“Feeling good! Been doing my physical therapy and it’s going killer, got the go-ahead to ramp up my intensity on the playing, actually riffing along to full songs, pain is tolerable, barely any issues, bending big notes again, getting ready to return to that stage!

And since I quit drinking I’ve never slept so good in years! Crazy! Feeling amazing, getting my hand strength back a little at a time. Pumped!”
