Coming up on 3 years now one of my best friends that was with my long time band passed away. Kinna took it hard. Not a player but ran our lighting and handled our load in load outs. Probably around 1000+ gigs since 2001 from bars and field days thru trying to push our cd doing openers at better venues.After many shows we would stay up all hours usually at the drummers house were we would bring the trailer,Wed all talk band and the next step of the band.I never drank while I played but afterward it was game on back then we wouldn't head home till long past sun up. Lots of good times lots of fun memories . He passed of a heart attack at 49. Had a dream a couple nights ago we were in some building talking about electrical and plumbing(also did some contractor work on side with him)....vivid as shit....been thinking allot since then.....all the show's we did......the he'll we raised.....freezing in the cube truck......the family...miss my brother.
