    Six people whom I have played music with have passed away. It is a very hard thing to go through. Peace and goodwill.

    Many thanks to all of you guys.
    I found out about the loss of yet another friend just yesterday; not a musician, but a lover of music.

    Hey,we're supposed to be living well into our 70's these days.
    A lot of my old band mates didn't make it out of their early 50's/ 60's.
    Lifestyle habits like it or not ,do take a toll.
    Say what you want about the drug crisis,but most of my friends died early via tobacco and alcohol.
    Look at Phil Kenamore and Leonard Haze from Y&T.
    Lung cancer and COPD.
