It's been a pleasure reading some of your posts! I'm a somewhat right leaning independent and a now retired front man for a rock group. I'm also a reformed gambler...OK I lied and still gamble but it's been a good investment through the years.

Welcome, Decon. I've been liking your posts.

PS Did you mean Decon as in rat poison or Deacon as in Steely Dan?
Not a spelling Nazi, just curious.

Welcome Decon. I, too, perform in popular regional rock band and I, too, am considering retiring from the stage. But I'm the bass player, ( so no one will miss me. LOL! )

Welcome to DP!

Some gamblers make their living that way. It must be nice being able to make a good living off gambling.

Ok, so no one has asked, I guess I will since the curiosity is killin' me...would we recognize your band and could we have a taste of your music...if the answer is no, I'll understand but I'll also be deeply disappointed...😞😊

Elora...some would recognize our band,we toured in the 70's. I gave the name of our band out once and it was a big mistake! I wouldn't say we ever made it into the top 10. Our band was out of Detroit,our music was R&R and blues.

Captain...a good bass player will always be missed, my voice is gone now and this year I had my 70th birthday. Unlike some vocalist that should no longer take the stage,I refused to embarrass myself and I let it go.

It depends on one’s definition of gambling. I will play pool for money, but only with those who I can reasonably expect to beat. ;)

I played pool for money myself. I did pretty good until my eyesight got bad. But I took more pleasure in taking money from those who had a good chance of taking me to the cleaners.

Hopefully, your political voice is still strong.

So much great music came out of Detroit. Welcome to the forum.

Fortunately...I've had a 70/30 winning ratio and was once rated 46th in the nation. It beats working but it's bad for my BP as the game can be very stressful. In truth...it's a young man's game.

Welcome! I play bass, guitar and keys. I don't play out anymore because I'd rather go to bed.

I still record at home tho.
