Quote for today...

"Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure." -- Oprah Winfrey

Sometimes we move so quickly in our lives that we forget to slow down. It's so easy to hold on too tight and suffocate ourselves. Every once in a while we need a reminder to slow down and take some deep breaths. We only live this life once so make it all you can but take time to smell the roses too!

A good friend of mine passed away two weeks ago. It's really hard to understand how someone so vibrant and full of life could drop dead of a heart attack. Boom! Gone. I saw him the day before. He was one year younger than me. As we get older we start realizing that life is much shorter than we originally thought. We need to make the most of our life but remember also to breathe and enjoy what we have in front of us.

And while you are slowing down for a minute, let me ask you... how is your music career going? Are you meeting your goals for the year? We are well into the third quarter and before you know it we'll be at year-end. Think about where you are and where you want to be.

Rock on,

Loss of a Great Lead Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter-LYN ZE BOND.

Madalyn you are so right. I am the Drummer for ZE BOND ROCKS and 3 weeks ago I lost my Best Friend/Traveling partner/Guitar player to a massive stroke.
Although our band never got the chance to join Go Girls we were major supporters of Girls that Rock....since we did.

We had been traveling together, playing shows all over and struggling in this industry for the past 4 years. Lyn Ze had been singing & playing music for over 20 years (Lead guitar,vocals & drums). She was very talented & determined to bring her music to the masses. Lyn Ze never gave up on her Dreams and we loved playing to the fans & huge biker crowds all over this wonderful country.

Cherish every moment, you never know what is going to happen.

Life is Rough, Rock Hard!

A Memorial will be held in honor of a Great Musician & Special Friend on Sept 17th in Kissimmee, FL. More info at our website.
