Band reunion gigs have been dicey for me. My friends and family know I almost died from a band reunion the Exits played on March 22, 2008. We were rehearsing the extended drum solo on "Wipeout," when I had my own personal wipeout. Thanks to some fast acting bandmates—Terry Mitchell, Wayne & Cody Rutschman, Garry Conrad and Dr. Michael Ward at Kingman Regional—I lived to fight another day.
This coming Sunday (Nov. 13) me and some of my former bandmates are going to be at Pranksters Too at Thomas and Hayden Roads in Scottsdale for the induction of the three Zonies, below, into the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame. I don't think I'm being inducted for my drumming, but we're going to rock out after the ceremony, which lasts from 4 until 7 p.m. and we would love for you to come. You can bring anyone you like, no cover (just a $10 recommended donation to the museum).
