Joel - The plan is for approximately 30 minutes of moderated QandA, then I'll open up the gates and you'll be able to log in and talk to Arnold yourself.
Joel - In the meantime, be sure to try the "Hear It" link above.
Joel - We'll start the chat in a little over 15 minutes.

Joel - We'll start the chat in 10 minutes, folks.
Joel - Hi, Arnold. Almost ready to go?
Joel - While we're waiting for the top of the hour, be sure to click on "Hear It" at the top of your screen, folks. You'll get to hear Arnold's entire CD, "You Can't Go Back."
Joel - For those who're just arriving, in a few minutes we'll be starting our moderated chat with Arnold McCuller.
Joel - The first 30 minutes or so will be moderated, but after that you'll have an opportunity to log in and chat with Arnold yourself.
Joel - 5 minutes to go, folks.
arnold - ok, why can't I hear it?
arnold - I'm ready if you are
Joel - You may not have a recent version of RealPlayer installed. It requires the latest, which is the one called G2.
Joel - Okay. Just one announcement before we get started:
Joel - Our next big chat event will be on Monday, October 4 with Ian Halperin, author of the upcoming JT biography "Fire And Rain: The James Taylor Story."
Joel - Let's get started, Arnold.
Joel - We know you've been busy. How about giving us the run-down of what you've been doing all year in terms of touring.
arnold - can i install real audio now or is it too time consuming
Joel - I think that's probably a little too time-consuming for now, but I'll be happy to talk you through it later.
arnold - I mean realplayer
Joel - Arnold is a Mac user, folks. I know Mac-heads like to stick together.
arnold - am i on
Joel - Yep. I was hoping you'd tell us about all the touring you'd done this year.
arnold - I've been with JT in Europe and Lyle lovett (who lost his dad
Joel - We know that originally you weren't even going to be included in the European tour with JT. How'd that come about?
Joel - And what was it like singing backup for JT without the other singers?
arnold - I just talked James into it since we were both keen on doing two voices.
Joel - Do you think he liked how it went -- just your two voices on stage?
arnold - It's good without the others because I have more freedom, below and above james' voice
arnold - He's was thrilled. We're planning some others for the states.
Joel - How does singing with James differ from singing with Lyle Lovett, which you also did immediately after JT's tour?
arnold - James is a little less demanding, after 23 years. Lyle likes singing with me but is still not completely trusting
Joel - What's your favorite song to sing with James? With Lyle?
arnold - There is a feeling of wonderment that i can't explain with LL
arnold - I love doing the duet of Funny how Time slips away with Lyle, and I love Close your eyes with JT
Joel - Arnold's Official Web site is here, folks -
arnold - plug it baby
Joel - Have you been selling a lot of copies of You Can't Go Back at these shows?
Joel - You know it. ;)
arnold - Isn't he the best folks? Don't answer yet.
Joel laughs
arnold - I've been through about 3000 pieces. As they say.
Joel - You Can't Go Back is getting increasing airplay, I hear. How's that going?
Joel - And what should folks do if they want to hear it on their local stations?
arnold - Oh at the shows. Yea I sell well with JT when there is an intermission, and I always do well at my solo shows
Joel - Arnold has 4 solo shows coming up in the L.A. area, folks. You'll find details at his web site.
arnold - Thaey should let me know the call letters and I'll pass it on to the promo team. We're going for urban radio, right now. That's black music radio folks. Sorry it is that way in the States.
Joel - Does it work differently elsewhere? How about European radio?
arnold - Europe sees this record as strictly Jazz.
Joel - Is that a positive thing?
Joel - Folks often ask me what it would take to get you to do a live show in their area, Arnold. What's do you tell them?
arnold - They use a different cover and cd label. It's fine as long as they like it. In england that is who my audience is
arnold - to work outside the area I need lots of dough!!
Joel - I'll pass that on ;) Do you think you might be able to do more extensive solo touring eventually?
arnold - Band, flights hotels and the simple five star hotels.
arnold - If the record's airplay dictate it. Yes.
Joel - What markets are already playing your CD?
Joel - Also, if any of you would like to get notification of Arnold news and tour dates, be sure to sign up for the mailing list. There's more info at Arnold's site.
arnold - Milwalkee, some cities in Georgia, Phenoix, and mobile. Savannah too and maybe more I don't know them all by heart
Joel - We know you're not going to be involved in JT's upcoming symphonic tour, but you'll be at the much-anticipated New Year's show in North Carolina, right?
arnold - I expect to be doing it but I haven't been given any details yet. What do you guys know?
Joel - JT's management is notoriously tight-lipped, folks. Sometimes we find out about tour dates before Arnold and the other band members do.
Joel - Do you think you'll continue to sing and tour with JT in the future?
arnold - I am so sore! I've been training so hard. I get in better shape sometimes on the road. With all that unconstucted time.
Joel - Here's the link directly to info about Arnold's four upcoming Los Angeles-area shows:
Joel - Do you find yourself struggling to occupy your time when you're not on the road?
arnold - I plan to tour in the summer of 2000 for sure. I think he's got big plans for next year. With some big breaks but touring straight through the fall
Joel - A normal U.S. summer tour, you think?
Joel - The summer tour schedule was sorely missed by many folks, I think.
arnold - I have my solo work. Some sessions. Not as many as the old days. But enough, and I'm really committed to my relationship. Which as we all know takes time
Joel - Sounds like a song. ;)
arnold - Normal touring is relative with old Jamo!
Joel - Did you hear about his nomination for the Hall of Fame? Folks here were glad to hear about it. Maybe you'll be accompanying him to Cleveland next year.
arnold - Sounds like a particular song?
Joel - All of the ones about love. :)
arnold - No I haven't but I proud to. I know and feel in my heart that he deserves that and much more.
Joel - I think everyone here would agree with you about that.
Joel - And on that note, why don't we open up the floodgates.
Joel - Thanks so much for coming yet again and talking to us. We really do appreciate all you do for us fans, Arnold.
arnold - Speaking of love songs. What should I sing at a wedding ceremony Saturday. Accapella and simple.
Joel - In just a minute you'll be able to click "reload" or "refresh" and log in normally, folks.
Joel - I'll leave that open to the whole group. Let's see what they say. My vote would be There We Are.
Joel - I'm opening it up now. Thanks again, Arnold.

