Steve Earle Guitar Changes Hands

Frequent readers here might remember a little project I started back in November. If you missed it, I sent one of my guitars over to Iraq to keep a friend occupied until he came home. At first I hoped he’d bring the guitar home to me. And then I changed my mind.

I had only one request: Keep passing the guitar on to other soliders until the war is over and everyone gets to come home. The was isn’t over. That much is clear. But, I’m exceptionally happy to report that Doc Chako is coming home. I’d be happier if the guitar was packed in Chako’s luggage. Still, I’m pleased to see it has a new home.

I don’t know much about Danny or his story yet. Hopefully, I’ll learn more in the coming days.

In the meantime, here’s to safe passage for Chako. Even more, here’s to seeing somebody bring that guitar home soon.


In honor of the musical flavor of the day, here are some more…
