Hello Dear Reader. You are still with me and I thank you greatly.
I feel the need to take a pause and speak to you directly. I will probably not ever do this again. From now on, I promise just stories!
The stories I have told in this early start of my journey with you have been fun and there will be many more.
When I decided to write my stories, I debated on how deep I was going to go into the tough stuff in my life. The low times… the bad times… the not “normal” way things were in my life times… or should I keep it light and fun. Maybe that is what people want to read… Maybe they don’t want me shoveling the dirt of my life and the music business on to these pages.
For better or for worse I have decided that the tough subjects and events of my life are just as important (if not more) to my story, even if they are hard to tell, but maybe somebody can learn from from them. Maybe they can learn how to deal with some of the things I faced better or different than I did. If I am going to be truthful and correctly represent the theme of my blog to you, then I have to go there.
I am not sure how you feel about it, or will feel about it down the road. Just remember this, I am fine, I smile a whole lot and couldn’t be a happier father, husband and family man and… I wouldn’t change a thing about my life now. That is important to remember as I delve deeper into my theme; the trials and tribulations of growing up in this crazy world of music and entertainment when I did. Remember this statement from my first story:
“I will not always be the hero of my stories. Although I won’t always be the ass either. They will be real and true to the best of my recollection. A common theme will be my thinking behind my decisions and actions. These will not be excuses they will just be the truth of why I did what I did at the time.”
There will be stories of my childhood and years before music in the future also. They will probably rattle you a little, but, I feel it is important. These early years, when incorporated with my experiences in the music business are what shapes how and why I am, and who I am. They show how it affected my career, how my career affected me, and how I lived my life in later years.
After having said all that. Feel free to let me know your thoughts. Please.
Thank you Dear Reader.
