So here it is the WTIM of 2016 – We have to thank all of our friends for mak­ing our year a great one. A lot of notes have drifted over the staves and out into the at­mos­phere … Un­for­tu­nately the fi­nal days of 2015 seemed to be an omen, with the pass­ing of Lemmy Kilmis­ter, for what was to lie ahead for the Rock Com­mu­nity in 2016. This year we said good-bye to David Bowie, Glenn Frey, Keith Emer­son, Prince, Leonard Co­hen, Leon Rus­sell and Ge­orge Martin. While their phys­i­cal bod­ies may be gone, the pro­found im­pact all of these mu­si­cians made in the mu­sic in­dus­try will live for­ever in the vinyl grooves of their record­ings and the hearts of mil­lions of fans. No one knows ex­actly what 2017 will bring. We can hope, but never know. With that in mind try to do things the way you want, the first time. Give the folks around you the ben­e­fit of the doubt. Think about what you say, be­fore you say it and tem­per, if pos­si­ble the neg­a­tive or hurt­ful out­bursts. Prac­tice hard and play like you mean it. Mu­sic is a per­sonal jour­ney and your per­son­al­ity is re­flected in the notes you play, whether it’s your mu­sic or some­one else’s, en­joy the jour­ney. You don’t have to share with ev­ery­one or any­one the feel­ing is the same when you feel the mu­sic move you. It’s a gift en­joy it. Wishes for health and hap­pi­ness go out for ev­ery­one in the New Year and may it be filled with mu­sic.

Do you want to see your band or venue listed here at WTIM send an email to tdi­et­t­er­ick@21stcen­tu­ry­media.com with the par­tic­u­lars (at least 2 weeks in ad­vance) and we’ll get it out there.

Kim & Paul will be at Mack­eys (for­merly The Fly­ing Dog).
