I played in bands when I was a high schooler. I went to Vietnam in 1968 and returned from that war a damaged soul. I lost my desire to play music again.
Flash forward 40 years and under the care of Doctor Tom Neylan of the Veterans Administration,Ft Miley,San Francisco, California. I started to resolve my issues with PTSD. We talked about my youth and how I loved being in bands. Tom encouraged me to go for it again,that it would be great for my recovery. I have worked so hard on my self the last 30 years including getting clean and sober. I took a chance and started lessons on Bass guitar.
