With my broken finger still healing, I've taken to the guitar to explore some favorite songs from my childhood. Here is The Smashing Pumpkins classic from '95, 'Galapagos' - quite a challenge for me, enjoy!

I agree, this record is a pretty uninventive but this is by far the most creative track on it - if only for the unique time signature and feel. So strange to hear a Pumpkin record with no epic track, or even a track over 4 minutes!  Trying to withhold judgment till I hear the follow-up as I think they are meant to be heard more as a double album.

An acoustic solo version of 'Unruddered' at The Delancey in NYC, rather nice if I may say so: http://youtu.be/-9IPYwPrk_Q

A new song I'm working on for my next record, it will be a much more acoustic, singer/songwriter style with more emphasis on lyrics and sentiment: http://brettgleason.com

Ten years after being diagnosed, I came out as bi-polar:

Now with the clarity of time, I look back on why I struggled with the decision to take the drugs that have helped me so much?

My latest article on +The Huffington Post

Some of my friends brag about how little sleep they get, as if depriving oneself of the ability to function fully is something to be proud of. Perhaps I could survive without my meds, but would I have been able to graduate college? I don't just want ...
