Rediscovered: Floyd, the Big 8, Still Straight

On January 22nd a big bash was held to celebrate Floyd Salas hitting 80 years of age — his actual birthday falls on the 23rd, but people were confident he’d make it another day, so the party was on. For his 75th birthday I took along a copy of the DVD of Kingpin, the mini-series Floyd wrote for, and got his tag line “75 and still alive” as part of the inscription. This time I hauled out one of my extra copies of Tattoo the Wicked Cross and Floyd put the pen to it with “I’m at the Big 8 and I’m still straight.”
