Jim & Tim, Together at Last

Ever wondered what Dire Straits would sound like if Vince Gill had agreed to join?

    My brother Tim's bassist, Matt "The Finger" Millet, is attending the wedding of Patrick "c.j. sOb" Wellnitz in Poland, so he had to scramble to find a replacement for his show tonight at the Tractor Tavern. Luckily, my Uncle Jim Donahue was available, and will thus add a tasty dash of twang to tonight's performance. Fifty-year-old Uncle Jim has been a fixture on bass with bands like Shadrack and Joe Slick at the Little Red Hen, and his backstage beer-drinking exploits are said to rival Bob Seger's. He welds for a living, raises horses in Lake Stevens, and owns a teal Corvette. In other words, he's the real fuggin' deal. Adding him to my bro's lineup is like adding Vince Gill to Dire Straits, or Hendrix to the Stones. Jim & Tim: One night only. Ballard Ave. might spontaneously combust.
