relaunch a show I worked on "American Superstars" It will open next year at either Bally's or Stratosphere. That's about all to tell and those are the highlights. Needless to say I have a lot of funny stories about working with stars and on shows. I enjoy handling the nuts and bolts of Productions and I'm good at it.
Thanks for listening--Mike