SuperDmacuser - ...and yes, Arnold...Joel is the best. Thanks again, Joel
Ro - whom do you like to listen to arnold?
Thing - So true, Supe.
helen - Arnold -- Lyle is playing the Albert Hall in a few weeks -- will you be there?
Jenn - I wasnt going to log on because I feared I will just embarrass myself by telling Arnold how buff he was when we met him over the summer ;)
rider - LOL@Jenn!
Zot - /laughs
corrie - If you leave it up to us Arnold we'll have you back on tour in no time. I'm sure you're thinking NNNNNNOOOOOOO!!!!
Thing - LOL@Jenn.
SuperDmacuser - Was glad to be seated on the side closest to you in CHICAGO a year ago, put on your own little show when you back up JT
willow - you managed to do it anyway Jenn
Joel - Arnold is the Hans and Franz of the music world -- without the accent. He's built like a brick studio.
brandi - LOL@willow !
helen - Eggs-actly!!!! Arnold if you come to London, we can fill a room!
arnold - Lyle cancelled the European tour because he just lost his father. A very good man. He toured with us and I spent some good times with him. He'll be missed
rider - good point SuperD!
RobinB - Arnold, I like your picture on the "Lyle Lovett Live in Texas" CD. I wish you were touring with him in Nov.!
Jenn - LOL@ Joel
fatfree! - he,s great and huge in Ireland check it out!!
rider - Studio? idontthinksooooo, brick house, brick warehouse! woooo
corrie - Please send condolensces to the Lovetts. Gosh, don't know them but the loss of a loved one is painful and hard
arnold - I hate that picture. But I must say James liked it too.
helen - Sorry to hear that, Arnold.
Joel - Just one more reminder that we'll have Ian Halperin the JT biographer here in the chat room on October 4 at the same time.
Jenn - actually, I think its brick sh@thouse.....
Ro - I know you are being slammed by ?s, but I am too curious, what artist(s) do you spend time listening to?
helen - Arnold, did you have fun at Tatton Park?
rider - LOL@Jenn (again)
fatfree! - has music made you a zillionair ARNOLD??
Sabi,Germany - It was funny, the gal from the newspaper totally missunderstood JT's and Arnold's stage banter, she thought Arnold was really mad at JT when he made some not so nice comment and Arnold came out to throttle him.
Thing - LOL@Jenn.
arnold - That's right Jenn!!! You got it girl!
SuperDmacuser - plug by Joel...plug by Joel...plug by Joel...plug by Joel...plug by Joel...plug by Joel...plug by Joel...
Tee - Helen there goes your solo of Arnold in London. Sorry about Lyle's loss
rider - hey Arnold, do you suppose that James may try to make an appearance at the Fleet Center in Boston next Thursday for thier Anniversary Gala????? (please please)
arnold - I did have fun in all the Euro dates
helen - Arnold, why did JT always call your album: You Can't Go Back, But You Can Go On?

