Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?


There was this band I was in for couple of months, this was about a 100 years ago. I was a young punky drummer, they were into classic rock. It was a match made in hell. Only one of us could really play well, that was the bass player. He and I had a hate/hate relationship for many years. Then I started the job that I now work, and there he was out in the press room. We became friends finally. Jammed some together, talked music insessently, made fun of music insessently. So about 6 months ago he got the diagnosis. A few weeks ago, after it looked like he may beat it, he found that the cancer had spread to his brain. He died this weekend. He was a true character, funny, brilliant, one of the best bass players I ever knew. There are a lot of us who will miss him. RIP Randy Van Hosen
