Whew, That Was A Close One


So, the Fundamental Elements have a fabulous van that transports them from gig to gig. In the past, it has gotten the job done…but barely. The van is a 1991 GMC Compliment. And it’s a classy beast. Oh and did you do the math? It’s 18 years old!

Well, about a week and a half ago The Compliment died. Sad, right? Well, it gets sadder. It died in my driveway. Sure, the boys were all safe here & not stranded on the side of the road in some random place. But…it was in MY driveway. The boys feared that The Compliment had seen her last gig. I feared that The Compliment would be in front of my house forever.

But thanks to a talented mechanic, The Compliment will live on (for now). The Compliment will soon be going home. Say a prayer for Katie & Sheri, it shares it’s time at their homes.

Good bye, Compliment!
