It saddens me to see so many of our influential musicians leaving here so soon. Loosing their lives over their *vices* that have spiraled out of control. We as individuals have this *it can’t happen to me* mentality and it’s killing us slowly but surely. It makes me think of how we allow our *vices* to destroy our bodies and ultimately our lives. It’s time we start to look *within* to see *why* we are damaging the very thing that keeps us alive, breathing, and walking around. I’ll be the 1st to say that I have *vices* that I battle everyday. I’m no better than the next man but acknowledging that you have a problem is the first step towards gaining and receiving help. Our *vices* are taking us outta here faster than a blink of an eye. Now is the time to make a change for the better – WE are worth it!!
