JAN 2020

GREETINGS AGAIN,
ITS THE SUNDAY OF THE GRAMMY'S + KOBE BRYANT, A SPORTS AND CULTURAL HERO + ICON WAS TRAGICALLY KILLED IN A HELICOPTER CRASH TODAY. IVE COMMISERATED ABOUT THE LOSS OF HIS YOUNG LIFE (41 YRS OLD) AND WROTE A POEM. I WANT 2 ALSO MENTION HOW ANOTHER ICON 4 ME + MY RICHLY COLORED + FLAVORED MUSICAL PALATTE: NEIL PEART. HE DIED LAST TUESDAY AT THE AGE OF 67. THE DRUMMER EXTRODINNAIRE + LYRIC WRITE OF THE BAND RUSH. MOST PEOPLE THAT I KNOW - WHO ARE ROCK + ROLL OFFICIANADOS - WILL SAY NEIL PEART WAS THE GREATEST ROCK DRUMMER, HANDS DOWN. SOME OF THE GREATEST, SHARPEST LYRIC WRITING I'VE EXPERIENCED. IT WAS 1976 AND I WAS GOING INTO MY 1ST YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL. MY OLDER BROTHER WAS GRADUATING FROM COLLEGE IN IDAHO. MY MOTHER, MY SISTER A FRIEND OF MY BROTHER, AND I, DROVE FROM SANTA MONICA 2 CALDWELL, IDAHO 4 HIS CEREMONIES. I WAS HANGIN AROUND IN HIS DORMITORY + I MET A GUY WHO INVITED ME 2 SMOKE A JOINT AND HEAR HIS NEW ALBUM. IT WAS RUSH'S "2112" AND IT BLEW ME AWAY. THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER. @ THE END I BEHAN SCHOOL. AND MY 1ST PERIOD CLASS I MET DENNY. A NEW FRIEND FOR A MILLION ADVENTURES. RUSH WAS HIS FAVORITE BAND.
THE GRAMMYS WERE GREAT.
LOVE U GUYS,

Favorite
