Remember, 3/22 in Anaheim: Night of Debauchery 2 with Enrot! Go to the show and party!
Having said all that, I have to pay tribute to a very close friend, bandmate, confidant, mentor and any other thing I left out. Matt Ryd was my brother in so many ways. He decided to end his life about a month ago and I’m about to leave for Chicago to play cajon on one of his songs at he public service. I cannot name all the good Matt has personally brought into my life and I won’t attempt to list everything now, but know that that when Matt left we lost one of the best. And if you read his Facebook page, you’ll find that I’m not nearly the only one with this kind of story. Matt touched so many people’s lives. I’m honored to have been so close with Matt and so proud to be involved in his tribute. I just wish he wasn’t gone.
Today we had another busy day. Jen and I got up early and drove to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest in AZ. This was a pretty amazing stop. The rocks and scenery are incredible and the actual petrified forest really has to be seen to be believed. Our next stop was Scottsdale to visit my family and Google took us on this crazy route through all these national forests. The drive was a blast. Got to my mom’s and, of course, she already had dinner waiting. We ate, drank and had a blast. We’ll be here tomorrow night as well then hitting LA on Monday to find an apartment!!!
