I feel like if I lived on bonaire I’d want to do nothing but dive every day. I guess when it becomes your work it’s different. Must feel weird to be on a small island so closed off and everything shut down.

I still enjoy diving. Even if its my job. Now do lots of fun diving. No students. Just a few instructors. Having fun. After dive. Case of cold beer. Even its starting to catch up to me this not working. And no teaching. Getting fustrated. After 14 months at home. Brew beer. Dive. Hang out at the pool. Fireup the bbq. I try to enjoy my self. Today did the whole stevie ray Vaughn. Collection

Funny, peeps want to imitate SRV… If they only knew about those big strings he played on… Those little 100 watt combo’s running full blast… That guy would glue his fingers to his finger nails with crazy glue! THAT… is some seriously powerful playing…

E.C. is also a great player… There are so many… and they don’t get there from being mediocre… I doubt they grabbed a guitar and went right to the top… If they got paid a nickel for each hour they practiced, they’d be some very wealthy peeps…
I just really like the story a song tells. And with the right musicians, the story becomes so much more…

I’ve always been a big SRV fan. There are many greats in the ranks of the old bluesmen and Buddy Guy has always been at the top of me.

A guy I’ve always thought was under appreciated as a guitarist is Prince. His solo on My Guitar Gently Weeps at the Grammy’s which I think was for EC’s hall of fame induction was just sick, he had some great guitarists on stage who were as staggered by his performance as the crowd was. SO many great talents lost too young.
