I Fight Dragons

Peg-Leg Flash

Hiya, Packy here.

Tomorrow, February 28, is my dad's birthday. He would have turned 62.

In honor of him I would like to share with you a childhood story I wrote a few years ago. I apologize if it's a bit long for your ADD internet-surfing tastes, but I thought I'd put it up here anyway.

But first, 2 pieces of Packy/I Fight Dragons trivia...

1. This story is the reason Chad and Dave were The Flash in the IFD Justice League arrangement. As you may or may not know, when the band was first conceived I was originally slated to be the drummer. It turns out I played on the EP but didn't end up joining the band - but during the band's formation and conceptual stages I did request to be Flash, in honor of this story. When Dave took over on drums he (and subsequently Chad) inherited the Flash character, and to this day that's why you see red behind the drum kit.

2. I've been asked a few times about the "21" under the strings on my guitar. 21 was my dad's lucky number. While he never got to see me play with IFD, I at least get to take some of his cosmic energy on stage with me every night. I hope he enjoys the view.

Anyway, without further ado, here is the story of PegLeg Flash (.pdf format).

Enjoy, and please don't smoke,
Packy
