Man, I joined this forum to post a goofy picture of Ani DiFranco, RZA, and Steve, and I end up in tears.

What a sad, horrific, depressing, but ultimately uplifting story. I'll be buying this record soon.

I don't come here often but was very moved by Steve's tip of the hat to Mr. Grabski. Truly inspiring.

Hey friends, feel like I'm toeing the line on self-promo here, but last night, Small Awesome unveiled a song we wrote in loving memory of John Grabski III. Here is a teaser of it.


for those inclined, the lyrics of this section:

And should the wraith choose I
I will adore you even more
across the great divide
I'm thinking about tomorrow
and what it brings
as it unfurls its wings
kerble is right.

i haven't been on much, i had no idea you were struggling with cancer...i hope you're getting through it...

lately i've been listening to this album a lot and it's a short biography, the grit of his story really pummels through...

Got my copy in the mail today. Had a nice email exchange with his Mom about it. I can't wait to give it a spin tonight when I get home from work.

Rock Always Wins.

Pasta! I hope you get better man. My Mother beat cancer over 10 years ago. You can too.
