Ah come on, Adrian, it’s true. I was nobody. But that don’t matter either, you know? ‘Cause I was thinkin’, it really don’t matter if I lose this fight. It really don’t matter if this guy opens my head, either. ‘Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody’s ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I’m still standin’, I’m gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren’t just another bum from the neighborhood.
OK, so it’s a little melodramatic, but I’m always looking for an excuse to quote “Rocky” 🙂 I have the opportunity to audition for Tait tomorrow. I don’t think I have a realistic shot of getting the gig, knowing how many far more talented guitarists than I live in Nashville, but I’d just like to do well and make a good showing. At the very least I can say I gave it my best shot 🙂 Right now I just want to get it over with, because my fingertips look like ground beef!
Regardless if I get the job or not, next week will be a big one… I close on my house Monday, and Friday will mark a year since my last chemo treatment. I *swear* I’ll write the second part of the cancer story soon. It’s been a very busy summer.
