some tunes

Ain’t it great when that perfect tune comes around on your device?

It could be something that reminds you of the best moment in your life

Or it could be the saddest song ever, sung here by my pal, Ann Arbor’s own Bill Kirchen

That was December 10, 1971, at Crisler Arena, packed for the John Sinclair Freedom Rally. Yes, he was sprung later that same month.  Bill was playing lead guitar for Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, who stole the show on a bill that included Bob Seger, Phil Ochs, Stevie Wonder and John & Yoko.  Was there ever a band that was more fun?

Music like that keeps me happy.  My life is good ‘cause I’ve got stuff that works

And I’m old now, but I don’t mind  Plus my much missed friend John Prine told me it’s going to be alright

I retired from the Rheumatology division of Michigan Medicine end of June '19 after 36 years there. Upon hitting Ann Arbor for the second time (I went to school here) it took me almost 8 months to meet Kathy, 17 months to buy her a house (on Harbal, where we still live), and 37 months to marry her. Kids never came, but we've been blessed with a crowd of colleagues, friends, neighbors and family that continues to grow. Lots of them are going to show up in this log eventually. Stay tuned.
