It's really a 21st century Fan Club. We have a couple of different levels - Basic, First In Line, and All Access. All-Access means just that - access to ALL content anytime, anywhere for only $6.99 per month. Patreon Members are my inner circle, and my page is like our own virtual campfire where we can hang together and enjoy the party.
There's a lot on my Patreon page that you will never see or hear on other platforms like Facebook or YouTube. I save a lot of the best stuff for Members, and below you'll find a partial list and links to many high-profile posts like the first Keel show ever...the Black Sabbath demo...exclusive music videos like "Just Like Tennessee" and "Three Chord Drinkin' Song" and lots more.
Texts, emails, Facebook messages (from both the profile and the page), Twitter messages...I get about 700 a day. But with Patreon you've always got direct access to me via Patreon messaging - those always go to the front of the line.
