    I just found out last night that my dear friend & the drummer for our band most likely has cancer. He's been having some muscular issues lately & in a fair amount of pain. Yesterday the docs told him that he has a broken collar bone, apparently due to bone deterioration. He never felt it because of a large growth surrounding it. In addition to that, the bone in one of his upper arms is also highly deteriorated. They're going in Monday to replace that bone with a steel rod. The oncologist will be there to take samples of bone & tissue for testing.

    Please keep a good thought for Paul, folks. He's like a brother to me & only 53 years old.

    My wishes go out to your friend Paul. Cancer is a horrible disease. My aunt recently died from pancreatic cancer which is one of the worse. Hope that his treatments work out for the best.

    Best wishes Paul. If I believed in anything I'd ask it to take good care if you.
