Kid Rock, Eminem & Robbie Mac?

Well Boy Wonder reporting live from Beantown, my current second home. The tour’s been still rolling along and while we’re still not at 100% we’re still kicking ass. Last week was tough between here and Detroit. Michigan is flat and a little scary if you steer off track so I don’t think it’ll be a gotta get to spot. Shot outta there Friday night for a late visit in T.O I guess staying somewhere for 7.5 hours counts as a visit. Back to the airport and home we go. Special thanks to Air Canada for screwing up my day and countless others as well with their stellar service. GRRRR…. Whoops sorry I’m watching the Grammy’s and did Melissa Etheridge ever just rock out on the joplin tribute. I got goosebumps and of course me being me a bit weepy. She’s just getting over Cancer so that’s a little close to home these days. Okay and we’re back. So, I was home for all of 25 hours and that just sucks. On a brighter note the whole fam-damily met me at the airport and kids were super duper to see as was the lady who keeps it all rolling when I’m not around. Now back to Boston, still watching the show Tim Mcgraw does “Live like you were dying” these lyrics remind of those who make and made me what I am today….

He said I was in my early forties with a lot of life before me when a moment came that stopped me on a dime and I spent most of the next days looking at the x-rays Talking bout the options and talking bout sweet time I asked him when it sank in that this might really be the real end how’s it hit you when you get that kinda news man what’d you do and he said I went sky diving I went Rocky Mountain climbing I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named FuManchu and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter and I gave forgiveness I’d been denying and he said someday I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying. He said I was finally the husband that most the time I wasn’t and I became a friend a friend would like to have and all the sudden going fishin wasn’t such an imposition and I went three times that year I lost my dad well I finally read the good book and I took a good long hard look at what I’d do if I could do it all again and then I went sky diving I went Rocky Mountain climbing I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named FuManchu and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter and I gave forgiveness I’d been denying and he said someday I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying. Like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about what’d you do with it what did you do with it what did I do with it what would I do with it? Sky diving I went Rocky Mountain climbing I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named FuManchu and then I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter and I watched an eagle as it was flying and he said someday I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying. To live like you were dying.

Those who read this from time to time will no doubt know that I love music and that’s why I leave lyrics from songs I love. I spend lots of time rolling down the road, flying the skies singing and living like I was dying. All the while those who I love are home keeping the home fires burning. As it’s now Valentine’s Day and I’m here in Beantown thanks go to those who I so often selfishly have to leave behind I love you all good night…
