jimmy japes....

richie egan a.k.a "jape" a.k.a blackbeltjones a.k.a one of the most positive and inspiring humans i have encountered on the face of this earth won the choice music prize last week for his 2008 album "Ritual"... good shit! on accepting his award, egan observed that life in the music industry is getting increasingly difficult for emerging artists.

"It's getting harder to make a living as a musician today but it's a fight you have to fight if it's in your heart," he said.

"It's much better to be a sinking ship after all, rather than a rat jumping off one."

Alright Rich, how are things?? What's the story? I owe you a proper email.

Anyway, I was once almost in a band with Richie Egan... Almost. I chickened out at the last minute.

Good story, right?
