Lastly, thank you to Joe Terry of the Poison Control Center who selflessly worked so hard for three guys he barely knew in a band that wasn't his own. Joe, if you ever read this blog, know that you will forever be an honorary member of Fishboy (and most likely every HHBTM band ever.)

Sorry if I missed anyone! We hope to see you all again soon!

love,
Fishboy

You still have my spare key which I guess cements the fact that you are all welcome any time. Seriously though, come back soon!
