  4. it's been a while

    Hi.......... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8q182kWAhiM
  5. Cool gift....

    I've had a lot of gifts given to me over the years at gigs. Drawings, Artwork, Moose slippers (really) , hats, bottles of liquor etc...among other things. This one is by far one of the cooler things ever.
  6. That's it, no more drumming for the rest of the year!!!

    Played 4 gigs in the last three days. A 4 hour show Friday, 2- Four hour shows Saturday, and went 8pm - 2am Last night. My hands are beat.... Lotion anyone?
  7. OLD's Christmas Video SIGNUP - 2017 - Get Involved!

    Thanks all.....and then the band got booked for two more gigs this weekend at the last minute.....making it 4 gigs in 3 days. I need a day off! On my way to play our NYE gig. Playing inside a corporate jet company hanger for a Private Charter Jet Company. This is a first for me. (for a paying gig anyway). I was in a band that rehearsed in a small airplane hanger at a small airport - but never "gigged" in one. It's always fun to play somewhere new....as I'd thought I'd played a gig in every type place/room possible.

    Thanks Everyone. It has been difficult.
  9. OLD's Christmas Video SIGNUP - 2017 - Get Involved!

    I'm sorry I was not able to contribute this year. Life has been crazy as of late. Besides the fact that I played 18 gigs in December...(most with my local band)...as many of you may or may not know, my Mom passed away in November. Her services were the week of Thanksgiving. Since then...I have been very busy with my Dad - keeping him "together", getting him squared away, taking him Christmas Shopping etc.....it's all been very difficult. My folks are my neighbors - and have been for quite some time now. We are very close. My Mom went in to the hospital for a fairly simple problem...and ended up spending 3 weeks in the Hospital. We thought she was going to be ok ...and were expecting to bring her home on a Wednesday, but she had some complications and quickly regressed. She passed away that Sunday. It was not surprising...she was 83, but it was not expected. On top of all this..... 1. My Car was broken into the day after my Mom died. 2. The Transmission in my Van blew up. 3. Two of my dogs got infected tooth abscesses. 4. My daughter got really sick...had tonsillitis, a sinus infection and bronchitis. 5. Oh and the Battery Died in my KIA...leaving my wife temporarily stranded. So....it's been crazy here in the desert....and my head is still spinning. I can't wait for the holidays to get over with....as it's been very difficult to be festive. Forgive me for the debbie-downer post. Life sucks right now.....I'll get over it....just need some time. Here's a photo of me and my Mom - it was the last time she got to hear me play.
  10. a topic with no topic

    That's what makes it easy to live in Phoenix when it's 100+ degrees. There's no humidity. It really does make a huge difference. I'll have the doors and windows open in my house when it's in the 90's. Very comfortable. In fact..my air conditioner is set to 80*. That seems hot to most, but when there's only 5% humidity. It feels like normal body temperature. Very comfortable.

I had so much stuff in my hair to keep it a mullet...ugh. Then....myself as a mad scientist on Halloween as I passed out candy.
