In December?? Well, I think the new year has given me some breathing room...
Was 2016 the year of death or what? Yeah, everybody dies, but so many that actually mean something to me? Playing guitar and knowing somebody through
their music feels like you know them.
Joy Division/New Order and this band (and punk) was the music that led me out of the prog rock era and back towards mainstream just in time for "new
wave." It would not be until after all of that was done that I learned some Zep.
Playing synth notes on distorted guitar forced me to approach guitar differently than all the other local bands. For that I am grateful! The influence
will always be there no matter what I do now. That is a salute of honor!!
RIP, Mr. Steinbachek! Thank you for the music.
