Hit the double nickel last June.

If I ever catch the mad scientist that transferred my 18 year old mind into this 55 year old body, he's gonna be dog food ;)
Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

Heh. As the guitar player in my band says, I have no problem getting in touch with my inner child -- it's my inner adult I can't seem to access....

I left 55 in the dust a long time ago. I hit 62 this year in February. I am still rockin'; my band has a gig in two weeks. I have learned nearly sixty songs within the last year. we have ten more we want to cover. I am having fun.
