Not Pickin' Or Playin' Anymore :(

Monday, January 18, 2016 @5:41:31 PM


Not Able To Be Pickin' Or Playin' Anymore :(

Well, it was a great ride picking with all guys and all the bands I've been involved with for the last 45 years or so such as Natural Grass, The Northern Grass, Southern Grass, Joe Page And The Trad Mountain Boys, Stinkeye and most recently, Those Guys.

Also a few I can't remember that were thrown together at many a festival and Jam session I've had the opportunity to pick at over the years. but, I knew one day it would all come to a halt for one reason or another much to soon for me though.

Arthritis in every joint, Back Problems, Heart Condition, Plantar Fasciitis in both feet, Loud Ringing in my ears. I say ears but only one has worked since I was 16, also the various and many medications I have to take on a daily basis are all taking their toll and so I've had to cease my musical endeavors .

So, it is with a heavy heart that I hang up my Banjos, Mandolins, Autoharps, Ukuleles, Piano/Keyboards, Bagpipes, Dobros, Fiddles, Basses, Acoustic, Electric and Upright, Guitars, Electric and Acoustic, Cello, Guitaros, Balalaika and Harmonicas and not play them as a professional musician and prolly not even as a closet picker.

Thank you to all the musicians that have crossed my path and I theirs for the great and wonderful times playing music of one genre or another mostly Bluegrass my first and only love.
