Best put in his own words… In 2003 during Hurricane Isabelle in Hampton, Va where I am from and was living then, I was driving up the road my car spun out, hit the car head on and ejected. Truck behind me, who was my best friend, didn’t see me ejected and ran over my head. My eyeball fell out and was hanging by the cord laying on the road next to me unconscious. The ambulance tried to revive me but couldn’t, declared me dead and the newspapers the next day said I was dead because they put their clamps up and declared me dead. After they did that, putting their equipment up and declaring me dead, I just came back to life on my own but was still unconscious. I was in a coma for a month and then rehab for a couple more months recovering. At the time I was in engineering in community college and I was gonna transfer to a bigger college after two years.

BluesMan Don ¬ The Devil I Know
BluesmanDon! It’s a High NRG Bluesy Folk based Rock that honours the music’s roots but with a twist . His music is honest and heartfelt sourcing from his blue collar roots as a mechanic, lumberjack and paving equipment operator way up North in Calgary, Canada. It’s the kinda Blues music that you would hear on a Friday night down at your local Pub, real, honest and relatable.
” I’m blue collar. I grew up poor. I didn’t have nice things like the other kids did. I would look at other families and wonder why I couldn’t have the life that they had. Even now as an adult living my middle-class life (I’m about to turn 40), I look at what I have and how far I’ve come and sometimes I feel like I could lose it all so easily. This is a hard blues about trying to keep up with the expectations of society. We run a perpetual rat race, working ourselves to death for other people’s perceptions of who we are. You need to have nice cars, a big house, fancy vacations, designer clothes. Can you afford it? Do you deserve it? Is it real? Or are you just a fraud trying to keep his head above the water? Am I really the man I show the world, or am still that poor kid going to school in ratty clothes with no lunch money? Maybe we all are. That’s the devil I know.”
