Why didn't you tell me it would be this important to collect email addresses for my mailing list? I could have a list of people in all the countries that I played in up until 2005 when I took a break to have my two girls. I could be communicating with them now through facebook and twitter. Not to mention telling them about upcoming releases and concerts. Now when I start touring again I feel like I'm starting at the beginning.
Oh yeah, and why didn't you tell me to do like Elvis Presley when he was drafted… to record an album or two to release while I was busy having kids? That way I could have at least maintained my relationship with reviewers. Oh well, I'll forgive you and hope that you ask your next of kin, 2010 to be nice to me. I guess I won't see you again dear 1999. Farewell!

1999 didn't seem to be very helpful. ;')
LOL! Well I should maybe also thank 1999 for crossing the paths of Drew Gress, Tony Malaby and myself. Thanks to 1997 I was already married to Scott.
oooh, very good advice! I didn't know Elvis did that when he was drafted, smart move…
