A Love Letter To Musicians

Thank you for what you do.

The way you open your soul and share your inner world with us.

It is not always an easy place to see, feel, hear, but it is lyrical, and it is musical, and it is meaningful.

We lost Chester Bennington yesterday, the Singer of LINKIN PARK.

And a couple months before that, Chris Cornell.

But the list goes on and on.

Some of you live a pretty hard life, wealthy or not.

Fame or not.

Your pain can not be easily extinguished.

I Played Guitar and Sang for a handful of months in 1999 & 2000-01.

I purged my reality of that time, and it was good.

I never went beyond Rehearsals, but it changed me forever.

My Nephew has my SG, and my Girlfriend has my Fender.

And I still have my Dark Blue Alvarez Acoustic.

What you do is more than Poetry.

It is Blood, Light, Pain, Dark, Hope and so much more.

There are a lot of people out there who are struggling from one day to the next.

You help them make it.

But who helps you.

This Planet can be a Lonely Place.

A Painful Place.

A Beautiful Place.

Sometimes all the Therapy in the World can’t help out.

But it’s definitely worth a try.

So say the ones that Love you.

I’m sorry for your Torment, though it brings us Magic.

I’m sorry for your Darkness, though it keeps us Company.

Nuff Said
