Highlight Of The Decade

Oh man, oh man, oh man, I don’t even know where to begin!!!

This year I achieved my lifetime dream – Syrup, Go On released their music video for Don’t Go (Ridin’ Down the Cosmic Drain) with yours truly as a dolled-up silver man. Additionally, I joined them on stage for a few songs on vocals & guitar to a packed out venue with some of my fave bands on the line-up!! They even added my own music project to the line-up of one of their shows. To sum up, Syrup, Go On made my decade, and to this day I still can’t stop remembering the joy I felt on those nights!

Prediction For Next Decade

I predict that I might not win the Powerball jackpot and buy a submarine, but hey, hopefully it happens?

I also predict that I’ll stop sitting around and finally release the next instalment of my solo music project – cheeky Messycable plug right there for ya!
