I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “There is Nothing Left to Lose”, followed by “Foo Fighters” the album “Sonic Highways”, & finally “Judah & the Lion” the album “Folk, Hop n’ Roll”
Don’t feel as though you need to open every link.
Sorry but I desperately want to kick my sciatic nerve and get “Physical”. I wake up, get ready for the day, have breakfast, & then it’s usually around 8:30 am & my day is done for the most part other than trying surprise Kim with something.
No, I don’t surprise her very often? She deserves it though. I was so close to being paralyzed at first. I was the corps in a bag (Hoyer lift) with Kim. I had a bigger wheelchair initially since I was around 275lbs. I’m a large person. I’m 6’1” and around 235 pounds. Still some weight to go, 215 pounds should be pretty close to what I should be at. I have no intent in stopping my exercise until I’m able to do most things! You heard it here first! My goal from the day I was conscious was to be able to walk or I’m gonna die trying!
How on earth do you put together a greatest hits album of Bryan Adams without “Cuts like a Knife”? I think iTunes made me go shopping when I bought it.

Chevelle tour dates
New Barenaked Ladies release April 14th. Presale begins this Friday, March 10th
A misunderstanding of most people who know metal fans! This goes for fans & bands.
Does this mean Jay Z is to be considered a member of “Shark Tank” or “Dragons Den”?
News regarding the reunion of the band LIVE, they’re not playing anything from their most popular album, Throwing Copper? I hope I read that wrong?
Soundgarden is done their album preorder begins this Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tom Hanks & Meryl Streep team up for a movie directed by Stephen Spielberg.
Those will leave a mark!
That’s why you keep an eye out just in case. This is why spinning your guitar isn’t always the best idea.
I sit here brain cancer free & whine about my nerve while this kid is fighting leukemia. Who do you think has it worse? Can everyone chip in & help this kid out?
Punk fans listen up! Rancid & The Dropkick Murphy’s are heading out on tour together!
Old song, sorry.
I may have sang in multiple rock bands, but I wasn’t anything to write home about. I was more of “the best of what’s around”. I was good enough. I had spent 3 years in the high school choir, but I had to change my register from singing low bass to a tenor voice or else I was headed in the direction of sounding like Scott Stapp of “Creed”. I got my first guitar for my 21 birthday that was a tremendous boost of confidence for me, something to hide behind. I heard 2 good things said about my voice.
Yes, we played Creed in my first band. Remember this was in 2001. The first thing I heard was that a friend of our drummer thought I had been replaced as the singer. A few months before I got sick, I was singing in my brother’s group. Our bass player went to the piano to figure out what note I had hit in a new song we were working on. High C#. I knew it was near the top of my range, but that was way up there. I remember seeing a contestant on ‘American Idol’ hit the same note full voice. Other than that, I’d never survive on ‘American Idol’.
Music is what keeps me going! I started singing in a cover band in University back in 1999 or probably 2000? I was far more nervous than before I learned guitar after my birthday in 2001. In total we learned around 35 cover songs, & 7 original songs. I wrote 3 & our guitar player wrote 4. I managed to memorize all of the lyrics to the songs we were preforming. I’ll leave you with 3 or 4 at the end here every day.
We played this at punk speed, just the first verse. Very quick version!
