Mick files for divorce from Emi Canyn, fuming that her relationship with guitarist Chet Thompson in her Alice ‘N Thunderland project went deeper than just band activities. Mick had helped the band a lot, including producing their recordings. Matt Sullivan soon replaces Jeff Dennis on drums, while Danny Wilder replaces Mitch Laney on bass after the two members quit, unhappy with Chet and Emi’s actions. When the Alice ‘N Thunderland CD is eventually released, three different recording sessions can be heard: one produced by Mick and recorded at Chatsworth Studios, a second recorded at Talon and produced by Mikey Davis, and a third session of four songs featuring the new rhythm section of Matt and Danny.
Mick, Emi and Chet had thrown a birthday party for me at Chatsworth Studios, which I later learned Emi felt obligated to throw, as a favor to Chet, not me. Little did I know that lust was brewing between Mick's wife and my boyfriend. It is my belief that this was the start of Chet and Emi's affair...or sometime right before this. Mick was really cool and we bonded over his gorgeous sunburst Gibson mandolin. Mick is an extremely smart man. I liked him very much and Emi should have NEVER underestimated this quiet genius.
I have never been able to tell anyone about this extremely painful period in my life. I have had to keep silent about an affair that a man I truly loved had behind my back. AND, what is worse, during the start of Chet's "friendship" with Emi, Emi and I talked and I thought we were friends but she later basically laughed about it. It was never her intent to be my friend - just to pretend friendship in order to get close to my boyfriend! - but I could not see the thoughts she held secret. I felt emotionally kicked in the stomach.
Well, I find myself not being able to say anything more... It's just nice to be able to talk about it finally. I've had to hold all of that inside since 1991. I wanted to talk for closure but I think Chet doesn't talk to me because I remind him of his guilt. But that is okay now. I don't need to reconcile the issue anymore. I'm better having someone like that entirely gone from my beautiful life, don't you think? Peace out.
