Remembering our many road trips together, cruising, getting stuck, getting lost (on purpose), and especially that epic night when you did your dad's route for the first time and let me ride along! The first dirt bike I ever rode was yours, and I was lucky to survive it while foolishly trying to copy your style. You introduced me to music I never thought I'd like but still love today. The first real guitar I ever played was when you loaned me your Stratocaster and that massive amp. Thanks for the time I got to spend with you, trying to be half as cool, half as manly, and half as good looking!
