I had a stubborn case of bronchitis which took about two months to throw off. I have severe emphysema which makes lung infections potentially life threatening. I'm finally on the mend but not totally back to where I was before the illness. I have never cancelled a gig due to illness in my life and I found it necessary to use supplemental oxygen in order to play last Saturday. The house was full a half hour before show time. I played one solo set of Americana on acoustic 12-string and one electric set of blues and rock with my band. A fan shot this video of my first song, Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor.

Mike you have an amazing voice and you play that guitar like it's meant to be played, it all sounds amazing considering how sick you were. Well done mate smile.gif
