im glad to see john is doing something good such as benefit shows.  however, i wouldnt call them kicks. theyre for a good cause. and as far as being paid for it that would be unfathomable as they are to help and serve. and i am glad to see that john is doing something worthwhile for a change.

 Would you think JM would be amiable to sign my Gas Tank on a 91 Harley after the show. Been a Fan since he first started. Always on K-SHE back in the day in St. Louis. He's partial to Motorcycles. Could you put in a good word for me. Or provided you ,JM and manager, read blogs daily. My Harley is my pride and joy. And your American Spirit would be represented proudly and cherished by the honor of your signing. Looking forward to benefit and show!!!
                                              Rock and Blues On JM
                                                  Regards, Barry
