Let me Just Say October 2nd 2017 was a Strange and Eye Opening Day for Me. There were Two Major Things that Happen in Music on this Day. First when I woke Up and turned on the TV, I saw that Tom Petty was in the Hospital and he was on Life Support. Just So You Know I LOVE TOM. To me he was One of the Last Real ROCK STAR's of the late 70's, ( Don't get me Wrong I Love- Duane Allman, Billy Gibbons , Mick Ronson , Ronnie Montrose , Tommy Bolin and this list goes on). But Tom Had that Old School ROCK STAR SWAGGER, Plus He was in a Band with one of the Beatles. He is also in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame...  OK Most of You Know By Now. That I wanted to be a ROCK STAR, But I had to Learn my Craft, And go thru my Rock & roll, Rock , R & B and Punk Thing before I did a 360 back to the Rock Thing. By the way when Tom Petty got to his 3rd LP. I was just Starting my thing with the band NO BRAKES. And there he was Saying " Hey Jimmi  I'm the New Rock Star Now". Plus I had to learn that SWAGGER thing ( Still Don't Know if I ever Got That- But I really did Try).  Ok so lets move on with this Story...( But I'll get back to it Soon). So Then I switch the channel and I see this other thing, That was going on in Vegas. This Man was in the Mandalay Bay Casino on the 32nd Floor. And he had Killed 58 people and injured 530 others, At a Out Door Country and Western Concert. With Multiple Semi-Automatic Rifles ( That were Modified to perform like Machine Guns) plus he had Hundred of Rounds of Ammunition ( Really he had 23 Guns- A little of Everything) in his Room and 19 more at his Home. Ok let me side track a little here... I've been trying My Best to keep my Point of View about the Government to my self.  But when You Jump into the Music Area, Then Your on My Turf...Ok the Gun Thing (I don't like It) " But I get it". If you want a Gun to Hunt (OK). If you want a Gun to Protect Your House and loved Ones (OK). But if you want a Semi-Automatic Rifle that was modified to perform like a Machine Gun...I'm Sorry But That's a Gun for War. And I'm sorry, But I hope the People of the Great USA are not at War with Each Other ... And by the Way at the end of the Day, TOM PETTY Passed. This was not a Great Day. Jimmi  PS  That ROCK STAR thing that I said I wanted. Well that was my Dream, You Know how people Say in the USA, Any Thing is Possible. Well the other side of that Coin is... " And please Think About This"... That Man with that Gun...How Many of those People's Dreams Did He Take away...
