    well I read THAT title all wrong. I swore it said "Brain" and my first thought was "well how old is the rest of ya, and what's the story behind THAT?"

    My Dad was so pissed when I came home w a Stray Cats and a Blasters album given to me by a cute little blonde in 81' that thought
    my band was cool. She was fine w my elvis and chuck berry covers but she came over to me and said "here, listen to this.. its cooler"
    And that very music would catch me a wife later on in 1985. Thank you Brian Setzer.

    ps. I still find this collection of B - Sides to be the best of the Cats music.

    I did 60 last August not an easy thing
    My 10 year old grandson says it’s the new 40 (I planted that seed in his head lol)
    56 was devastating for me as it was the 60 side of 50 something but it brought me back to the electric guitar
    I had been playing bluegrass for the previous 15 years and while I love the music the audience and musicians I was with were all much older than I
    Cliche I know but it is just a number and Heath and where your head is at are more important

    Welcome although I can’t take any credit
    When I was gigging bluegrass regularly
    My wife would tease me about the woman throwing their panties at me I informed her that while it might be true they were mostly disposable
    Yuck

    I always thought of him as a younger dude. He's only six years younger then me. Where does the time go?

    Happy Birthday Mr. Setzer!
