My bro the bass player. His band played out at a local bar tonight. Other than at a bandmate's wedding last August, this is the first time they've played for an audience since February 2006 when he was in a terrible auto accident. His car was rear-ended by a semi and pushed into the path of an oncoming pickup truck. He had emergency brain surgery and was in a coma for several weeks while we waited and wondered what the quality of his life would be like. He also had surgery to fuse the worst of the crushed vertebra in his spine -- the ones that threatened his spinal cord -- and suffered a broken shoulder blade. The road to recovery was not fun. He's doing pretty great now, though!. Rock on, Mikey!
I doubt I'll ever be a concert photographer. ; )
