Tonight's Overtime gig at the Boavista Pub in Newark has been cancelled due to an illness in the family.
Hopefully, we'll book another date there sometime soon to make this up to you all.
Also, a BIG thanks go to Mark and especially T.J. Donohue from Giant Space Robots for helping oput last night!
T.J. filled in for Danny on drums last night and performed Yeoman's duty, playing all night long! His brother MArk hung out for a while and sang a couple of blistering versions of Cheap Trick's "Surrender" and the Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman".
Again, thanks to them both for helping out the band during a rough stretch.
Which brings me to this. Danny missed the two gigs this weekend because of a severe illness in his family. Please, if you are so inclined, send out a prayer or a good thought or some good mojo to him and his family in this dark hour for them.
Blair and Lee's thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Dan.
Happy birthday my friend!

I Forsee One HELL Of A Battle Of The Bands...
Some of you may or may not know that Stone Temple Pilots (STP) broke up in November.
The reason why is believed to be singer Scott Weiland's new side project, Velvet Revolver, a super group made up of Weiland, guitarist Slash (of Guns N' Roses fame), bassist Duff McKagan (Also of GNR) and drummer Matt Sorum (of The Cult and GNR for a time).
So this leaves the other three guys in STP out in the cold, al la Rage Against The Machine after Zach De La Rocha quite.
So what do they do? They call up Izzy Stradlin (formerly of GNR AS WELL) and singer Chris Robinson (formerly of the Black Crowes) and have put together their OWN super group.
Man, would I LOVE to see a double bill of these two acts, both of which will likely sell better than Guns N' Roses new album.
BECAUSE IT'S NEVER GONNA COME OUT AND AXL ROSE SUCKS!!!
Me, I'm happy to have two news bands I'll almost DEFINITELY like coming out.
Peace in the Middle East

So here I have been thinking no one has been here for the last half year, as it shows that I have no comments on any of my posts.
Apparently, even though the thingy reads "Comments 0", there really ARE comments there anyways!
SO I just had a 6 month reading frenzy.
Sorry if I didn't respond to your comments.
Oh, and to that asshole from October 17th? Yer just a bitter frikkin BoSox fan, jerkboy.
I only watch the playoffs?
Dude, I LIVE for Yankee baseball. I am JONESING for Spring Training. I read all the hot stove stuff like a FIEND.
So, say it with me now... Nine-Teen-Eight-Teen!
Siddown and shuddup, junior.
(Hee Hee Hee!)
Oh, and BTW, your SS is gonna look AWFUL fetching playing 3B for the Yankees in 2005.
