    "These gigs were all before 'Who's Sorry Now?' was released. I remember one time having to do as many as eight shows all in one week-end for the whopping pay of $150 -- where was I gonna spend it all? I also remember I had to type up these contracts myself because my manager couldn't afford his own secretary at the time!"

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
