Some bands want to be on the cover of Rolling Stone. Some people want to be on the cover of GQ. Growing up I always thought the Linking Ring would be the cool cover to be on. The International Brotherhood of Magicians magazine, The Linking Ring, has been in publication since 1922. I’ve been reading it forever. Every magician I ever respected as I grew up has been on the cover, and had the feature story.
In the time of Covid and world affairs being what they are, nothing could be anything less important. I know that. To me though it’s super important. HUGE and massive thanks to everyone who helped collaborate on the parade. For non magicians the parade is the section of the magazine where tricks are published. Usually the parade is a collection of magic effects by the person on the cover.
Details of the Magazine
This month was a tribute parade. As mentioned in the article. I owe all the great things in my career to friends helping get the things I’ve wanted. What better way than to have friends contribute their effects to the parade, so we all shine a bit. This month it was filled with awesome contributions. Gifts from Jeff & Tessa Evason, Michael Close, Jay Sankey, Brian Roberts, Anthony Lindan & David Peck, were amazing. As with most things in my career, couldn’t have done it without you guys. A hat tip and big thanks to all of you. Additionally, Shawn Farquhar, Alex Zander and Sammy Smith for helping put a skip in my stride today.
THANKS AGAIN !
Sometimes things work out, and this was really a fun thing to do. David Peck wrote the article and Photographer David Leyes ( photographer to the stars… lol ) shot the cover pic. All around a great experience and I can’t thank the IBM enough for having me in the magazine…. Truly appreciated.
Until I see you on stage or in print,
Good Night and Good Luck,
