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

  • So, what's going on this weekend?

    It's gonna be a weekend! Chicago Friday night, Champaign Saturday night. The Peoples Church of Chicago 941 W Lawrence Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60640…

    Two shows, no waiting. We stormed through both of them. The new songs are finally figuring out who they are onstage. Music Room Show Persephone…

  • So yeah, that thing

    I am on DW, same name as here. I will, as I have done for months now, post there and have it drift over here.