arnold - No James has never gotten mad at me for anything I've ever done on stage. We play a lot!
helen - Well, Arnold, your presence made a HUGE difference!!!!!
Sabi,Germany - Arnold, did you get to see anything of Europe, too, or were you too busy? Any sightseeing?
Zot - Maybe you're just not trying hard enough, arnold!
Friend - Are you all still there?
arnold - He calls the record that to drive home the point. More jt humor
Tee - I totally agree with Helen A huge difference Arnold made to the JT shows in europe
Zot grins
SuperDmacuser - How many days a year are you on the road, Arnold?
rider - please do Jenn! any help for this small town New Hampshire ocean girlie would be much appreciated. i have asked all the folks i know at the Fleet, they won't talk
helen - I saw a couple of the shows in 98, without Arnold. And JT seemed MUCH HAPPIER having Arnold with him this year.
Jenn - so is the CD really available at hardware stores and filling stations or was that part of JT's joke? ;)
steam - have a God given talent, thanks for sharing it with us
fatfree! - arnold ,do you remember comming to Vancouver ,canada?? if so, did you like B.C??
arnold - I say more of Europe this time than ever before. I say Pisa, Florence and Bits of Rome.
Jenn - rider, I'll see what I can do ;)
arnold - Of course it's a joke

SuperDmacuser - Jenn, absolutely...I filled up the Suburban twice and got Arnold's CD for $1.99 and two coupon books
helen - I liked it when JT said it was available at all fine Ironmongers and Lingerie Shops in the civilized world and Canada (as a Canadian, I found that funny)
arnold - Of course he's happier with me. Wouldn't you be?
Jenn - LOL@ Supe...any Slim Jims?

corrie - I was saddened at the loss of Don Grolnick a couple years ago, I have a couple of his solo things in addition to his work with JT
willow - we all would be arnold, nothing like your solo's, :o)
Thing - LOL@Arnold.

RobinB - Arnold - isn't Clifford one of the nicest people on earth? That's how he comes across.... and he's cute too!
Sabi,Germany - Cliff did "music" with JT last year and did a great job. But of course his contribution to "shower the people was as elaborate as yours! :-)
secret - hey!!!
arnold - Phil Collins. I think enjoys my work but I feel a lot more like a hired hand than a friend. He's kind and generous but James and I have a bond.
fatfree! - Do most of the people you sing with read music ARNOLD??
Kasa - Hey secret!!
SuperDmacuser - Nice nickname, Darby...that IS jt....

