The other day my husband, Ian Gardiner - who used to play bass with Burton Cummings of the Guess Who - sent a little note to Burton on his Myspace page. Yesterday, Burton mentioned it in one of his blog posts.
Ian told me to go to Burton's Myspace page and read about Burt's first night in LA when he hung out with Jim Morrison. I did. Good story. Then I read his post "Friends of Mine," which mentions my husband, only to find some of Burton's fans commenting that they thought my husband "had passed."
Nope. Ian hasn't passed (shiver). He's alive and doing fine... except for the hell I put him through.
