Some new developments bring me to bump this thread. As I alluded to here, I recently received some bad news: I've been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Thanks to medical advances and the availability of drug therapies, the prognosis isn't nearly as dire as it once might have been. But it's still not great news, and, in particular, it doesn't bode particularly well for my future as a guitarist (not that I was ever that good to begin with).
In any event, this recording, and the central theme of the song, now take on added meaning for me. For my friends, for my loved ones, for my children, and yes, for me: it means that I won't give in.
My prepayment of royalties entitles me to distribute more copies than I'm ever likely to distribute, so free feel to ask.
