Boy Crazy MessageIf you have the record we released, you will notice that we mentioned something about following your instincts.

As many of you know, I have been forced to wear a neck brace while I play my instrument. This is to help stabilize my cervical spine as there are two vertebrae in my neck that have caused me intense neck and shoulder pain over the past 3 years. After years of physical therapy, acupuncture, and countless doctor visits, I have come to accept that this is a part of my life for the time being. Unfortunately, this would prohibit me from touring or playing for an extended period of time....
