I got a chance to see the legendary Mr Adrian Legg last night in an intimate little venue outside of Chicago. He plays guitar like no one else that I have ever seen. Truly some of the most beautiful pieces of music that I have ever heard. I cannot put into words how fortunate I am to be able to see someone like this perform.

I pre-ordered Adrian Legg's new CD 'Dead Bankers' a couple of weeks ago. He was using each purchase as running a 'raffle ticket' to give away the gear that he used to record the album. Well, I just got an e-mail informing me that I won a 'Cusak Music Tap-A-Delay'. It's a nice start to my day.

Taste of Lincoln Park this weekend. I think I might bring the camera down and shoot a few friend's bands on Saturday.

Going to see my favorite local cover band tonight, 97Nine featuring guitar GOD Dave Uhrich. A good friend of mine happened to see that we would be attending the show this evening. He works for Shiner Bock (beer). He does a lot of work with the venue. Out of the blue, I get a message via Facebook that we are on the guest list and will have VIP access for the night. I honestly have no idea what that means LOL. Since then, the band mentioned that Michael Angelo Batio will be sitting in with the band. I am a HAPPY camper right now !! Dave Uhrich and MAB on the same stage !! It's going to be a very, very interesting evening !!!

A quiet moment of clarity between pain pills and sedatives. Knee is swollen and sore, but better days are ahead. They were not able to repair the meniscus, so it was shaved down and cleaned up.. I lost about 30% of its total mass. i am not allowed to swim for at least three weeks. I am also not allowed to get the incisions wet, so I will be showering with my knee wrapped in Saran wrap. Getting older is a hell of a lot stranger than what I expected.

Looks like someone stole Zakk Wylde's Les Paul last night in Chicago. I may need an alibi if anyone wants to help out ;) http://www.guitarplayer.com/artists/1013/zakk-wyldes-pelham-blue-les-paul-stolen/25620

I have a very sad two year old with big red cheeks at the moment. He is getting some new molars in and not happy about it. Poor little man.

Three to six more inches of snow predicted today. This is the winter of my discontent.

I had to say goodbye to the man who taught me the meaning of the term 'unconditional love' this morning. My father 'Tom' passed away this morning rather suddenly. We didn't see this coming. I am thankful that he wasn't in any pain when he left us. He will be always be in our hearts,

Spending NYE in watching an extended set of several of Eric Clapton's Crossroads Festivals. The weather outside is more of what you would hope for a Christmas eve. Inside the only creature stirring is Tadhg. Happy New Year everyone !!
