Yes, it’s a week into the new year of 2016, and I’ve been quite remiss in not updating this blog over the past year! Time seems to fly by even more quickly and with so much going on in life, there’s not a lot left over for blogging.
It’s nice to see 2015 in the rear view window but mostly am looking ahead. The past year brought a lot of changes especially business wise, and I foresee a few more in store over the next 12 months.
On a personal level, I’m constantly amazed at how fast my son is growing! David is just the most awesome kid, and even though he’s hit the teenage years (can you believe it?) – there is no “teenage angst” to be seen. We’ve worked on a number of projects together although we still haven’t finished building the guitar kit we purchased earlier in the summer. That is a project we need to get back at, but we also need some extra tools to finish it off. Maybe later this month?
Many long ago readers and visitors will remember much talk about a band named “Wise, Young & King” which my eldest son drummed for. This band no longer exists – but Alex and the lead singer along with another previous member of WY&K reformed into a new band called “Suns Of Stone.” They have released 2 CD’s and I’ve had the pleasure and good fortune to be able to attend some of their gigs – very impressive!
In the past year, Suns of Stone also added one of my other older sons, Colin, as their bass player! So it was doubly exciting for me to see them early in December of 2015 – two of my sons playing up on the stage. Last week, I discovered that it’s also official that Suns of Stone will be opening up for Saga at The Phoenix in Toronto, on February 6th. In addition, there are rumours about a possible European tour later in the year… I might apply for a roadie job! 🙂 More on news of the tour as it becomes available.
I’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year and all the best in 2016. Hopefully this one will have some exciting and positive things for you! And perhaps I’ll find the time to blog more than just a couple of times every six months.
