Harvey Myers can’t remember a time he didn’t have a guitar with him. In the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, he was one of those kids, ubiquitous in every town, who could – and did - play and sing Neil Young, James Taylor and Cat Stevens songs into the late night. All was right with the world.

A stint in the Navy reinforced Myers’ love of performance, as he entertained his shipmates.  His rock ‘n’ roll band, Destiny’s End, performed on land in Subic Bay, Australia and the Fiji Islands.

Myers considers Roger Waters’ “Comfortably Numb” his signature song because the Pink Floyd chestnut has one-of-a-kind personal meaning. A freak accident at the age of 38 left him with severe head, neck and shoulder injuries. As a result, Harvey Myers lived in excruciating pain – unrelieved by surgery or medication – for more than a decade.

He came out of it in 2006, thanks to a new naturopathic procedure known as NeuroCranial Restructuring. Within days, he was 90 percent pain-free. And grateful. “Music,” he says, “has been my recovery vehicle.”  He sings with the voice of a man who’s been let out of a cage – thankful for the cool breeze, and the feeling of sun on his shoulders again.  “I pretty much always have a positive attitude,” he explains with a wink and a smile. “I mean, after surviving that and recovering, who’s got time to be down?”
