Well, my year of retirement was good and now maybe I will un-retire a little bit. My autobiography was finished in its current state with the help of Jane Ganahl, but was not wanted by a few publishers or me for that matter so I will regroup and maybe work on it some more or not. I am thinking of 2015 which will be the 50th anniversary of my beginning to make albums and I know this is 2014. I think I might make another album this year even though the last year's Time Flies By album was not much of a hit but very much enjoyed by me. So look here for further news ... or don't. Happy New Year!
-- Joe McDonald, January 1, 2014

Update: New York book agent Bob Mecoy has shown interest in helping me with my memoir and after some work we plan to submit proposals to publishers this summer. Alec Palao, Bill Belmont and I are going to put together a boxed set of Country Joe stuff from Goodbye Blues to Time Flies By to submit to record companies for release next year to celebrate my 50th year in show biz.

o On Wednesday, July 30 I'll play two sets at the Sonoma County Fair in Santa Rosa, California.

o The "Heroes of Woodstock" (Jefferson Starship, Canned Heat, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and me) return on Saturday, August 16 at Hoberg's Club Resort in Cobb, California, up in beautiful Lake County.
o On Friday, August 22 I will be doing a benefit for Earth Island Institute with local singer songwriter Bob Reid in the wonderful little theater in the David Brower Center in Berkeley.

o As a benefit for the Whistlestop senior center, they're throwing “Whistlestock” at Rancho Nicasio, California on Sunday, September 28th. Admission price includes an afternoon of games on the lawn, mesquite BBQ cooked on an outdoor grill and a groovy lineup of musicians, including: me, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Peter Kaukonen from Jefferson Airplane, It’s a Beautiful Day Band, Sopwith Camel, and Ace of Cups.

o I will be in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, Mexico on Thursday, October 9 at Boomer Fest Days. Their motto: "Music that defined a generation and created a culture that changed the world."
