    Fitzy! ... met in college like 30 years ago. Greatest guy that ever lived. He's coming out to visit in a few weeks and I'm psyched! Going to spend a couple days riding quads in the NF.

    I know this is corny but fuck it: my wife is my best friend.
    I'm with her almost 24 hours a day. We hike together; we both collect vinyl records; we both read; we like to vacation in different places; we both love road trips.
    She's more organized than me.
    Keeps me in line.
    Calms me down.
    Tolerates my rants, forgives me for shitty stuff I do.
    She saved my fucking life. Twice.
    When we first met she drew me right out of a rat hole existence.

    My other best friend was a fellow record collector, radio personality, guitar player, and whore monger.
    I knew him long before my wife came into my life. Known him since high-school.
    We'd talk constantly on the phone.
    Share our latest vinyl finds.
    Together we saw The Dolls, Iggy & the Stooges, The Cramps, hung out with Alex Chilton, lots of other people.
    Drinking a lot. Drugging some.

    I guess it was 16 years ago, he cut a few records with some name people.
    Brought the songs by our house in Midtown Memphis to let us hear them.
    His originals.
    I was totally freaked out by how good his shit was.
    His guitar playing was amazing.
    Fluid, fast, melodic. Jingle-jangle mid-1960s garage rock kind of stuff.
    Then he kind of vanished.

    My wife & I didn't hear from him often.
    Sometimes come across him looking for records in vintage record stores.
    He never seemed to have money to buy the shit he was interested in.
    Wouldn't let us buy stuff for him.
    He just retreated -became sort of remote.
    Not in a snotty, aloof too-hip-for-the-room kind of way, just distracted.

    We moved from Memphis & came up here.
    Didn't tell anyone I knew back there we were leaving but I called him to tell him bye.
    No answer.

    Last year a mutual friend & another good guy I've known for over 30 years called & told me our friend had had cancer but never told anyone.
    5-6 years no one heard from him.
    Never sought treatment. Joined one of those mega-churches instead. A big Baptist concern in Memphis.
    He died without ever speaking to any of his friends.

    His religious zealot parents gave all of his priceless collection of vintage guitars, amps, all his highly valuable vinyl records, and vintage paperbacks to a hack eBay seller to dispose of.

    I was twelve, but I'm pretty sure most kids start earlier.
