Thank you for allowing me to continue on with being a contributor. It is, as always an honor and a privilege.

Health Update

Sorry it has been a while. I have been really sick the past 2 months and the recovery has been slow. As most know this project was started because of my cancer related issues and my recent check up says I am winning. Which means I can focus more on this site than before. That is the exact plan. I need to fix a lot of pages with things ranging from bad uploads to missing reviews. After all of that I will be reaching and posting stuff from the unseen archives.

Apollo Theater Collapse

I just wanted to say I was there in the building. Mentally it is still a lot to wrap my head around and it is still all really confusing. I am progressing through it with a therapy session and being completely open with people. Wind isn't kind and we had another thunderstorm the next night and it was rough. I am sure deep down those traumas will stick with me for forever. Physically my body isn't recovering from everything I had to do that night. I am beat every minute of the day and going to the chiropractor often to relieve some issues for a few days atleast. There is a part of me that wants to release my full story, but the KNOTFEST crew were gracious enough to post part of my experience and get people that need it attention. I am forever indebted to Chris and Ramon for giving me that option. I highly recommend reading it to understand where I am at. I will be back to attempting to cover shows in May so fingers crossed I land some cool stuff. Getting this website fixed and figuring out why my reviews are not posting is also on the checklist. If anything do me a favor and tell your loved ones how much you care. Life changes in an instant.

Hello everyone,

2022 was a banner year. I started this project as a music only outlet about a year ago. It was all or nothing with it. This year has been amazing. Knotfest picking me up for Rockfest, a festival I always went to has been the highlight without a doubt. They also hooked me up with a ton of other events such as the legendary Slipknot and Ghosts performance in Green Bay, WI I have to thank them over and over for the experiences. I have to thank the club I associate with and the athletic venues as well. For allowing me to take time to accomplish these goals has done nothing more than making me hungrier than before.

So where does that leave me right now? Currently, there are not many shows going on in the area, so I have decided to pull back the website for a month and figure out why items are not being posted and disappearing all together. It makes me look like an idiot when I have to send links out to publicists. If I have enough time within all of that I might continue to dig through my archives and post. The idea of completely changing my layout has also crossed my mind. Time shall tell.

In the end, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has approved, supported, encouraged, and pushed me. Without all of this I could not continue on with this journey.

Much Love,

Using Format
