Anything other than that… If only me were going to hit the guitar with my right hand and my left hand in a chord and tell you stories, I wouldn’t cancel a show.
The musician said on Instagram on Tuesday that the concert was “another exercise for the soul and love” amid difficult circumstances.
He said, “Thank you very much to our old friend #JJJohnson for sitting down at the drums to make some of the group feel loud and proud. “Thank you all for handling the punches. I’m more sure than ever that I have the biggest fans around.
