|Tex-Mex King Discovered in Head of Clutter|
Mexico Mike Nelson a friend of mine and probably the best authority on traveling around Mexico, just wrote a book called “Stop Clutter From Stealing Your Life.” I was featured in one chapter for being a pack rat to the extreme of extremes. This is so true. I just can’t throw anything away.
I have a storage unit that you could drive a bus into that I haven’t even looked at since 1994. It is so full. I have clothes in it that I wore when I was 14. Also every stage outfit, I have ever worn. Every magazine clipping, posters, tapes and you name it. I have it. For awhile, I had a serious cactus collecting addiction. I still kinda do. Members of my band have been known to wake up with a giant cactus in bed with them. Two years ago I brought 27 iceboxes to my house to figure out how to recycle them. I have now stacked them like giant bricks and stuccoed over them. When a glass breaks I save the glass, thinking I’ll somehow use it later. I pickup the stuff that nobody else wants. I have stopped buying newspapers. I just read them on the internet. Did I say, I’ve saved every paper I’ve bought since 1982. I guess I’ve been on the road too long. However, I am not giving up my broken down 1965 Greyhound tour bus. NO WAY JOSE!!
