I was fortunate to have the most wonderful English teacher that was ever put on earth.
Dennis Lindsey was not that much older than me when I first was introduced to him in High School.
It was Dennis that convinced me to start playing in public. A big inspiration to me and a big supporter of my music.
Dennis also owned horses and he put me in mind, from time to time, as someone who might like the west.
This song, 'The Ballad of Matthew and the Priest' was written for Dennis Lindsey.
A great teacher and a great friend.
