Arnold McCuller Chat at James Taylor Online
25 June 2001

Joel - The Arnold McCuller chat will begin at 6 p.m. Pacific / 9 p.m. Eastern time
Joel - We'll have about 30 minutes of moderated chat followed by an open period where everyone will have a chance to join in.
Joel - Just a few minutes to go and we'll get started.
Joel - In the meantime, you can get a sneak peak of Arnold's new CD, "Back To Front."
Joel - Just visit and click on Albums to hear samples.
Joel - The new CD is composed of songs Arnold has performed with other artists in the past. Two JT songs are among them.
Joel - The link will open in a new window, by the way.
arno - What do you think of the JT covers
Joel - It's a great album, Arnold -- and a good place to start our chat.
Joel - Welcome, everyone.
Joel - Arnold's new CD isn't quite ready for release, but I've heard it and it's excellent.
arno - I am so glad to finally record or release Hot and Sultry Afternoon after 22 years
Joel - You included First of May and Up From Your Life on the CD. What made you pick them?
Joel - Why that one?
arno - It's the only original on the record
Joel - And it was finally time to record it?
arno - First of may because of JT tunes that I've sung it was up and positive, Up from your life reminds me of my brother and JT's brother, Alex
arno - I love Hot and Sultry and it's just been a long time coming
Joel - I imagine at least a few folks are listening to samples now. They were just added to your site today.
arno - Cool tell me honestly please.
Joel - It's a great collection. Lazy Nina is a personal favorite.
Joel - I'll pretend it was my lobbying that got it on the album.
arno - It was sprcically for Sandra!
Joel - (Sandra is the webmaster's wife, for anyone who wondered)
Joel - Who originally recorded that one?
Joel - When can folks expect to get their hands on the finished product, then?
Joel - I know you plan to have it ready for sale at JT shows later in the tour.
arno - Greg Phillingganes. The world reknowned session keyboard player, written with Donald Fagan. You know how I love his stuff
arno - Product will be available in NY ant Jones Beach or soon thereafter. I was assured two weeks fro yesterday.
Joel - You and the band are on a brief break in the JT tour right now. I know you've been using it to conquer Hollywood.
Joel - Did the rehearsal happen today?
Joel - For those who may not have seen it on Arnold's site, he's filming a role for the upcoming Tom Clancy film, Sum of All Fears.
Joel - As I understand it, Arnold's character will be personally responsible for defending North American from nuclear terrorists.
arno - No i had Wardrobe consultation today and I simply shoot it Weds.
Joel - Ben Affleck and Morgan Freeman are in the film, too, but I expect Arnold's name will be above the title. Right, Arnold?
arno - That's a stretch Joel!
arno - I'll be lucky to get end credits!
Joel - But your scene is set in a stadium, right? Even though you won't actually be in one at the time of shooting?
Joel - Look for Arnold singing the National Anthem while terrorists plot their dirty deeds.
arno - Right. I'll shoot in in the studio and it will be added like magic later. i believe i get blown up!
Joel - Ouch. That does make it hard to get a starring credit, I expect.
Joel - So what can you tell us about the JT tour so far, Arnold?
Joel - Any great moments? Lame moments?
Joel - Again, folks, if you'd like to hear some of the tracks from Arnold's upcoming CD, just visit
arno - It's really different. The tour manager is new production, manager, two new horn guys, percussion some new crew, new video projections and new set. It was abit much at first but we're settling in now. It should be easier the next leg.
Joel - And that's not far off. I know a lot of folks have their tickets in hand and are counting down the days until you guys come to town.
arno - Great moment. Charlotte show forme. Lame moment a private show on someone's lawn!
Joel - Have you met any fans at the shows?
arno - Not really this time I see peolpe that I relate to but not many have come back.
Joel - It's probably not for lack of trying. The venues can be a bit strict on that front.
arno - Yea. I did make an aquaintance through David that could possibly be helpful in the future.
arno - I must say I like what Laura is doing with David's site. It looks good. and the notes from the road are interesting.
Joel - Right. I know folks love hearing a little of the inside story of the tour.
Joel - David is David Lasley, for anyone who doesn't know:
Joel - You don't have much time left before heading back to the tour. Are you looking forward to it?
Joel - Is touring more fun when you have a CD to offer folks on their way out?
arno - I am looking forward. I have lots of favorite cities coming up, old friends and family in Cleveland, Blossom Music Center.
arno - I love sharing my music with people to let them know that singing back-up is not all I aspire to do.
Joel - The CD will be available for sale via Arnold's site soon too, folks.
Joel - I think I've probably monopolized you long enough, Arnold.
Joel - Other folks surely have their own questions for you.
Joel - Shall we open the floodgates?
arno - Open up and let me have it!
arno - I'll type and read as fast as I can
Joel - Okay, folks. Just click "reload" or "refresh" in your browser and you should be able to log in.

Bobby - How can I get a copy of JT version of "The Way You Look Tonight" sung with the Boston Pops?
jojo - sunshune
arno - Of course it's noticable. And tell you fellow audience members that we can read their lips often and it's not polite to point. At anything.
Bat ^o^ - Arno> Bat would love to hear you, JT, and crew sing "There We Are" and "Don't Be Sad Cause Your Sun Is Down" THAT would be COOL!

willow - LOL@arnold
Lisa - and Me too!
Tolk -
arno - Don't be sad is the bomb
helen - well, I don't think it's polite to talk when people on stage are trying to sing. In fact, it's downright rude.
Tee_ - Keep begging Helen! Please...
jojo - i agree!!! my mom taught me that arnold
GG - Arnold...that's really interesting that you can
Houdini - Arnold do I have your permission to beat the heck out of somebody who won't shut up? lol

GG - erstand what audience members might be saying. Any other pointers for us you can pass along?
Bat ^o^ - Arno> JT planning on ever doind Dont Be Sad on tour?

Tee_ - One time in Great Woods we shussshed some people and thought they would come punch us out!!!
LYR - I could never see the audience when I was on stage--the lights obliter
sky helen people have blurred the line between 'performance' and 'product'.. no excuse for impoliteness in a live format, though

OAHassell - Arnold, does JT ever play "Highway Song" during the summer tour? I think that is a good touring song.
jojo - me too lyr
