"Hey la hey" has worked its way into a few songs as lyrics, its own song and album title, but what is the origin of the phrase? Or should I save the question for your next "Storytellers" show?

Its just an incantation is all........it means everything and nothing all at the same time

Q

Hey Michael, what was your first guitar, what is your favorite guitar, and what guitar do you use most to write with plus do you prefer electric or acoustic?

First guitar was a Peavy T 60.......my favorite guitar is my Gibson acoustic......i have a few guitars out at all times around the house.....so its an old resonator guitar, the gibson and my takamine from the Surf album....the closest one is usually the one i grab when i gotta go write something.....
Thanks Ray!!
