Entertaining and/or music'll keep you alive long after most things would have killed you -- but sooner or later, the other stuff you do while you're entertaining or playing music , or the things you do to fill the spaces between the notes & performances, catches up with you

Too true. There simply isn't the time to do drugs on stage.

I think I should also mention I had a dream about this game, only Bailey was a woman...

I assure you, that incident in Singapore was all a misunderstanding.

I know a drummer who is absolutely brilliant, but how he is in his early 50's is beyond me.  He even survived breaking nearly every bone in his body after a fall last year, but he can still play.  I saw him the other week, I'm kinda horrified how he looks. 

Painting is the same way.  As Picasso in the movie Modigliani says (paraphrased for the kids) "Sleep with many women, but drink in moderation."

He sounds like me, LOL. I even had a pretty bad fall recently, but thankfully didnt break anything -- I was sore in just about every bone and joint in my body, though, for a pretty long time.

I guess I'm either a bang-up musician, or a banged-up musician... Cheesy

You can be both.  Sometimes I watch the recordings from the past year of my band and I and I just wonder how in the hell I am alive.  Some of my fans show me "awesome recordings" on their phones of stuff we did and I do not remember it.  I must say the best set I ever did was in a completely dry club.  They also had amazing equipment.  I was so nervous because it was not my usual crowd and wanted a drink so bad, but instead my nerves took over and I made stupid jokes and talked to them. After I did the set they came and told me as I had my cigarette how they never get professionals like us...having only one single of which there may be 10 copies at most of I take that as a huge compliment.  I know in my gut I need to get the band together, probably with a new drummer as he has other projects and get going again.  I like painting and it made me money this year, but I have been playing guitar for 14 years come September.  My singing is not the greatest at all, but I get told I have real emotion in what I do.  Here is one of my sets at my old club:

I went and saw the Rev. Horton Heat show in houston this weekend. It's their 25th anniversary tour, which is impressive in and of itself, but knowing how those boys party, it's even more so. They even managed to be in better shape this time around!

I need an excuse like "artistic compulsion" for livin like I do. I party like a rock star, but I don't have the talent to support it, heh heh heh.

Well, so HERE you all are... I spend a few months at sea and you move the place on me.  Rather nice digs, tho, I must say.  George, a large single malt if you please, while I reminder myself to old friends...  Mr. Bailey!  Mr. Pennypecker!  What a brilliant coincidence!  May I join you for lunch?

Captain Grey!
What a pleasant surprise!
Especially since the rumors I heard a few months gone.
A nasty air battle against a certain Dutchmen with the destruction of both ships and a fiery crash off the coast of Peru.
I feared the worst when no word was heard. Good to see you still among the living.

Oh, goodness, I do apologize, Corsair! I was seconded to La Légion Etrangère for a short time, and occasionally lapse into la langue française without knowing it. Please forgive me, je vous en prie. It won't happen again.
