Slow and Steady Wins the Race

We got some encouraging news on Mark today. Provided he has no further complications or setbacks, he has a good chance of recovering fully. It may be a long road, but certainly our Mark has traveled that path before...we believe he will blaze that trail again. If you haven't had a chance to see Mark in ICU at Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, please feel free to pay him a quick visit.


p.s. Here's a picture of the quintessential Mark, taken in the 70's. Isn't it just the perfect shot???

Thanks Vince, for your ongoing support and kind words. Mark is in the hands of excellent doctors within a state of the art medical facility. Mark's vistor's list is a who's who of world-class musicians, and his head nurse Ann is the biggest fan ever. She made a point of googling Mark and reading a bunch of interviews and bio information so she could get to know him better. She does dote on him, which is great. Bless her heart!

I have thought about you often over the years. Having played drums with you in the 60s in Sioux Falls and seeing many of the greatest drummers perform live, I can say with no hesitation you are the best rock drummer and one hell of an inspiration. An old friend from high school just contacted me and sent the website address to this blog. My son now plays drums and I have started again with an electronic set at 50. I speak of you often to him. My life has taken many twists and turns with the paths leading to every corner of the planet. Keep the faith we need you.

With Kindest Regards,
