Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer? Ask if you do!
I fell asleep to “Rush” the album “Clockwork Angels”
I exercised to “Pink” the album “Hurts 2B Human”
The air conditioning is still not working, but I assume by Wednesday they should have the compressor for us, that’s what I’ve been told. I woke up at about 5:10 am on Monday. Exercised, had breakfast, emptied the dishwasher, Kim went to work & then I showered.
I spent my day from 10:00 am until Kim was off work (4:30 pm) packing my CDs from bigger boxes to filing boxes, in alphabetical order, all 600 or somewhere about there. 8 filing boxes, the final one is demos, masters, recorded portions of songs, & bands I’ve shared a stage with that never made it big. That’s how I kicked off the week, sitting on a hard laminate floor saying my alphabet as a mantra in my head.
Surprising how much work that was, I was very tired. That’s likely why I never really had a desire to have a desk job. Working as a printing press operator is the complete opposite of having a desk job. No break time, just have coffee or eat lunch when you can fit it in. I really grew to like that part of the job, 8 hours straight & you’re done!
Tuesday morning I got up at 6:30 am, did my exercises until 8:00 am, to go to my parents’ for breakfast around 9:15 am. Friends of the family had stayed over Monday night while passing through town. I can’t drive, please remember that I’ve been picked &/or dropped off by Kim, another family member or friend. They’ve all had to learn how to collapse my wheelchair & fit it into their vehicle. That’s why we have an SUV, for room in the back to fit my wheelchair in once it has been collapsed.
Got home close to 2:00 pm & had a visit with the folks at Apple Support. Took a while but problem solved in just around 1 hour & 20 minutes. I don’t care how long it takes Apple to fix my problem, I’m just happy they can get it done for me! I’ve got nowhere to go fast. I have no trouble talking with them & following their instructions.
I saw the other day on www.loudwire.com that “Slayer” was announcing their final tour? I thought they were on their final tour with “Lamb of God” as one of the openers? Wasn’t that part of the reason “Lamb of God” couldn’t fit in any time to write & record a new album?
New “Ed Sheeran” I out this Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whichever albums you like sir! Nobody has the right to tell YOU what music you should or shouldn’t listen to!? I don’t understand the concept of good or bad music, it’s obviously good enough for someone to create & something others must like or else you likely wouldn’t know about its existence. I listen to some “Green Day”.
There has to be a new “Big Wreck” album on the way. So far they’ve announced a tour beginning in September all the way through October in the Maritimes & America. I’m sure Brian’s health & death are/were a delay. They have released 2 standalone singles & one has a video. They also showed a clip of different video early last month or in late May.
I’m itching for an album & a tour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TAYLOR HAWKINS/TAYLOR HAWKINS & THE COATTAIL RIDERS/THE BIRDS OF SATAN
Taylor Hawkins, the 2nd drummer of “Foo Fighters” who joined the group to tour with them after the 2nd album was recorded. He was playing drums for Alanis Morissette behind her album “Jagged Little Pill” at the time. Dave Grohl saw him play at a festival. Taylor played/auditioned for “Foo Fighters” after Grohl told him ‘If you jam with us, you’re the guy, you’re in the band, and you have to join us.’ The rest is history, he’s been a Foo Fighter ever since.
He may be best known as the drummer for Foo Fighters, but he has many side projects, one of them as a drummer/singer in a cover band called “Chevy Metal”. The other 3 are listed above. I believe he sings & plays the drums in each group. He’s written a couple of Foo Fighters songs as well.
This is now pretty much a guarantee when seeing Foo Fighters live.

That’s Sir Paul McCartney on drums ^^!
