My... oh... my... how things can change SO unbelievably quickly. Lady Fate is the biggest TEASE...

you'll be rollin' SO good... and... then... SMACK! You can all relate! And it's BOUND to happen, no matter what. A good motto I've learned long ago... hope for the best, prepare for the worst... but... some things you can't prepare for. Sometimes, you just gotta take a punch. All you can do is roll with it, get up, and keep fightin'. Life is full of loss, nothin' you can do about it... except keep your chin up, and do the best you can... even when you feel like you don't wanna do ANYTHING... when every moment just hurts. Now, I've stated before, and I FIRMLY believe, we are ALL in this together, PARTICULARLY if we share the same beliefs and interest. The Rock and Roll/Heavy Metal community is especially close. We love... no, let me say this right... we ARE part of a lifestyle that is driven by a form of music that's not acceptable be the average Sheep on the Street. Most people conform to what they are told to do, raised by a society that discourages individuality. Go stand in line! Do what you're told! Us Rockers DON'T! Period! We do what we want and like, based on our own ideas and beliefs, and we don't CARE what anyone else thinks or says! We are MILLIONS, spread out to every nook and cranny of this gorgeous plant, and, even if I have never met you, if you ROCK, you are part of MY family!!! When one of us is lost, it hurts us all, particularly if the loss is senseless, and could easily have been avoided. I am, of course, talking about the unbelievably tragic occurrence of July 14th, when our Brothers and Sister of ADRENALINE MOB were just in the wrong place, at the wrong time. That shit happens, but THEM!?! THIS! hurts! Now, this Rock and Roll business takes its toll, we DO seem to lose a lot more of our family members than average, but, if it's due to natural causes, such as, for us, ...overdose... liver problems... jealous women... did some drunk-ass crazy shit at the hotel one night... toured too fucking hard for too long, and just dropped dead... passed out in a car in the cold... you can accept it a little better than a fucking accident. That fucking trucker was NOT paying attention, and when you got 40 fucking TONS goin' down the road at 65 BETTER pay THE FUCK attention! I hope they do an in-depth investigation and nail his ASS to the wall!
