Holding On By A Thread

I’ve been asked so many times to play “Holding On By A Thread” live, I never have. It’s such a dark song; it scares me to be in the same room with it. I’ve never included it on a set list. In November 2013, I did few marathon shows at Live Oaks back to back, hadn’t slept for two days,(it shows) and decided to sit down with the crew for an impromptu jam session. I remember feeling like death warmed over. It’s maybe why I broke into the first ever live performance of “Holding On By A Thread” All be it in front of a very small audience of crew from the Live Oaks shows. That’s video producer Tyler Council & bassist Player Guillermo Vega on guitar with me. This was the one and only time we played it. The guys didn’t know what I was going to play. Neither did I till I broke into it. Unbeknownst to me some of the crew picked up video cameras’ and started taping. What you see here is as raw as it gets.
