While succumbing to prostate cancer, the Hospice Nurse encouraged me to continue playing my music for Fred. He passed peacefully while listening.

Hi Don,

This is one heck of a toe tapper! It's a great listen. I'm pretty sure Fred would have enjoyed all the music that you brought to your shared room.

I offer my condolences to you on your loss.

One of the dangers of being male is prostate cancer. Generally it's a slow growing cancer and many men die of old age long before the cancer creates any issue. Fortunately these days, if the aggressive forms of the cancer are caught it time, they can be attended to.

Nearly two years ago, I was diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer that had a Gleeson Score of 9 (as far as I know, the index only goes to 10). I had no symptoms at all and even my PSA count only indicated a 1 in 4 chance of my having the cancer. I completely understand how easy it would have been for Fred not to have his cancer picked up in time.

I strongly encourage all guys who read this, and who have not been tested for prostate cancer recently, to go and get it done. There's a ton of joy in catching this cancer in its early development. If the prostate is removed before there is significant damage to the urethra or bladder, the outcome is usually excellent.

Thanks for posting the song! I really enjoyed the energy you brought to my excited feet smile

All the best,
Noel

I've lost many musician friends to prostate cancer including several BIABers who had inspired many of us to persevere in our musical journey with this amazing software. Interestingly, they were always the first to toss the lifeline to us fledglings.

As breast cancer is to our female friends, prostate cancer is to us males.

My dear friend of 60 years, Mike Auldrige lost his long and painful battle with prostate cancer a few years ago. Upon learning that BIABer, Howard Tate was terminal, Mike sent him several unreleased tracks that Howard treasured until his death. Mike's love and compassion is how I will always remember him.

Here's Mike stealing an extra Dobro break:

Nina selected two of my BIAB tunes for 'future projects.'

Nina Gerber, guitarist for the late Folk singer-songwriter Kate Wolf (qv) was amazed that I recognized Mike's Dobro on this song of Kate's.

There is something very unique and recognizable about Mike's style that I will not soon forget.

R.I.P., my friend.

My condolences on Fred's passing, friends are hard keep as we get older and and even harder to come by.

I obviously didn't know Fred but assume he like up-beat picken n' grinen tunes - if so I know he would have loved that tune!
