|When you play music with a group of people after a time they become your family. At least it's
that way with us and I have to tell you that it has been, (and is) an honor for me to be on the
same stage with these folks. As in the case with Kimmy and myself, we have been together
since the early 90's and she "IS" the sister I never had. I'd like to thank each of them for
putting up with me (and my Insanity, LOL) and hope only for the best to befall on them
in the future. Winning the lottery would also be a good thing! :) Doc
