Wyoming Tales: T. Rex at Fifty

April 11, 1964 was windy at the University. Of course, in Laramie, Wyoming it’s generally ALWAYS windy. I was bundled into my dress jacket, and was wind chilled by it all.

Still missing Amy

Life creeps up on you, man. I don’t understand how it is that I am 27 years old because it feels like I was 16 just yesterday. And in little ways, I feel older than my age – I no longer even attempt to seek out new music, I’m content in the songs and album of the past – they are always better, right?
