A Major Bummer
Does this merry-go-round ever slow down? I read in the paper that my friend, Doug Smith died. He was a d.j., a tour manager, a promoter, and I worked with him at City Hall Records for a brief time in 1999 (he lasted there I think, 4 weeks). Anyway, Doug was coming back from the Russian River Blues Festival and wiped out on his motorcycle. RIP Doug.
A Minor High
Comcast came by and installed a DVR machine. I can now record my soaps again and even better, I don't have to have the TV on to do so. Stupid digital TV system did not allow me to program ahead and just tape... God forbid. I think they finally worked out that kink but by that time, my VCR was shot
And Another Bummer
Chet Helms had a stroke. I hope he is okay and that he has a full and speedy recovery.
Perhaps I better be nicer to my friends, they are dropping like flies.
