  3. I wonder if a musician of Tommy's incredibly high caliber has to fight off Groupies constantly trying to get too close to him for comfort?

    Tommy's a REALLY classy guy. I wonder if he's even capable of giving a bad performance or doing any kind of dirty deed?

    Has anyone ever interviewed his wife? The two of them together? Do they have kids? Does he travel with his family?

    Tommy may seem very down-to-earth, but in many ways he a very special person –– almost like MOZART. Such people are rare and precious, and deserve the most tactful, considerate handling.

    He seems very happy. I hope that's true.

    1. Franco, Tommy Loves his groupies. Tommy holds a Master Class for any people wanting to learn how he plays before every concert. He loves interacting with them. Parts of those are on youtube.

      Even a bad Tommy performance (I don't know of any) is a great one. The notes just flow like hot butter.

      He is married and has two daughters with his first wife. Don't know if current wife travels with or not. I would think she would have to since he plays 300 concerts each year around the world. They'd never see each other. Since he loves to perform I'd say he's happy. He thinks of himself as a John Wayne type character.

  4. Mayor Mike Bloomberg you are the only guy that can save us from Trump, so on the debate stage I want you to say the following:

    Every time they attack you with all the shit you've said over the years against women, blacks, fags, wage earners, the poor, the elderly, kittens, and bunnies, all the shit you put down, say the following:

    When you are of the mind and beliefs of Republicans, your gut forces you to go in deep and stay there with all the negative baggage you can inflict. You are there to inflict harm, cause chaos and to dismantle what is right and just. That was me. I am guilty and I am humbled by that guilt. But my eyes and my heart has opened and I have seen for the last 3 years a party that I once embraced, become something I am now ashamed of. If we are not allowed opportunity to change, to redirect our focus for what is right and just, to extend an olive branch and want better for ourselves and this nation, than we are just as corrupt and unjust as Trump. I am here to beat Trump, to give us back a country that is slowly slipping into the darkest days of our history and I believe only I and I alone can do that. I know Trump and Trump knows me...Ladies and Gentlemen, I am the one person Trump won't fuck with, Give me your votes and I'll take back this country, lock that motherfucker up and bring us back to Where Obama left is.
