“By the grace of God I have been clean and sober, one day at a time, since October 21, 2007. Daily AA meetings keep me on the straight and narrow. I don't argue with myself, I just get there. Alcoholics Anonymous is the priority in my new life. I am a responsible man, here to be of service to all my friends and family. Sending strength and love to all. Rock 'n' roll!!”
