Cheater Slicks drummer & the man who is father to my god-children, Dana Hatch, suffered a heart attack last night. He's doing all right & apparently the ambulance was there in no time which helped a lot. There's minimal, if any, damage to the muscle, & he's optimistic he'll be out of the hospital in no time.
They won't be playing their 25th anniversary party on Saturday the 28th, I can't imagine they'll be going to NY in a month for those shows, & even the big festival in Raleigh later this summer seems highly unlikely. None of this is that important. I love that guy & his crazy family.
When you are out getting hammered tonight or any time in the future, raise your glass to him. He's given a lot for the madcap life & soundtrack we all love so much.
