Greetings...! Lots of amazing stuff coming up.... But I wanted to drop you a quick note about what's IMMEDIATELY coming up...
If you're into this sort of thing --please connect up with me on the overwhelming, but quite useful social media sites. This will be a music-filled year (again) :

In a few days -- I will be on a short run with my occasional trio
Come on out and check out our often odd, but weirdly soothing mix of rock, pop, electronics and guitar instrumentals.
This run concludes with and is inspired by the Second in a series of benefits for my other half - Cheri Jiosne. Many of you know she has been VALIANTLY fighting breast cancer -- and you have helped us out over the last several months and we really appreciate that more than words can convey.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND SUPPORT, POSITIVE ENERGY and CONCERN!!!
The fight continues -- but the good news is-- her new treatment protocol since Nov 2009 is working well -- we are seeing significant shrinking of the tumor, and new cancer growth that was showing up in oct/nov is now gone!! Recent blood tests have also been great. More info on what she's doing : www.burzynskimovie.com
So we continue on the same regimen, working towards the next three-month checkup. I continue to work overtime and to reach out to friends and family for any help they can offer, since our small amount of insurance ran out long ago.
Stand by -- I have two major tour announcements I am proud to be a part of, I'll be very busy for the next 6-8 weeks.....in the USA, Canada ( a tiny bit), and Europe........
