Your crowds were never disappointed with whatever you brought on stage. Now that you're playing at home ... just enjoy the plethora of sounds available on the PC, and trigger them with any old thing that you like ... just don't try to sell us all on how much you love it. We don't believe you.

I was very hurt reading this post Dave especially from YOU...
lately you have been only negative to anything I post just like a few others which I won't mention but know exactly who THEY are.
That said I think a long awaited back out from SZ is what
I really need. If anyone needs help just message me.
My time is done here, I'll leave you with this.....
I wish you all well and good luck in your musical journeys.

There are times when you will only hear the (sometimes painful) truth from someone who actually CARES for you and is genuinely concerned for your well-being. Enablers are not always your friend. A friend is someone who, upon seeing a pattern of potentially destructive behavior, cares enough to risk a fracture in the relationship and speak up. I think Dave's observations and attempt at intervention is on point and, given the history between the two of you, well-intentioned. If you think he's off-base, then fine, thank him for his concern and move on. Sharing his feelings honestly doesn't make him less of a friend. JMO. AND, if all you want IS that 'perfect' keyboard, let me know when you find it; I'll buy one too smile. Wishing you only the best.

Come on Donny. You have too many friends to bail out. Sometimes, well intended razzing is taken too seriously, or given without thought of a personal affront. You have known us for over twenty years, in some cases.

You are one of my best forum buddies and I don't want you to leave.

Donny, maybe a break IS what you need ...
Get your new KB - whatever it may be - and then come back and show us how great it sounds ...
Not "Good bye" but "I'll see you later" ...

Changing a routine (retirement in this case) is difficult. I keep playing because the consecutive days at home become awful lonely.

Donny, at least play a few times a month and enjoy your different keyboards (who cares what it is). You are a master singer and player and the folks deserve to hear you (even if you're in a funk).

p.s. You helped me in to this business, always grateful for.

and Gary...you were just as instrumental in helping me along. We tend to forget the good people and dwell on the ones that are dissing us...(they are out there!) A shame - jealousy.
