yah, it's been a trying period lately... a lot of heavy shit has been going down.
this shit is just icing on the cake.
if you guys wanna help, one of the kindest things ya'll could do would be buy a copy of my brother's cd, from http://avalanche.us.com
it was barry and mark's studio; i was also a member of the easton brothers band.
i was lucky... all i lost was all the songs i had in the can.
most i had backed up, and the rest i can always re-do someday if need be... but man... barry in particular is devastated. he lost his whole life there pretty much.
the good thing is no one was hurt too badly... cousin kenny tried to fight it with an extinguisher, but the soundproofing in the walls may as well have been napalm. the whole building was pretty much gone by the time the fire trucks got there.
it was so hot, it melted the headlights in my brother's truck, a good 100 yards from the fire.. melted all the siding off the house, man...all that's left is cinders and speaker baskets.
i hope it never happens to anyone else.. it's too much to go thru, losing everything like that when your in your 50's.
insurance is a good thing... these people specialize in music gear: www.clarionins.com
not spamming for 'em, but just in case... i am seriously considering insuring all my gear after this.
sorry for the ot mates... rock on!
