Boneheads Gigs

Funeral for a not dead friend

Played a strange gig tonight. It was a fundraiser for a guy who is close to dying. He’s on oxygen, 20% lung capacity. He’s broke and the show was intended to raise money for this guy’s funeral. Brutal.


This guy is only 56 and he looks baaaaad. He really does look like he’s about to die. He’s damn near white as a ghost. No skin color. Then I realized why while loading my gear. Here’s this guy with 20% lung capacity, on oxygen, coughing his guts out… while having a cigarette. Amazing.
