Don't Look Back.

It has been ten years since I watched that second plane hit the World Trade Center. I was off that day and was getting ready to go get a haircut, when the events started. The local commentators kept saying that maybe something was wrong with the radar in the New York area. I yelled at CNN, the fuck there is...we are being attacked. I went to Barb's house, where she had added a saloon, and we both watched the events unfold in horror. I immediately drove to Bennett to pick up my daughter. I think that you all know the rest of the story.

I have never been one to dwell on the past for very long. And the older I get, the less time I dwell. That is good advice at any age. Shit happens in life and one must move on; the sooner the better.

With that out of the way, I would like to tell you about a local band that I really listened to last night at Lagoon Bar. My friend for like forever, Danny Ray, has been touting Front Page News for quite some time. Front Page News is a cover band that always packs the dance floor. That is a testament to their showmanship and talent. They play all the songs that I have grown up listening to. And listening to music has never stopped for me and it never will. I even have in my final arrangements for "Ripple" to be played, as my last request.

First up is FPN, followed by one of their better covers last night. Oh, by the way, don't forget "Ripple".

Let's Roll!
