Since I'm also 53 years old/young and a family man and i have the same interests as this gentleman VinnyFlyingVFreak RIP... this kind of news makes me turn back to this post and say and think .. what takes these friends and comrades away from us.
right before 50 I worked really really hard to get me weight back down to 173 lbs and i try not to abuse alcohol and other stuff like i did in my rock-n-roll peak.. honestly i feel great and don't even need Viagra.. LOL
so, what got our friend Vinnie? stress, his weight, a divorce? other? any guess?
Even when known rockers and friends that are my exact age die for example Mike Starr, the original bassist in Alice In Chains it sort of slaps some reality into me and i say .. what was up with that? the dude was my age?? WTF im feeling great .. can i bite the dust too?
