One of the gutsier performances I've seen, I built up a lot of respect for D-Jax this weekend.

He did a great job under trying circumstances - and his dad had the best seat in the house to watch him!

I'm not saying this to sound cynical - but I really don't find it "courageous" to play under those circumstances. From my own experience with my own dad's prolonged death, I played a gig in a band the day he died - it wasn't courageous. It was a relief to have something else to focus on, even for just a couple of hours.

In that situation, I think it's a real blessing for Jackson to have an outlet and something else to focus on whereas he's been preoccupied with a horrible situation in his family.

It was great that he played and that he played well. I feel for his family, and it brings a little smile to my face knowing that the family admist their grief got to watch Darrell have a terrific game.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.
