Hey man, nice to meet you. Didn't you say once you worked in a music store on Michigan Ave where you sold trumpets.? That would put you at 410 S. Michigan.You can run but you can't hide. 

I boycotted this site for a few years, but your posts got me out of my funk. As Frank Zappa said, music is life. 

Hmmm, no actually, he didn't say that, so I said it on his behalf. I think he'd be okay with that, though.
