  That brings me to a question I've had for a long
  I just can't imagine how a 70-something musician
playing and traveling to 160 gigs a year (more
recently the figure has been given as 200),  has the
time and energy to not only post here so prolifically,
but to search the web, it seems daily, for articles,
reviews, and websites of interest to the rest of us.
You must have a gem of a wife who handles all the
errands and chores and paperwork of daily life. Or
maybe she is happy to have you spending all your time
at the computer or at gigs and away from her? 
  I have trouble playing twice a week and finding the
time and energy just to read YOUR many posts.
