The Dvd of my film, The Disciples of Gill, has arrived,
and ready to ship for those who would like the
film and those who have already ordered. The run
is not huge, so get your order in now. They might
not last long...

Order through

Thanks, and all the best to everyone.

Cool! Thanks, Pat.

I was away and missed seeing it when you were in the Bay Area last year. Just placed an order. Can't wait to see this film :-)

Not to be too snitty, but how many minutes is the film? Hope your health is good, and you are ripping the rocks to pieces Pat.

Neither, but I am working on my second film.
As most know I have a kind of "Godfather part II" going,
since the first film really only tapped the surface...
Even now, as I finish this second film, I realize
how deep the climbing world's love goes for my friend
John Gill. There is no end to it...

The Disciples of Gill is about an hour in length,
and everything else is there at the website.

My new CD has arrived too. It will probably be gone,
though, quickly, just in the mailing to those
who have been faithful longtime fans... There are
people here who have been listening to my music since
I would perform for little groups that would gather
at the lodge or at the chapel in Yosemite late at night...
in about 1970... Time flies, as they say...

Just ordered both cd's. I still remember your piano playing in the Lodge around 1971. I was pretty impressed!
After listening to your music on your website--I was really impressed!!!

Thanks so much, Steve. I remember a day when I snuck off to
play the piano in the lodge, and Breashears went around and
gathered up a little crowd of people, and suddenly it was like
a concert. No one was there but our little group... I miss
not having that big lounge to relax in and play chess...

Done. looking forward to watching your DVD on John Gill.
Had the privledge of meeting Mr. Gill and eating a little pizza with him in Pueblo a few years ago after climbing there and sharing a hike down with him. Very nice man and a fast hiker. A few years ago David Crosby released a three CD compilation called "Voyages" One of the obscure songs I had never heard before was "The Climber" Interstingly he said in the book that came with the CDs that he thought it was the best song he ever wrote.

I'm in.

Pat, I enjoyed the books about Gill, and I find myself mulling over for years his observations about climbing. So I'm looking forward to this.
