Am I "rusty?".No.Am I confident ? ALWAYS. There was a time when I would drink HEAVY before gigs to "kill nerves." I actually gave a HUFF back then,this was in the early 90's,

" OK ,I can DESTROY every band on the bill,get some bigger gigs.....then Nirvana will fall...

I was obsessed with Nirvana. I knew I had just as much talent and pain as Kurt,just give me a chance.

NO GO! My drummer started "blowing off" practices. He wanted to go camping with his "frigid" gal,no SEX camping instead of world domination,?
Kurt then ruined EVERYTHING! How could I win THE BELT from a dead man?

OLD FEZZIWIG mk 1 "died" several months later.I went into RETIREMENT
/////////////////////////

13 years later=2007 I had my "comeback".It was a soiled diaper. I had a eager bassist, Tommy Flop ,but,my 21 year old drummer had a drug problem.We played 5 gigs,the last one was GREAT,played a Wounded Warrior gig with ex A's band =The Peace Creeps,of Woman's Got the Power fame.I played my 80 LP STD. We were HOT. Peace Creeps LOVED us,so did the crowd......then....drummer OD'ed at our next practice....he lived...OLD FEZZ mk 2 DIED!

Rrrrrrrrringgggggggg
"FEZZ?"
"I used to be."
"Tommy Flop,I need FEZZ."
"Holy Fluff,you are alive?I thought you died?"
Tommy Flop is sick,been dying for the last 20 years.

So,we got a MEAN drummer ,we easily won the FEZZBELT . We have held the title for 6 years now?Bruno Sammartino who?

Saturday we will retain FEZZBELT again. I now have a "stunt guitarist",Chris Narcos to add MORE,I also have a bagpiper coming down to play Amazing Grace to open the show and join us later on RoLLERBALL KING.It is a Memorial Show for the GREAT TOMMY SCARS who died recently.TOMMY actually won a "fake," FEZZBELT , great kid RIP

I will plug in my PUFF PAGE DRAGON TELE straight into my new Black Magick Supro.I will be the 34th best guitarist in the cosmos.I will drive home down I95 STILL the CHAMP..................not bad for a " washed up" 55 year old "damage case".........my talent will NEVER die.......

Have someone follow you (clips of preparing, going, getting there, backstage, on stage, etc.) with a proper camera
or high definition cell phone.
It's gonna be the "biggerest" !

Bobby, I will try. We actually have a BIG gig in Oct in Philly at The Fire playing with The End AD and some other "BIG" bands. We are the "JOKE BAND"-Old Fisterbag?-little do they know that I'm going OVER. I should be playing on Cruises withPoison and Warrant-instead putting us on a bill with? SHEEEEEETTTT. I'm hiring a cameraman for this gig-watch the eggs smear on their faces=interviews, Whole show in Hi-Def---be as good as The Last Waltz.......it will? HELL YEAH!

I feel like I probably only understood about 40% of this post... but I also feel like it was awesome for some reason I can't quite explain and I read it twice just because.
