    A slow passage would teach us more about your sound. Appreciate the effort, nonetheless.

    KT , if you read the entire history of these two gents, it wasn't pleasant in their latter years.

    Most people's lives in later years go down hill --- your not going to win a triathlon after age 40 unless you win the age group category

    I'm forwarding this to "Trombone Shorty" -- explaining he is cutting his career short

    Whatever the case, I think we can agree it's not necessary?

    Sometimes I do not understand the devils advocate. They leave out half of the story to justify bullshit.

    It IS a basic problem to puff the cheeks. That doesn't mean that we can't overcome the issue - at least for a while, but we don't have to advocate things that make life MUCH tougher - especially before we have knowledge that there is a medical issue and the player has no choice.

    Why can't we just keep the issue simple and recommend safe stuff to people that we don't know?
