.I don't think I shared this. Had a relative of my biz partner come in about 11 days ago... Long story short, Went and got tested day before yesterday..... Wife and I... Both negative, thankfully. (J&J vax in May)
Gotta go back in a couple of weeks for my long overdue wellness check....all kinds of tests that I detest....
Be great to be back to playing out again!
I had the J&J one & done vax but am thinking about getting a booster, just to be on the safe side of this shit... I read where the booster can jack up the resistance by a factor of 8X.... Sooner or later, we'll play out again and I want every edge I can have against the Shit.......
We ain't spring chickens anymore.... We need every edge we can have....
Congrats on the gig. Glad to see buds out playing again....
.Our bass player resigned from the band yesterday.
We had 3 gigs last week. Last Thursday, he fainted, so we had to use a dep for the three gigs.
It's not the first time he had fainted. He had fainted 3 times previously at gigs. The medics were at a loss to find out what it was exactly, but eventually he was fitted with a pacemaker and was on several meds. We thought he was through it all, then he fainted again.
With typical band 'gallows humour', he fainted at a FUNERAL inside a CHURCH. He said when he came round, waiting for the ambulance, the undertaker was standing over him, and said 'I'll get the chalk and the tape measure!' The Reverend who had been conducting the ceremony was holding his hand and said 'I'll pray for you, my son'. Only the Cruisers!
He was checked over at the hospital, and sent home the following day. We had a chat at rehearsal with him yesterday, and then he discussed it with his wife and decided further gigging was not the way to go.
So thanks for everything Eric, you are a diamond. You will always be part of the 'Cruiser family'.

And fooling around at an outdoor gig between numbers - hanging my coat on his head when it became too hot to wear!

Thanks for everything, Eric. It's been a blast working with you these last four and a half years.
C-Diff - been there, done that - and yeah, you don't want to go see him. Highly contagious and horrible.But at least I'm doing WAY better than my housebound guitar buddy Bill,
who texted me today to say he's in the hospital recovering from a heart attack,
and fighting various nasty infections, including c.difficile (the Splort Virus... horrible stuff
No visitors allowed, he sez, otherwise I'd be over there boring him with bad jokes.
If any of you could see fit to beam him some good juju, I'd be most grateful.
