No Regrets Living & Drumming

On tour with the Zeppelin2 show. Shows going great. Saw an old friend/fan the other night in Bloomington In. He’s seen us about 5 times. In different cities.

So yesterday I made $24 in about 2 hours. Finally got the cops called….Ok, he was a park ranger. Found a sweet (or so I thought) spot at an intersection in Golden Gate Park. Lots of double decker tour busses cheering as they drove by. Right about the time I was physically running out of steam, up rolled the cops. I shouldn’t even call this guy a cop. He was super nice. Like a park ranger should be. He politely walked up to...
