Default Greetings from Gavin B.

When I signed in, I noticed it had been a year since I last posted on Music Banter, so I feel like a new member since I've been gone so long.

Last December I pretty much stopped participating in Music Banter, following a dreadful year in which both my mother and younger brother both died & my wife and I divorced after 13 years of marriage. I lost interest in writing about music and basically spent a year trying to adapt to the realities of my new life.

I'm glad to see that Jackhammer and Bulldog are still at the ramparts, fighting the good fight on behalf of great music. I'm especially happy to see that they've started a reggae thread which is the music that continues to be the heartbeat of my life.

Anyway, I was thinking about starting a journal on the music I've been listening to, if it's okay with the Music Banter admin. I hope to be posting more often now that I've restored some much needed order to my life.

Peace to everyone, everywhere,

Gavin B.

Sorry to hear you have had such a tough year but welcome back.

I'd say that your journal is among the very best here so if you wanna start another one or pick the old one up again, take it away!

I don't know you, but man thats gotta be rough. I had a similar year. Loss of Father, loss of friend, then GF diagnosed with cancer. Music can help the healing process if you have the right mindframe.

Here's to a better year!

Hey! I was wondering where you've been. I assumed that you had outgrown MB or something. I'm sorry about you're personal troubles but I'm glad you're back and I hope you get straight back into dropping esoteric knowledge on us.
