Yet another friend of mine just died of lung cancer. HE DIDN'T SMOKE. Neither did the others or they quit many, many years ago. This friend of mine ran 5 miles a day, everyday, for the past 20 years. What they all had in common is a lifetime of playing in smokey night clubs 7 nites a week for 30 to 40 years. we were all going to die young and leave a pretty corpse. It doesn't work like that. If like me you are or were a working musician over 50, GET ANNUAL CHECK UPS. that stuff they told us about 2nd hand smoke? it turns out it's true. It sucks to die. There is nothing romantic about it. PSA ended. Go about your business.
