  5. Wow, just wow.

    You look close on 40 in the first picture, now you look a good 15 years younger than that.

    *And* you've switched from guitar to bass - that surely completed your rehab.... ;)

    cool deal Joe!

    I gave up the hard stuff in 94, the light stuff in 96 and finally cigarettes in 2001...

    unfortunately I haven't aged as nicely.
