Good-bye Felix
« on: October 06, 2009, 11:44 AM »
Wesley (aka felix) has requested that his account be deleted here at the Drummer Cafe. Sorry to see him go and have no idea what's up ... other than, like many of us, we need a break from time to time. Personally, I don't think account deletion is the answer, but you've got to do what is best for you.

Anyway ... felix ... I just wanted to thank you for being part of the Drummer Cafe forum all these many years. You were one of the first members to join this community almost eight years ago. I wish you much success in all that you do.

Peace.

That's sad to hear. He made my day when he stopped over for a visit. I wish him the best and hope he sends me an email or calls. Hint, hint....  ;)

Don't do it, brother.  Think about taking a break instead and then come back when you're ready.

I study instructional books to help "ground" my drumming, if i develop chops...so be it.     I'm riding the "Groove Train" out of Chopsville... and enjoying the ride.

Who's going to be the cranky one now?

Bummer. Hope he comes back when he gets whatever it is sorted out.

I never saw Wes as cranky - more like pragmatic and blunt.  My two favorite attitudes.  You always know where you stand with him.  No punches pulled.  :)

I'm shocked and saddened to hear this.  Felix, for me, has been the heart of the cafe since I first joined pretty many years ago.

Wishing Felix the best and looking forward to his return.
