It's been a week of laughter and story telling and drinking my ass off. From different people, places and faraway cities, I've been hearing various amusing antidotes about my ex-band mates. I'd tell you some of the funnier ones, but I don't want anyone (male or female) to phone me and threaten to beat me up again. I've been laughing too much this week as it is. I have a great reason for not going to the Supersuckers show on Wednesday... the reason why is that Senor Pitt had stopped by my house to say goodbye to me. He's moving to Philadelphia, and I am bummed. Not because he's moving, but because we didn't get to spend more time together in these past few months because of all the Jesse/Roxie drama. He seemed a lot happier, and the way he was talking about Beth and the city in general has me thinking this is the best thing for him. Me and Pitt were always the closest in the band. In San Francisco, when everyone was in a bad mood, me and him hung out and walked around and ate lunch and just had a great time by ourselves. Pitt was the one who would drunkenly tell me on tour about how great Guns 'N' Roses were and how they influenced his life, knowing damn well that I HATE that band. And he would usually tell me this shit when I was trying to get some sleep! Pitt was my drinking partner. Those photos on the opening page were taken in the green room of the Huntridge when me and him lost our minds on drink and drugs. It's one of many great times we had. Me and Pitt always ended the night/morning of the Tour together having a last smoke and drink, talking and laughing about what a great time we were having and how lucky we were to be touring. It was me and Pitt who had Tony and Hank laughing and not worrying about a thing when Roxie was acting like a psycho bitch in Livermore. It was me and Pitt who would play covers of classic punk songs when no one else wanted to practice anymore. It was me and Pitt who would write songs that The Loud Pipes never wanted to play, but we knew them like the back of our hands. Yeah man... lots of good memories. I'm glad he stopped by before he left and that we had a great time together. He had such a great time at my house that he ended up passing out in the van! LOL I'm gonna miss that ugly bastard, but I promised to stop by and see him on my way to Europe in a few months. Anyways, I gave the whole website a new look, thanks to Debra's input and influence. I gave the Links page a new look, updated the Gig Listings page, and put absolutely NOTHING new on here. What a deal. And remember Pitt... there's no word in the Indian language for the word good bye. What we say is... until we meet again...
