Of being in a band, there's a rare magnificence in such camaraderie that's provided a splendor in these operations. A severe joy to be making this thing we eventually call a 'music' with all those that have peopled this posse along the way. Herein lies a soundtrack attached to said clustering where the workload provides the grand excuse for vital visitation. And no matter how subliminally encoded, it's also a time for us here scouting up ahead to report back to those in earshot, those who've not yet had the spoink of running into these eventualities, be it celebrational or confrontational. All those included here through the decades have made the journey worthwhile and something to cherish during this life lived between a kiss goodbye and the welcome home hug. None of it is easy except for the momentary spark within the eternal song.
And so after 30 years of attempting this thing, I thank you for your consideration, your allowance.. . and maybe more than that, your patience. From my heart to yours, thank you ...
It's been a severe pleasure.
