    Yeah it's a tough choice and you would have thought I would have
    learned my lesson 20 years ago when stereotypical band chemistry
    things got all screwed up with similiar circumstances. I'm gonna
    commit to this and see what happens anyway. If the egos stay in
    check, factionalism doesn't rear its ugly head and a million other
    things (which don't necessarily have to be mentioned in this thread)
    fail to materialize it could be really fun.

    I just want to be made aware of cool song choices. One song I found
    by happenstance was a tune sung by Bryan Adams and Bonnie Raitt called
    "Rock Steady". I don't know who wrote it and much less don't care,
    but we may elect to cover it and put our own spin on it which is what
    it's all about eh?

    If she's good, you will know. There will be no question about it.

    Of course, then she'll be upmarket from ya, so it won't
    be a problem for long.
