“I am so in favor of smoke-free venues. When I play in a smoking venue, afterwards I feel like crap, my voice and throat feels like it is raw. I may as well have been smoking the same cigarette as the man in the front row. I believe that I should not have to jeopardize my health and possibly my life to do what I live and love to do! Make music, and be able to earn a living doing it.”
