    You are not my bro, guy. There is a dark cloud that follows you.

    Damn we agree on more things... Jerrys junkie weakness always bothered me, he had the worst addictive personality around and it did him in. The selfish part is due to focusing on nothing but the next fix. It's almost too bad he made such a good living and could always afford the next hit. He was the poster boy for that troubled artist syndrome. We also agree that the cloud that spook lives in (it doesn't follow him ) is super annoying.

    When I asked the question about what would he think I was more wondering if he would appreciate that D&C is carrying on like they are with Mayer, would he think that Mayer is 'doing right by the music' as opposed to all the keyboard warriors that can't help but talk shit rather than enjoy the evolution of the music. I know more than a few people that refuse to even listen to it, that think the music should have died with Jerry. They think that the remaining band members shouldn't even be playing it anymore and that their legacy and lifes work should be shelved and they should fade into the past because Jerry was the one that 'owned it.' My take on it is that the artist in Jerry would have appreciated it to such an extent that he would have wanted to be a part of it all. He'd want to play with every band working the genre, he'd be showing up at all sorts of gigs and loving that all of these other artists loved his work.

    As far as great show memories my first show still remains towards the top of the list. Back when GA shows were still the thing and you could move around and do your thing I used to look for the best sound in the house. That usually meant just off the floor but not more than a few rows up at most in hockey/basketball arenas. At Nassau Coliseum, which I knew well because it was 15 minutes from home, that meant the penalty boxes were perfect so I hung out in the Islanders box for the whole show and had it all to myself. Lotsa room to dance with nobody in the way. Win.

    gosh! addiction is devastating for everybody involved! what a unique thought! maybe even fame and adoration are, too!

    poor jerry would be further devastated to hear how much he hurt you kids and undoubtedly feel like he really owes you something cuz you're so bitter.

    at least we have mayer, a tower of virtue, doing right by the music. whew!

    Hahaha pretty far from it but at this point, other than weed and the occasional doses, I don't think the current band members have such terrible things going on. At least not to the extent that they used to, certainly not to the point that it will kill them. At least not that we're hearing about regularly.

    You still live in a dark cloud dude. Sorry but you're never going to redeem yourself completely after the shit you said when you were Spook.

    that is truly hilarious and off-topic, bud, but way to be tgr's collective judgment.

    i am not concerned with redeeming myself to the entirety of a message board with a significant component of hypocritical juvenile assholes who make me look like dale carnegie. i apologized for being an asshole because i was. it doesn't mean i think i'm a bigger asshole than anybody else or care whether you think i'm an asshole. it means it's not the way i want to live and i shouldn't have inflicted it on others. i don't have any problem whatsoever with the vast majority of views i've espoused here. i've said the same things many times as spook and since. some people expressed loathing and others expressed support then and now.

    i'm sorry to hear you're still so busted up about it after all this time.

    if you think i live in a dark cloud now you don't know dark.
