How cool is this?---
If eveything goes according to plan, I'll be playing with the original trio of musicians I started out with in 1964, next Monday, in Long Island, New York. How cool is that?
So nice to have life-long friends!
I'll download our session, if I can.
That's me at the top,in 1976 in the Prince Valiant harcut, (yes I was really super hot!), and that's my guitarist, and songwriting partner, Lou Maresca in the next pic below. You should really try get to know him ladies, he's one potent dude. I'll include pix of our original guitarist George as soon as I can get them.
This last shot is from our 1975 show in Carroll Park, we used to play there every summer. Some long time residents still talk to me about those shows when I visit the old neighborhood.
Update, May 21: We kicked ass! Had a marathon jam of nearly eight hours, and didn't step on each other much. I still can't get over how well it went. If I lived in NYC I'd be able to do this all of the time and play gigs to boot. The only things missing would be my job at Disney and all of the wonderful friends I've made in L.A. But it still gets you thinking.
