HOLY ****! Has it really been a whole year that I have been neglecting you guys?? I must really pay more attention to this site! So anyway a whole year and what's going on? NOT MUCH! So you shouldn't feel bad about missing anything ~ ha ha. Well the band broke up...prolly about 8 months ago...you know the usual reasons (Jimmy quit, Joey got married) no I jest. But same basic kind of thing, two guys got transfered so that took care of that. The remaining guy and I get together once in a while, but as the song goes, he got married so it's not often. But we did have fun while it lasted so that was good.
Interesting side note here....I did get mail...I won't say hate mail, but it wasn't happy mail, from a guy in the military DEMANDING we change our DD-214 name because he has a band by that name in North Carolina or somewhere and he was rather offended that we infringe on HIS copyrighted name. To that I have to say that ONE we never recorded any songs or handed out fliers advertising us as DD-214, TWO all we did was play for our friends...in their backyards or at their neighbors house when they had a party, never getting paid I might add, and THREE we NEVER took the name DD-214 seriously. We were sitting around one day trying to come up with a name and our drunk neighbor walked by and said it and we all laughed it off but it kinda stuck for lack of anything better coming up. Certainly not a name we would use if we were to record anything because we have more respect for our non-job lives than to be that hard core about the military. Nuff said. Offensive if this guy comes back to read this? Maybe. Do I really care? Definitely not.
Anyway, I thought you would be as amused about it as I was.
So that's what is going on here lately, the band has...well, disbanded, work still sucks and if you were to come over you'd find guitar books strewn all about with me somewhere in the middle of it with a beer in hand.
Oh yeah, and I promise to check in more than once a year!