secret - hi kasa!
Sabi,Germany - oops, wasn't I menat, boy, it's late..or early..
rider - oh a bond with James... *just the thought* (grin)
steam - do you have any formal music training Arnold or did you just stsrt singing?
SuperDmacuser - Hired hand or hired gun, Arnold? Worker bee or necesary part?
corrie - Hi, Ro, very heartfelt. My husband is a jazz nut and loved some of his solo stuff. Saw him with JT in 1994, unfortunatley Arnol;d was not on that tour. Got to see Arnold with Phil that year though and in '98 with JT
DDDDemolitionDarby - Supe....
helen - You and James look like you have a bond onstage, Arnold!
tk - (((((sammiches))))
rider - hey it's my Okie Sistah! ((((((((Tk))))))))
Thing - LOL@Supe!
SuperDmacuser - Bond, a James bond
Jenn - so Arnold - you told us last time that JT's blue shirt and brown pants are the same every night, but David Lasley told me he's got a closet full...who am I sposed to beleive?
arnold - Thanks Darby. God Bless. I think Clifford is one of the funniest guys I know. He's got a real dry slow sense that one can't help but love. He's married with child and trying for more ladies!
corrie - you can tell there is a closeness there, Arnold, the band is very tight
Sabi,Germany - waaaah, SUUP!!! good to see you again!
arnold - Believe David
corrie - or at least it comes across that way to the audience
Tee - There you go Helen...did you hear that???
Jenn - finally, a definitive answer to the brown trousers question! ;)
helen - LOL@Tee. Yes!
willow - yes, we saw his little girl backstage at London, very cute
rider - Jenn can rest now... NOT
Sabi,Germany - Arnold, I loved those 3/4 pants you wore in Belgium!! Or should is say 'trousers'??
Tee - Did you ever finish that lollipop in London Arnold?
Jenn - say trousers
Kasa - Either way, it's kinda wierd, Jenn. I vote for a more diverse wardrobe.
SuperDmacuser - 7 pair, Jenn...Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday....matching boxers, too
Sabi,Germany - LOL Jenn!
corrie - Don't know if you remember your Nashville concert last year, wanted to say sorry for the 102 degree temp you all played in. You are all sports !!!
helen - I loved Arnold's duet with Beth NC at Knutsford!
Tee - And how about the Aloha shirt in Hamburg Sabine...that was nice arnold
rider - boxers? he wears boxers? hmmm
arnold - You know that is not final. I know he owns repeats. But he repeats the same ones also. You figure it out.
Thing - LOL@rider. I think Jenn should be really happy she got a definitive answer.
SuperDmacuser - Knickers, Sabi
LadyAron - What is your favorite venue to play, Arnold??
fatfree! - if you had,ent sang for a living, what might have you done?? ARNOLD
Roo - logged on - Thu Sep 23 9:54pm ET - Mozilla/4.61 [en]C-AtHome0404 (Win98; I) helen - Arnold, did you enjoy those cashews in Paris?
rider - 3/4 pants? hummmmm what 1/4 was showing i wonder
arnold - BRIEFS!!
Jenn - arnold will NOT tell us if he knows that answer rider... I hope
SuperDmacuser - I am sure JT is a boxer man

arnold - My fav venue in Europe was in London. Albert Hall
Tee - No Arnold no what ifs for you and your talent...
Sabi,Germany - Do you have any say on the set list??? Do you sing with David Lasley apart from JT, or only together with JT? You seem to have a long history of singing together.
Jenn - hey Arnold did you ever notice that bass fish that Russ had hanging from his drums a few shows over the summer? That looked really cool up there.
helen - Night No. 2 at Albert Hall was phenomenal, Arnold!!!!!!
RobinB - What about a favorite American venue?

