Q: HEY! Your guitar fella was a real A#$H@&E! I asked him for his autograph last night after the show, and he went indoors and brought out a signed piece of toilet paper, wadded it up, and threw it at me
A: Dear Anonymous... I am so very sorry. I was not aware of this situation and when or how it occurred, it has also taken me time to truly absorb your statement but, I wish to make this right. Would you please contact me directly? My email address is: obikaye@gmail.com. Let's talk.
