I Question (this ordeal)



 Genre: Progressive Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

A song I co-wrote back in the late 60's with my brother, (aka PeterZ to those of you in the Minneapolis Music scene from the 70's and 80's).

(*ATHA*) means "After the Heart Attack". I had a heart attack in November 2010, a few days after my 58th birthday. I "saw" death, and the the doctors and nurses pulled me back from "him/it".

I decided that I would finish off my tunes here with the vocals as I don't want to leave any unfinished business behind if my heart fails again and there is no trauma team to bring me back. The "other side" was peaceful and terrifying at the same time. The heart attack hit while I was asleep and it was the most terrifying and painful, and at the same time gentle and peaceful, experience of my life. I can't describe the pain and terror I felt. They said I was screaming "take me but leave my family alone".

Thank you GOD for letting me come back this time. That is at least the 3rd Time. Help me find my mission here on earth.

Wow Greg! That is some amazing story. I'm glad you're still here to share your music. Take care of that ticker. I love the 70s vibe in this. This sounds like a lost track by the Edgar Winter group or the Allmans jamming away!

hen I redid the hammond b-3 voicing for this tune I KNEW someone would mention the Allmans. And you will find a couple of my other tunes with the same voicing. As a keyboard player from the 60's-70's, I had 3 favorite sounds which I loved using live on stage and in the studio... A Hammond B3 driving a wood Leslie 145 powered by a 200 watt tube amp, A Mini-Moog or similar for that old fat analog synth sound, and a mellotron or chamberlain tape loop keyboard. With that I could do just about any type of progressive rock I could dream of.

I am the same age as you and often ask God the same question. I feel like a teenager waiting to grow up and find out what my mission is. I agree with Andrew's comments. It has that early 70's sound and kind of hints at the Allman's music. Stay well.

Greg, sheesh. Glad you pulled through, man. New perspectives, no doubt. Take care.

I like this song once it gets going. It has that Whipping Post vibe, but it stands on its own. Happy to have you back at MJ.
