Let's lighten things up a bit for a moment, shall we?

EC is truly a beast, as many of you are wont to say on this forum. I am so grateful for all that I have learned from you all in just the short time that I have had the privilege to be here. My guy, Dave, who starts treatment next week, is an excellent lead guitarist in a band. He just plays for fun, has a real "day job", but I thought it might be fun to share him with you all. He is the guitarist on the left hand side of this video. He has an orange guitar, he's wearing a black blazer and sunglasses,and has gray hair. This was a demo that the band made a couple of summers ago. Dave also sings a snippet of "Mustang Sally" at the 8:58 or so mark on the clip. I'm very proud of him, just thought it might be fun to share with you. This probably isn't the best place to put it, but wasn't sure where else to do so. So thanks for indulging me. Enjoy! Music seems to make us all feel better. I know Dave will use it in his recovery.

As a fellow guitarist, I enjoyed the video. I have been playing for 50 years. My brother and I just finished our 2nd cd of cover songs. Kind of a "bucket list" thing.

Hello and thanks for the light relief.
You tell Dave to keep on 'rockin' and we'll all keep on praying for him.
All the luck in the world.
Prayers and hugs,
Marci x

Bermudagirl, third sift rocks and Dave is a great guitarist and looks like he is having a great time. Does a good cover of Mustang Sally too. I think if he had the sax I might have mistaken him for a certain cool ex President. ;) I hope Dave will get some joy playing guitar whenever he feels well enough and when he can't play- listening to his music. Music is such a gift- so I hope it helps both of you through this. Maybe 3rd shift could even do some playing at an EC benefit sometime down the road. Ya never know.. eh ? Where will Dave be getting treatment and is he a surgical candidate? Thanks for sharing and wish you all a successful journey through this nasty treatment.
