  • Hit the big six-oh today

    Born way back in 1953.

    A couple of things I've learned in 6 decades.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it is.

    If somebody says, "I don't want to criticize, but...", they want to criticize.

    If I pick up a guitar off the rack at the music store and I have to grunt to lift it, it's too heavy to have hanging around my neck for a four-hour gig, no matter how good it might sound.

    I pretty much sound the same on a cheap guitar as I do on an expensive one.

    My lead guitar playing will never be very flashy, but it gets the job done. I like to tell people I only know two licks, but I can play the hell out of them.

    What other people think about me is not my business. I stole that one from Michael J. Fox.

    Congratulations! It's better than the other thing.


    The 60's were great for me. Yes, both the 1960s and my 6th decade.


    By the way, I admire your act!

      Being a fellow 1953 baby, I am staring down the barrel of that same gun...but I have plenty of time until December

      Happy 60th, Mike, and many more...we should get together sometime and hang out, or play...or something...since I am also a man of leisure, at least for the moment...before you move East.

    I turn 61 Friday week.

    What blows me away is how fast the year has gone.

    Seems it was only last week I was counting down to 60.

    60 is a big one. Congrats.

      I've got four years on you but my woman is still here, most of my kids still love me, and I can still get my hands around the neck of a guitar so all is well. Happy birthday to you.

      Hello. Cherri. I've missed your posts. I'm still performing "Cold Pizza , Warm Beer" at my rock and roll gigs.
