    1. A life lived. An inspiration to me since I first heard demo versions of "Freight Train" and "You Don't Know Me" (how I had this tape is another tale!). After seeing SDH in 1987 at the I-Beam on Haight St. in San Francisco, my car was hit from behind and totaled. A memorable night, a lifetime experience and I am proud to know the man.


    2. Growing up in Austin, the Dicks were telephone pole poster vernacular and watching them go in and out of Raul's from the Conan's pizza next door. Then, I finally got fortunate enough to see them live in my senior year of high school. They may have been playing in town from SF, with the Butthole Surfers - not totally sure. Anyhow, it's cool reading about Gary's interesting life. So glad he's found some peace. Thanks, Brother Gary.
