I don't really have a "best year" for music, but 1997 WAS pretty great.
I will be at TCAF
this weekend! You should come say hi! I will be at the Topatoco table, sellin' books and prints and other fun stuff. I also have a panel where I give a guided tour of my studio, and you can see that I own far too many guitars.
Anyway see you there, or see you Monday!
