So hope everyone picks up the NFT for the new HELIX song BROTHER FROM A DIFFERENT MOTHER. It's been a long process to see the song to completion. Originally the idea came about from a writing session I had with former HELIX lead guitarist Kaleb Duck. We took the idea to the rest of the band and from there they all put their own "touch" to the song.

Fritz has a very unique sound as a drummer-a uniqueness that only comes from nearly 50 years of playing drums. He's what we call in the business a "hitter", and he pounds the f**k out of those skins. For his tracks we utilized the services of Aaron Murray on the board and the old D.B. Studios on Charterhouse Ave., in London.

Once Fritz and the rest of the band were happy with all the drum tracks, we then moved to Daryl's Dawghawse Studios in St. Catherines. Daryl was the bass player, producer, and background singer on this track. He laid down a smokin' bass track and was meticulous with making sure everything sounded just so. I came in several times to do vocals, each time tweeking my previous attempt. In between my visits Chris & Kaleb added their leads and vocals. Some of the vocals, like the HEYS! in the middle 8 breakdown were recorded in Provost, Alberta when we played there. Daryl got the crowd to yell and had Stewie record it at the board. The last vocals to be added were by Cindy Wiechmann & Serena Pryne.

Once all the parts were recorded, they were then sent to Seigfried Meier, the owner of Beach Studios, located in Goderich. "Siggy" has mixed quite a bit of our stuff over the past several years, including the album "OLD SCHOOL." Once Seigfried was done, the last step was to send it to Harry Hess (of Harem Scarem fame) to master at HBomb Studios in Toronto.

Now the song is out on SING only, as an NFT. You'll have to google that term and do a little research as to what it's all about-it's "cutting edge" technology. I'm 67 and get a little intimidated by some of the newest technology that's coming out, but hey!---nothing ventured, nothing gained, eh? Ya gotta open your mind to new ideas!

Well, I made the big decision the other day....After years of going on budget holidays I've decided to splurg for a change. My buddy Dereck Rauchfleisz has been bugging me for awhile now to go with him to Costa Rica for a week to go fishing. It was an expensive proposition, and having pinched pennies for many years, a big decision. I changed my mind from "no" to "yes" several times, actually telling Derek at one point "no."

Luckily I have a good wife who supports me. When I asked her what I should do she barked, "GO!" Having her blessing changed my mind.

Lately we've been talking about travelling a little more. Lynda is 71 and I'm 67. We want to do it while we still feel physically good. The whole thing with Dan Fawcett being murdered, my mother dying, and Dan McCafferty passing away made us both realize how fragile life really is. You never know what the future holds, and no one has a mirror to look around life's corners. I've worked my whole life to enjoy a few of the spoils-so this is it.

Lynda isn't coming but we're planning a few trips this year already anyway. When we're in Germany in September she'll be coming along. The day after the gig the band will be returning home to Canada, while Lynda and I will be heading off to see Lynda's sister Yvonne, brother-in-law Peter, and niece Sophia. We've been to Cyprus before-one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited.

Now if we can just get another date in Barcelona! YAH!
