You are gluten-free, sugar-free, and full of more energy than anybody I know. Can you tell us a little bit about your health regiment there?
That’s a good idea, though. I mean, why not? Right?
It’s part of living this life, you know. I said we get seventy, eighty years…who knows how long people live although…yeah, I’m crazy. I sat on the couch for the first forty-two years of my life. I had my son when I was forty. Our only child, we’d been married fifteen years at the time, we’re married twenty-five years now. And it was funny to have a kid at forty because, you know, I was kind of set in my ways. My wife and I, we’d sleep late, we’d, you know, if I had a gig in Bali, we’d go for three weeks and, you know, do the show on the last …
Bye to that!
Goodbye…well, it was, it was a change And here’s this kid, at two and a half he jumps onto a two wheel bike. He’s, you know, he’s done ten triathalons. He’s ten years old, he’s done ten of these kid triathalons.
And when he was two I just started…I thought, “I have to keep up with this kid,” so I started biking, I started running, I started swimming. And I did my first triathalon at forty-five, and I did the XTerra. I did a Tough Mudder…on my fiftieth birthday this year I did a Tough Mudder. It’s a twelve mile run with twenty-six British military obstacles…electricity, climbing walls, going under… But I was a lazy putz! So, I…I’ve just…yeah, the last eight years of my life have been incredible. I have so much energy. I can barely sit still, I know. And I love doing that. I went off gluten. I went off all wheat products. My joints instantly turned to strong and unswollen. I think there’s a lot of wheat and gluten allergy in our country that’s not looked at because the stuff’s everywhere. I’d recommend everyone give it a try for two weeks. No pizza, no beer, no pasta, no cookies. You know, any of that stuff with wheat in it. Hey, two weeks, give it a try and see if you feel better.
