Jack Tempchin gets peaceful easy VIP feeling at KAABOO
DEL MAR — Jack Tempchin is beyond delighted that the KAABOO Del Mar festival is just a 12-minute drive from his home in Encinitas.
“This is the greatest thing!” the veteran singer-songwriter said early Sunday evening, just before he launched into an infectious version of “Already Gone,” the 1974 Eagles’ hit that he co-wrote with Rob Strandlund.
“My friends were worried I wasn’t getting out to hear enough music,” Tempchin continued. “So they said: ‘How about having a giant music festival close to Jack’s house?’ “
He was kidding, of course.
