After becoming a radio guy, I moved around a lot and never thought much about my band days until I got an invitation to attend the reunion of all the ’60s bands at the Winnipeg Convention Center.
The scariest moment of the night, though, was when Randy and Burton strapped a Strat on me and pushed me out on stage to join the rest of the Jury, who were laughing their asses off.
However, I did manage to tell a stagehand to make sure my guitar was turned off if he wanted to make it through the night.
Then the strangest thing happened, as Terry hit the intro of our first record, “Until You Do,” my hands knew exactly what to do.
After twenty years of not playing my guitar, I had no idea even what the chord progressions were, but there I was playing them, and it was the last time I was ever on stage.

Little girls are fun and easy to make happy, but they become almost impossible as soon as they turn into women.
Why is it that the not-so-good-looking women are the ones who complain about men hitting on them, whereas the beautiful ladies never mention it?
Do women stop being naughty when the moment they no longer can conceive, or were they never naughty?
If the ladies really do like sensitive men the best, why do they always go home from the party with a Clint Eastwood type?
The only women I can handle attitude from are my daughters, and even that’s rather tough.
The government is the same as it’s always been, but unfortunately for them, we, the people, are smarter.
Before escaping to Canada, you may want to consider this, the far right is a little bit left of center.
Is it just me, or do all the presidents, upon leaving office, live like and near all the people they railed against?
Telling me what’s wrong with this picture pays a dollar an hour but fixing it pays a thousand.
