How much do you miss hanging out with your buddy Brandon... I heard he's a pretty cool guy!
Fortunately Brandon's not dead, even though the way you phrased your question had me a bit concerned,lol
I think about him pretty often actually. he really helped me out when I was having a tough time, he lent me his guitar when all my gear was stolen. I'm super thankful for that and a lot of other things he's helped me with, he's a great guy. God bless him.
