Well it's birthday number 28. 27 is supposed to be the hardest year on rock stars (Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, Moon, and Nowell all died at 27). I didn't OD, though I am drinking an awful lot. Hmm, not sure what the next few years will bring. I am, as most people are these day, a bit apprehensive about the future. I am scared even. I want my kids to grow up substantially like I did, and I'm not sure how to make that happen.

"So it's your birthday. Well it's so good to have you back again!"
