  4. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Big Wheel change his name to Blackbird????

    Or am I just an idiot?

    No, Big Wheel was actually decapitated in an accident.

    Blackbird is a look-and-sound-a-like (thanks to some surgery).

    You can hear all sorts of clues to this in his bass playing.

    Big Wheel had a brush with death on vacation. Here's a pic:

    After the ordeal, he decided to dedicate his life to helping others by becoming a multimillionaire. Charity begins at home, right?

    If you need to know, I'm his twin. People have debated which of us is the evil one for decades. The fact we're never seen together complicates matters further.

    And Rabid_Granny, you'd better not complain that I got you running around in circles or I'll nail your other foot to the floor.:p
