Happy Birthday, John!

Did I miss it, or have we almost let today go by without wishing our own John Spen (JPSpen) a happy birthday?

Happy birthday, John!

Re: Happy Birthday, John!

Thanks guys....What a birthday.....

Details as I remember them.... ( Or as I hear the stories ).

We played Saturday nite and everyone had a good time...
I went as Achmed the dead terrorist..
All nite long it was........SILENCE!!!........I Kill You...

The crowd tried to play drown the drummer...I kept slipping the other guys in the band shots of Tequilla and I do believe they were in worse shape than me at the end of the night. But, being the one in charge of the time I just can't afford to get wasted...

Lindy got me a tire changing rig for the shop.....Check that one off the list...

Sunday I got to thinking about how I've lived my life and all the things I've gotten to see and do...
I started playing in bands when I was fifteen and my dad had to take me to the gig...
He liked that cause he got my "share" of the bands drinking....
I've been all over this country and Canada. Seen the Mountains and the big ditch. Been to Jamaica and played for the King..
Toured with a large venue band and for that five years I didn't even have a home....
Had girlfriends in every city on our circuit and did some pretty crazy fun stuff...
Been treated like royalty and like dirt...

So I guess I can take a line from my buddy Joe Walsh..

"Life's been good to me so far"..............

With the exception of my wife and one blonde nurse that I met at the Grizzly Rose in Denver,
Texas girls are the best........

Very grateful for all my friends and the talent that I somehow managed to turn into a life.
