I'm happy with being me, but it is nice to know there is another Alex Cook slugging it out on the battlefield for interesting music, so if there is a reader here in the Halifax, NS area, belly up to the bar and buy a gin and tonic or Stella Artois (assuming that all the Alex Cook's in the world have the same favorite drinks. Actually, you may want to ask...) for the drummer on my behalf.
