I Sickie….

I Sickie….

My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary. Martin Luther 

Why, oh why now? I woke this morning with a little bit of a sore throat, the sneezels, and head congestion. We have this gig coming up on Saturday and I am hoping that I will be over this dam thing before Saturday. It’s going to be a real test on my vocals tonight for rehearsals, but that’s how it goes brothers and sisters. You don’t stop the train just because the engine is chugging a little slow and poorly. I am going to go get some OJ and try my damdest just to will myself to get better. The worse thing is the scratchiness in my throat. In 20 + years of performing I have only had my voice go out once when I was sick and I hope that if I am still sick come Saturday this isn’t that “other” time. I have been on stage and sang when I was so sick I thought I was going to die, but I have always managed to pull through. I guess this is the week of heavy mantras, a lot of bed rest and lots of hot broth and cold OJ…..WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :)

With that I leave you with Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jeff Beck…
