Sidewalk Junkie

Gabe had a way with words. Something I don't usually have. He mentioned this was part of a collection of scribbles he wanted to make into the epic of the sidewalk junkie. I don't know if that ever happened, or got to see other parts. He had mentioned making it into a song, but didn't know how. I was a little surprised when I first started to get to know him, that he liked punk rock. He even said he'd like to have tattoos like Lars from Rancid once. Well, I can't write very well, I can't sing, but I can play music decently. So I took his Sidewalk scribble and turned it into this.

Here's to you Gabe. I hope this was somewhere in your vision for the song. I hope you're happy now.

What would have been the first part of an Epic Of The Sidewalk Junkie.




  1. I miss Gabe. The world is missing out on all the things he could have created.

  2. God, Kevin, I don't know what to say. I catch myself thinking about him at random times - I hear someone with his Southern drawl, or just read something that reminds me of something we talked about.

    Thanks for this. It'll be something I can also remember him by. I think this is exactly the vision Gabe would have had for this song.

    Peace <3

  3. Bro, you put some serious work into that one!!! Good job all the way around. :) - jeff

  4. Kev,

    I'll bet Gabey loves it!!!
