  1. Mike,

    After having a severe flu i’ll just enjoy your Forty Years Ago blog about Bruce. I didn’t know the startup of him, just like I didn’t know the comparison to Bob Dylan…. I like many songs of Dylan, but the music of the Boss just keeps me warm and “stamping” (meaning stampeding, hostling and hurling; it’s the rock in it that just makes it!)
    So you have my attention again.
    Thank you for your start-up this new year and I hope I’ll enjoy much of your music and information about music, politics or whatever.
    Keep on doing the good work, my friend.
    BTW; how is your timetable? I mean; how can you do this separate to your family, your work ect.? Are you sleeping at nights? 🙂 🙂

    • Hi Gerard,

      Sorry to hear about your flu over the holidays! My wife and I were both sick over the holidays as well although I think we just had severe colds rather than the flu. We finally started to feel a little better last week.

      I am really glad you liked the post about Bruce’s first album. I think the Forty Years Ago Today concept has the potential to generate some interesting posts so please keep reading.

      Your question about balancing all of the things I am trying to do was very perceptive. To be honest, it is very hard to do. I have a very stressful job (I almost always put in 11-12 hours at work). When you add in family obligations and the blog something has to give and normally that is sleep. I love what I am doing, and am a little bit of a “work-a-holic”, so that keeps me going but some days I feel like I am getting too old for this!

      One more thing before I go….I just published a post on The Grass Roots that you inspired by some material that you sent me a couple of months ago. Check it out when you have time.

      Your Music Friend in the US,
