Myles Brand Tribute Report
10.30.2009 - On Wednesday, October 28, 2009, John performed two songs at a tribute event for his friend, former NCAA and Indiana University President Myles Brand. John prefaced his solo acoustic performance of "Longest Days" from the Life Death Love and Freedom album noting the long friendship their shared and how Myles always thought everything John said was funny. John said Myles found comfort in "Longest Days" as he fought his battle, ultimately succumbing to pancreatic cancer.



Before the event-closing performance of "Save Some Time To Dream," his new song,  John pointed out to the thousand plus in the audience--many of whom work in academia, "I think a lot of you folks here tonight provide hope and dreams for younger people, for the working class, for the struggling. Myles was always for the underdog." John then played a very touching version of the song.
