Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. This is my first release. I guess it's unusual for someone of my years to be releasing a CD, but the spirit moved me. I'm a 60 year old Vietnam veteran, and still hold my Norman Rockwell version of the American spirit and dream. But that picture is getting blotted out amidst all the home foreclosures, bankruptcies, and ten years of war. Corporate America tracks everything we do, and passes it on to the government for analysis. What happened? Isn't there irony when we sing of the land of the free and the home of the brave, and know that we have more people in jails than any other nation, banks illegally foreclose on military families, and the care and compensation of our veterans is so often delayed or denied? So the spirit moves me. I'm hoping that these songs will stir a momentum for good, that they will become anthems and rally points for change. For obvious reasons, I have an especially strong interest in veterans' issues. The VA has many dedicated people whose hands are tied by administrative policy and process. Many, if not most veterans who need help are delayed or denied benefits for four or more years. The organization that I believe is taking the lead in helping those 'limbo-vets' is the Wounded Warrior Project. If you'd like to join me in helping the Wounded Warrior Project, please consider buying 'What Kind of Love?' All proceeds from the download sale of this song will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. (Actually, I hope you buy them all, but that song is special to me.) This CD was a labor of love that could not have been accomplished without the cast of characters I was blessed with. EJ Ouellette was my mentor and producer, and played all the stringed instruments you'll hear. Peter Whitehead played the drums. All of those sweet, sweet harmonies you hear are the gift of Kristine Kobialka (Kobe). Steve Baker graced me with his saxophone. But the inspiration and encouragement to do this came from my wife, Linda. I hope the songs cause you laugh and cry, and that you are moved to take back the American dream before it can no longer be recovered. Mike Keenan, March 22, 2011.
