It's been a good ride so far!
Since I was just a kid all I have ever wanted to do was to make people laugh or just smile. As a child, an educator sent a note home to my parents. It read; If your son thinks he is going to get through life making people laugh he is in for a RUDE AWAKENING! He is not living up to his potential. WELL, I'M STILL NOT! But at this site you will at least see me try. From the heart, thank you for even being interested, it means the world to me. I always say, I have not a single fan but many a friend!

NO BIGGER COMPLIMENT!
In this case though, what I am speaking of put a joyous smile on my face! I believe that the universe puts people in our paths for a reason and what we decide to do in that moment forever changes the course of our lives. Some of these choices bring us much joy and some of them bring us much heartache, but nobody gets them right all the time, so I say go ahead and make those choices because normally the good outweighs the bad. I walk in the main bar at the Broken Spoke Campground and I immediately begin to see so many familiar faces and my heart warms a bit. These are all people that I had the great honor to work with last year or to meet on the road at other events, good people! Each of them walk across the floor to shake my hand or hug me and tell me how great it is to see me again and I am touched to the core. Here I am thinking that this can't get any better, I am bubbling over with good vibes! I hear my name called and I turn around and I get a smile from ear to ear! What greater honor can there be than when the band that has shown up to perform, have shown up wearing I KNOW JACK SHIT t shirts? If you want to speak of an experience that humbles you, this was one of them! I don't believe a bigger compliment could have been paid to me!
For all of those that welcomed me back to the Broken Spoke I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. It was an honor and a privilege for me to work side by side with you and I look forward to doing it again, perhaps more than I look forward to any gig!
Jay Allen, you had the faith in me to watch over your baby while you worked your ass off down town at the Original Broken Spoke Saloon and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity that you afforded me! You sir are nothing but class and I applaud you for it! As I type this, you are hopefully breaking yet another land speed record up on the Salt of Bonneville and I wish you nothing but greatness! Until we all see each other again at the Spoke, I wish you all nothing but the same feeling of joy and happiness that I got to experience these past few weeks.
Until we see each other on the road,
Keep the wind in your face,
Tits in your back
and The Man off your ass!
