'...And so what does it mean, to live and die and all the things that happen in between? You've had your look into the book...Did you hear, did you see? Now go your way and live today what you've seen in your dream.' 10,000 Days Postscript. Balance and depth mark this album as Fitzpatrick touches on all aspects of the human experience: good and evil, happiness and sorrow, loss and redemption. This album is a backdrop for life. Neither angst ridden nor full of trite happy candy, this is the real thing. With influences ranging from the art rock of Genesis and Kansas to the pop rock sound of Toto and Fleetwood Mac, the music is engaging and varied. You can use it to veg out or keep you going on that long drive. The lyrics pull you, push you, knock you down, and then pick you back up. They'll take you places you never thought to go. They write out of deep experience with life. When not doing the Fitzpatrick band thing, they are doing the Fitzpatrick life thing. Shaun is a Major in the USMC and has been in Iraq (where he was awarded the Bronze Star), Afghanistan, Haiti, and Israel just to name a few of more than 50 countries. He is currently serving our country in Japan. Mike is a Shuttle Flight Controller at Johnson Space Center with over 70 flights under his belt and has had his share of harrowing space experiences. Together they form the nucleus of the rock band Fitzpatrick. Take them home with you today. You won't regret it.
