“26 years ago I almost lost my life in Memphis… I don’t remember it, but walking backstage into a dark area I feel 10 feet into an orchestra pit. Coma, brain swelling, pregnant newly married wife, no will, and no plan, doctors told her I may never speak, write or do music again. Right before my wife signed papers for them to drill into my brain, Suddenly…….they said I woke up. Last night, 26 years later… I’m back in Memphis. Yeah…He’s real.”