helen - Indoors is better!!! Sounds (applause, singing) reverberate!
SuperDmacuser - Albert Hall....made famous by JT, Arnold and that group of four guys who played this song called "A Day in the Life"...
Tee - You all sound better indoors....
Ro - thanks for spending time with us, we are big fans and I for one, buy your CDs and will continue to do so. Hope to catch you live sometime, solo, on east coast. goodnight.
RobinB - I'm with you - I like indoors - more comfortable temperature-wise.
arnold - The group of you that I saw through Europe were like a breath of fresh air everytime you'd show up! Jimmy felt the same way too.
helen - fatfree -- arnold was in Montreal in the Hourglass tour in 97
Sabi,Germany - That reminds me, Tee, I should scan in a pic for you from that night.
rider - so James must LOVE Tanglewood the mostest .... :o) being outdoors AND in Massachusetts.... right?

He called out to the people on the grass seats, "I love you guys", in '98 it was 10 degrees, no air and all humidity. Thanks for putting up with the terrible conditions

willow - thought maybe that was the case, a post repeating on you, hunh? LOL
LadyAron - talked about how you keep your physique in shape.....what about your voice?? Any special routines or exercises you use before a show or on a regular basis??

Sabi,Germany - LOL helen! I loved it when you did requests, like "copperline" in Frankfurt. although JT tried to avoid it by saying "arnold doesn't want us to do Copperline!"
helen - Arnold, who gets involved in choosing the set lists? Could someone suggest a rest for ....steamroller (helen respectfully asks?)
arnold - I warm up the voice 20 mins before singing any show anytime and it keeps it fit too!
Tee - Munich...then do a solo in Germany and Sabine will gather everyone around
helen - Munich? I could get to Munich.....
Sabi,Germany - YEP!!
willow - I like Steamroller
Walkingman - yeah repeating like indigestion willow
rider - ohhhhh Tarzan! you gonna yell and pound on your chest!?

arnold - No yelling, No pounding
Sabi,Germany - well, I could try to get some airplay going....
willow - take a Tums Walkingman
Tee - HAPA the Hawaiian group has been doing stemroller to close their concert
helen - Arnold, you just made my day(week/month) with that comment!!!!!

RobinB - How about "Knock on Wood"? I love how James and you guys sing that song! It's so much fun!
rider - darn... cuz a fine Tarzan you'd make :o)
magsmo - i would like to see a concert with all jt songs that have never before been sung in concert..........
helen - In fact, you guys closed the 1st set with Steamroller in Cardiff and "some drunk" was screaming for it in the encores! Doh!
Sabi,Germany - No Sweet Baby James in Duesseldorf was shocker, I have to say, I am immensely attached to that song. And no SBJ in Belgium either, that was a wild show though. John Hiatt afterwards was brilliant, too.
arnold - I'd appreciate the airplay if anyone can call radio and request it. But remember in the states we're targeting Urban Markets. Thanls
Tee - Besides that is what the guys come to listen to Helen...Steamroller
helen - ooh, I'll buy that guy's ticket from him, Tee! Just to give James and the band a break!
willow - that would be great mags, I agree

LadyAron - Hey there (((((((((((pip)))))))))))))
helen - When you and JT did You Can Close Your Eyes at the end of the concert at Tatton Park, I had tears in my eyes.
arnold - The set list done like this. We rehearse everything that's brought up and then we rehearse the hits. Sung like dylan. Then we make little cards and put them in various orders on the piano and run the orders.
Sabi,Germany - I think we'll always sit there and miss a song, he can't do them all, I was just thrilled this year he did "anywhere like heaven" and "blossom", gave me chills.

