maybe this should have been my 1st post. ah well the erratic life of a lead guitarist. My bass player is in prison for drugs and a random very large firecracker he built. and the other guitarist also a heroin addict. such to the state that our heavy cocaine snortin drummer got disgusted and cleaned himself up.

Hi my name is dave and i am a recovering musician. I am the lead guitarist for halfstep http://halfstep.no-ip.org got to play at so many places even a place called barefoot bobs in keywest. it was the kindest venue and people i ever ever met (i would row to paris to perform in a bar bob owned) I took the stearing wheel in my face as the bass guitar came flying forward. The brown ford bronco that came in my path was operated by a p00r sap like myself. I took the $95,000 settlement - 1/3 and wnet on my way. no need to wreck another like. My left eye orbit broken into my temple area, sternum fractured, neck fractured, left arm had severe nerve damaged, and the hospital had me walk (no not ride in a wheel chair) out of the hospital. It is called the samaritan hospital fwiw. but hey. i didnt die. so that was good... right? i use marijuana oil applied topically for better relief than i ever imagined. I can not use any kind of pharmecutical for pain at all without being nearly helpless. I am very grateful for the relief i enjoy for a natural groing medication
