Good Tuesday to all my friends, fans, freaks and familia. I  have received a plethora of e-mails and phone calls from everyone wanting to know if I had died, retired or went on a killing spree. Now, I don't have all the answers but let me pass on what I do know.

On my birthday, June 30th, I was told by the doctor that I had a growth in my right lung about the size of a golf ball. After taking 3 or 4 more x-rays they noticed it was not only in my right lung but also in my lower spine. When I asked him what it was, this is what I heard him say:

So needless to say I have been in and out of the hospitals for the last 3 months. I have lung cancer, spine cancer and a spot on my liver but I told them to take a closer look at the liver because it's probably just the Jack Daniels logo.

I have already started my radiation treatment on my lung and spine and I hope to find out more about when the chemo is going to start.

Now for the Kyphoplasty.

I cannot make any promises when I will finally return to rock the Southwest, but I will tell you that I am working my azz off to get back to you!I Last, but not least, I want to personally thank every one of you for your prayers and all your kind words!
