That Parental Emotion

Hey Folks –

It’s probably old news to most of you, but the reason we’re on hiatus is because I’m a new dad and consequently have my hands full. Thelonious James Mack was born 7/24, to the sounds of “Up For the Down Stroke” by Parliament. Yes, I was DJing.

Theo is a wonderful little guy. He’s got his first tooth, and he’s babbling (ahem) up a storm. I won’t bore you with the gushings of a new father – if you’re interested he has his own website where I do that.

So for the short term, there’s not going to be a lot of action in the TPE camp, at least not all together. I’ve been jumping around with some friends in Seattle (more about that in another post), and rumour has it that another Petrol might be playing out with some new songs – but I’ll let him announce when he’s ready.

Happy holidays, all, and we hope to see you all again sometime soon. I’ll leave you with my favorite photo of Theo, taken when he was about one month old. Swoon!

  1. Ohwow, Steve…very well done, he’s gorgeous.
    And….he does so look like you…lol…I imagine the hair (wet-flap-Spaghetti-look) on his head and I see you.
    All the best for you and the little prince.
    Take care…

  2. Hey Steve – belated congrats. Is that your first or second child? Kiss goodbye to proper night’s sleeps, say hello to a lifetime of responsibility. But keep on keeping on.