Pagernut - Hellooooo arnold from Florida
rider - Tee! hehehe
helen - Does James get tired of playing "the hits"? One (I) wonders how many times he can play Friend or Fire&Rain.
Thing - I would love to do that too, Tee.
- helen? what time is it there?
arnold - My favorit writer is James. That's why it's easy to do this so many times. I can't get enough of it either!
Michael - Blossom rules !
Thing - I think about that all the time, helen. Must get tiring.
Tee - Do you get tired of doing the same songs over and over Arnold?
magsmo - Helen..........i get tired of hearing them in concert, sorry...........but, i'd so much like to hear the obscure stuff.
arnold - Helen where are you?
helen - Arnold, you have excellent taste! (Di, the answer is VERY LATE)
Pagernut - Tee hee hee
Sabi,Germany - Di, it is mighty early over here, it is 4.45 am at my place!!
rider - i doubt it Tee, cuz we don't get tired of hearing them! :o)
Thing - Me too, mags. All the less known stuff.
helen - Arnold,, I live in London. England. Where it is very late now.
arnold - I get tired, but sometimes the old stuff gets me when I least expect it!

rider - when you lease expect it
ANGEL - that is cool to know, ARnold..cause this summer I saw three concerts in a row and was amazed at how you all stay so up repeating the music so often?!
Sabi,Germany - shananana shananan get a job, shananana shananan...
- LadyAron...that was scarey
helen - Arnold, James looked unexpectedly (or so I thought) moved by SBJ at the end of the Cardiff show. That must be nice -- when something you do so often still can grip your heart!

Pagernut - Who's singin' hootie
Thing - dipdipdipdipdipdipdip boomboomboomboom......get a job....LOL@Sabi.
ANGEL - need a turn , right?
Sabi,Germany - BIG wave back across the pond :-)
arnold - Every show, like theatre, is different and every night and every venue
Tee - James' lyrics are multi multi dimensional as opposed to linear...that a lot of songwriters do
rider - how is Ashville holding up JWarren? we're worried about you in the north here
helen - besides, it's such fun to be able to ask you questions and have you answer! I can sleep another time.
arnold - He'll listen to me. I think?

Joel - You're welcome to come chat anytime, Arnold, but I'll be asleep. ;)
LadyAron - Do you ever get stage fright, Arnold?? I have heard that even verteran performers still get it from time to time.
Sabi,Germany - do you know if Russ Kunkel is staying with the band now for a while??
ANGEL - hey, skillet!!!
NIKKI - I was in Asheville last weekend!
helen - Joel? Or James? Both, I hope!~
rider - get a haircut and get a real job... those are actual lyrics! hehe (ooops sorry Arnold, haircut... uh, er... ) *wink*
brandi - Arnold, do you know if JT has ever visited this chat room?
skillet - I almost missed it!

Tee - Lost that PM Michael....!
JWARREN - how did you like it,Nikki
RobinB - Arnold - do you ever listen to classical music? If so, do you have a favorite composer?
arnold - I'll tell him but you must know ther are a lot of fans friends and promoters to please
rider - good to hear JWarren... whew for that! you're lucky!
ANGEL - yea, you or JT ever visit here? and chat with us?
helen - who did you tell to get a job?
blue - I know he's out there.
magsmo - i'm sure there are arnold...........just a suggestion from a true fan
JWARREN - we actually need water here in Asheville

rider - screw the promoters Arnold, the fans are more important! ;o)
arnold - I lisen to Classical but I don't have a favorite composer. I love Arias and sing them often with my records
Michael - JT should do a song based on the Sullivan Ballou Civil War Letter. The Liv Taylor version just doesn't cut it. It would make a beautiful, haunting love ballad.
helen - we do know that, Arnold. But we think that the first time fans might settle for one or two of the MUST HAVES and be so thrilled with the obscure gems they won't notice they didn't hear Steamroller.
rider - Wilmington is beautiful!
Sabi,Germany - that reminds, me you were BRILLIANT on "wasn't that a mighty storm", loved it.
rider - hey! Steamroller is like water and air... can't live without it!
skillet - Poor guy. I bet he's thinking "What the hell have I gotten myself into?"
arnold - I should head off. I promised a friend I'd meet him for coffee. This has been great but my big hands have had it
NIKKI - Yeah, I love it here!
Pagernut - Hey throw me a peanut!!!!!
RobinB - I have to get going. Arnold, thank you for joining us tonight. You have a wonderful voice. Hope to see you soooooon...........
