As a general rule I try not to get preachy in any of my songs. I threw that rule out the window when Joanne Cooper approached me to participate in an upcoming project for the Rhinose Foundation. My wife and I spend most of our free time outdoors and care deeply about the environment, so this was an easy assignment to accept. Thank You Joanne for your continued activism. It is meaningful and important.

Brother Rhino

Read a story on the internet that shook me to the core

rhinos left to die slaughtered for their horns

Powdered cures of folklore breeding callousness

Don’t take away our brothers they belong to all of us


Aren’t we all connected in some mysterious kind of way

Don’t we all live and breathe the same air every day

can’t seem to stop the killing no matter how we try

can we go on living while part of us is dying


Oh Brother Rhino can I walk this road with you

Can we change some minds show them what is true

Oh Brother Rhino Can we make a stand

I promise I will help you if I can


Aren’t we taught as children the sacredness of life

Did we lose our innocence while sharpening the knife

How can one man measure what a life is worth

i hate to think what’s down the road for our Mother Earth


Oh Brother Rhino can I walk this road with you

Can we change some minds show them what is true

Oh Brother Rhino Can we make a stand


I promise I will help you if I can

If it’s not too late I’ll help you if I can

Tom, I found your backdropping the ignorance and unfettered greed fueling and facilitating the
rhino's plight against one of humankinds latest marvels of communication ( aka the internet) particularly poignant.

Beautifully done Tom!! This is a great effort. Some wonderful, thoughtful lyrics, simple, sweet melody, ant the guitar....what can I say...you can play! It is not easy to write this kind of song, and you nailed it. It's not preachy, but heartfelt, deep, and thoughtful. Really excellent. There was only one thing in the mix that sounded a bit strong to me. I am listening on computer speakers (and that may be the reason) but the snare seems to ring out a bit too strong. I'll have to listen no better speakers but it pokes out a bit on these. Wonderful song Tom!! Take care. Greg

Hi Tom.

What a great way to get across the message.

I didn't expect anything that heavy, but it sure works well. That chorus is pure stadium rock.

Excellent vox and guitar and a great mix.

Excellent throughout - writing, singing, playing, mixing! I'm listening on Near Field Monitors with EQ set flat. Everything sounded excellent.

Another keeper, Tommy! Thank you, amigo.

Tom,

good one!! This world is a mess and thank goodness the fight to preserve wild animals continues, but it is sad this fight has to even exist.
This such a wonderful song but the words are so hard.

Well done!!

Patrick, I've always liked that word Poignant. Thanks for listening and commenting. Tom

Thanks Greg. The drums are intentionally loud ( The African connection) It made for a difficult mix. I appreciate the kind words on the write. Tom

Tom,

I like everything you do. This is one of my favorites (so far).

An excellent write. Says all it needs to with nothing out of place - and terrific phrasing. Gets the message across in a perfect package.

Nice vocal. The production is crisp, clean, clear, punchy. Nice guitar playing (and signatures).

The drums sound great.

I like everything about this.

Excellent.

Hi Tom. Thank you so much for your excellent contribution to this effort. I really appreciate it and I am sure we will get something really good going for this foundation. It is such a worthy cause and the past has shown that we can wipe out the demand for rhino horn and other animal parts with the carefully coordinated effort that this foundation can help with. THANK YOU.
