Okay...here's the full story...I'm here!!!

Right.
I have been in Rehab because naughty me got hooked on what we call alcohol. That's that watered down stuff you get in that place...er..dammit...ah yeah, a pub.

Beer drove me crazy enough to nearly end my marriage, loose my kids and drop the odd drug, so it was time to sort my sorry, pathetic ass out. And being an alcoholic is one thing to be ashamed of, but sitting there in the "sessions" with kids, and I mean 13 year olds who haven't even begun puberty was even worse.

Anyway, I stepped fourth into this brave new wrold two weeks ago to come home and find that my little wifey had bought me a beutiful, new, sexy Fender Electro-Acoustic and some extra guitar lessons Wink

)

Everybody around me has been great about this, and it really goes to show that anyone can fall into this trap of beer and abuse whether you're signed or unsigned, so let myself be a little lesson to everyone. Stay clean, clear-headed and do what y' do best.

To ImL:
Rehab guys think you rock. One guy drove himself nuts on Autobahn Laughing

To Alek:
Betcha still roaming this planet, arn't y' Laughing

To Unproject:
Already said it, but peace, my friend.

To Mr and Mrs Minuses and the mini minuses:
Glad to see this place is as strong as ever. And Ron, thanks for a little bit of salvation in the tome of music that's been built here.

To everyone else:
Muuuuuuuuunnnnnccccccccchhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Laughing


Peace.
(P.S.
Evidently I didn't find God....Although I did find a nurse called Louise who had the biggest pair of t*ts I've ever seen Laughing )

hey Will

Welcome back ol' bud
so good to hear from you again and it's bloody brilliant you asked for help at the right time. We don't appreciate what we got till it's nearly gone and you are the man for sharing this with us all. That takes guts. ...
...and that guitar ! ! Your wifey, too, is the man Laughing The Brooksys and Bookets are the men! ( I kill myself sometimes)

Now all you gotta do is fill up your home page with your music ...

Will's back and keep away from Pingu land

Thats some heavy stuff to share - but congrads for going through it all and coming out a better person!
Glad you could turn it around, coz ive seen a few friends head down that path and a few still haven't come back no matter how much i miss them or try to help them.
The biggest and hardest step is wanting to help yourself. well done!

Yo ImL you NZ King of all things that go ping, ping plonk. Brooksy and Bookets indeed Laughing But sorry to say that I won't be filling up any homepages cause, not for a very long time at least, I won't be recording at all.

And just to let you know my wife was a man, but I had to save up for that change Laughing

Watch out Pingu, your ass is mine Evil or Very Mad

Support Alek:

Needed; a huge satellite dish
Plenty of leads
One giant server (we could steal Ron's while he's not looking Laughing )
A large monitor and a keyboard

Donations are to be given to the Banana Communication Fund c/o Alek, banana king. Laughing
