    I have known him since the start of 7th grade (1966). He now lives 18 houses away. We don't see each other as much, but the bond is still tight.

    Going on 30 years. We were born 3 days apart, and he's like a brother from a different mother. It's a real shame I couldn't prevent him from becoming a guitarist, but everyone has their flaws. He's pretty darn good at it though... would have been cooler if he took up drums - we'd be a killer rhythm section!

    "Best" is like basses. I'm just grateful I have a lot of good friends. :)

    I don't believe in the whole "best friend" thing.

    People would say my friend Joe is my "best friend" and I've known him for 12 years or so.
  15. My best friend is my wife, so that's 12 years now. Other than my wife, my best friend would be one of my brothers. But we had to wait until he hit 27 and I got to 35 before we got out of the little brother / big brother relationship and could really enjoy each other.

    For a relatively young guy (34), I've been blessed with many life-long friends.

    The longest is a close friend I've known for 29 years, since Kindergarten

    I have three close friends that I've known for 20 years

    About a half dozen or so that I've known for over 15 years.
