After getting paid at lunchtime for last weeks gigs and CD sales, I put my 60 notice in with the GP/BL of my main gigging trio. Too much travel out of town, too much too much last year (150+ shows). I've neglected too many things and folks during the past 15 months, and I can play in town for as good/better pay, I've had some offers, and because of that I feel ok dictating what I will and won't do. Maybe I'm getting too old, but it just wasn't as much fun anymore. I still love playing blues, and I'll still cover a date or two with them when they need it, but for now I'm 60 days out and counting. Thanks for the memories! I feel better......I think.
