This past week has been rough. I lost my job, we had a car take a death crap, and worst of all, a former bandmate decided that he no longer needed to be with us. I went to the service tonight. It was pretty hard to do it. I recorded 2 albums with this guy, many tours, tons of good times. Probably the best trombone player i've ever seen or heard. Killed it. This is the most selfish thing i have ever seen anyone do. The amount of people that he could've called... his freakin kids for cryin out loud... it doesn't make sense to anyone. His poor family (families).... I need a drink.
