    Believe it or not, it's not as painful as it looks. I expected a lot more pain. They give you a heart shaped pillow (true) to hold against your chest when you cough. I didn't the 1st time I coughed and it hurt like a *********************************** the lesson was learned.

    How I feel 5 years later is better explained this way: They told me that in 1 year, 2 at the outside, I would have had a massive heart attack, so when I look at it that way, I feel fine.

    Thanks for asking GP, I appreciate it.

    I know exactly who you are Fred. You're the guy that bought up all the kazoos in the country.

    I'm not senile getting yesterday, but 1 knows senility never happens when you don't remember that you have it (or are it).

    I'm getting a flerken, I have a neighbor who, while he doesn't live next to me, is a pain in my a$$.

    What has spit and vinegar have to do with.............................................. ................................I forgot.

    Jesus Christ Rick! Of all these guys on the drum forums I talk to, when I think of you I say "that's my kind of guy". Time is slippery and it gets away from you fast. Steady on my salty friend. And it's piss and vinegar!

    Time IS slippery. I feel like I got on a luge and slid past about 30 years.

    So you're the 1.

    I think I'm the oldest guy on this forum. I must be doing OK because Tom, the Grim Banner, has yet to ban me. HI TOM J/K

    I can remember the first time Rick told us here that he would be having that procedure................can't believe it has been five years.
    I have another friend that went into emergency triple bypass surgery at only 38 years of age -- he is now 66 and doing well.
    Sometimes the doctors get it right.

    Thanks Ricky. I put that pic up to remind people not to take anything for granted. I was feeling great and, as I found out, that doesn't mean anything.

    So time for another warning: GO GET CHECKED, I DON'T CARE HOW GOOD YOU FEEL, GO GET YOUR *** CHECKED!!!!!!!!!

    They always look bad the 1st couple of weeks. Now, when I look in the mirror, I have to take few seconds to find the scar (I'm being dead serious) it's a little white line that you can barely see, and I know where the damn thing is.

    So it's a sense of humor that I have. I thought I was always being sarcastic. How far have I fallen.

    Well as a young drummer I was greatly influenced by the Music of Rush and drumming of Neil Peart. There's the NP.
    And here is the YYZ one of their songs.
    https://youtu.be/LdpMpfp-J_I

    I used to be one of those guys that thought Neil was the best there is. As I got older i realized there is no "Best" there will always be someone doing something new and creative that will make you pause and say, wow that was nice. Most of the drummers I listen to daily while I'm at work painting houses can play circles around Peart , but he was there when I was learning how to play , and I learned a lot from him , so he gets the nod.
