I'm rehearsing with a sore rib cage with 2 cracked ribs. I tried to take a speed bike where no man has been before LOL. The law of gravity had it's own program. With Rome around the corner I'm working on the new material. The percussive signature of the music requires me to be clean and strong. 21 pieces is my rig for this trip. I believe that the spirit of the drum will carry me through. Or simply hide me while I cry on stage.
