    I once had a smoke with Martin Mendez from Opeth.

    In 1983 I was thirteen years old, and I learned to drive in a 1969 Jeepster Commando that had been in a rollover accident, had a pressure clutch and the synchronizer rings were shot. I weighed 90 pounds (soaking wet) and it took all my power to push that clutch to the floor.

    Dad said, “If you can drive this, you can drive anything.”
    ——————————————————

    I’ve been married for 27 years, sober for 22 years and a dad for 19 years...those are my three greatest accomplishments.

    I learned to ride a motorcycle in an off-base Navy parking lot by slowly tipping over and slowly running into parked cars and fences until I didn't anymore.

    I touched the Liberty Bell when I was a kid.

    I once fell off a cliff - a pretty big cliff - spun around in the air, and landed, quite by luck, curled up in a ball, feet first, into a huge soft bush that was surrounded by boulders. The people I was with were shocked - and spooked - to see me alive, much less walking away.

    Being a “music store guy”, I have had the opportunity to play a few iconic guitars.
    I have played Willie’s Trigger twice, SRV’s #1 (unplugged), Albert Collins’ Tele (unplugged), and Eric Johnson’s Virginia.
    I actually had Virginia in my possession for a few months in 1977.
    Eric borrowed my 1968 Les Paul, and I borrowed Virginia.
    Virginia was missing her middle pickup at the time.
    Scout’s honor!
    I was a Cub, and Boy Scout.

    I was once dating three members of the varsity cheerleading squad from my high school.
    And they all knew about it.

    True story. :cool:

    I'd be a real star if there werent so many other more popular famous people around! :twisted:

    I learned how to drive a stick shift in the last 6 hours of a 12 hour trip. The guy driving who owned the car said "I'm shot, either you drive or we pull over so I can sleep."
    I said "OK, it's your clutch, I'll drive". He slept the rest of the way to Boston.
    By the time we got to the Charles river I was pretty good at it.

    We got married by Elvis in Las Vegas-
    It was cool going to city hall at 11:00pm at night (our flight in was delayed) and filling out the marriage license application with golf pencils!! :cool:

    Years earlier, a girlfriend and I got “busy” in the shrubs next to the Massachusetts State House in Boston. Paul Revere laid the cornerstone of that state capital building...
