Lots of love for TC. I've played with him a few times. Sadly, he recently suffered a heart attack, but the word I got is that he's recovering. Hell of a fun guy to chat with if you can also speak German, French and Latin.

But like said above I made a post about the whole thing before! :smile:

Seriously, though. It was pretty cool to see him on that first east coast tour before we even knew that Keith and Donna were gone. That Billerica show was tons of fun!

What does this mean?
It's a small suburb/town near me that I really doubt the GD ever played, especially in 1979 or later. It must be a different Billerica that he's talking about.

Wow, sure enough! I'm surprised they played a high-school hockey rink that late in their careers, but I guess it was a last-minute booking to fill a hole in the schedule. Must have been awesome to be there!

I don't want to bash Vince or anything (RIP) because I'm sure he was a great guy, but what was jerry thinking when they picked him? I heard an estimated prophet from 1991 and Jerry is going in the end solo and I hear vince come in with this horrible sounding trumpet patch COMPLETELY over powering Jerry.. I wonder what Rob Barraco (sp?) was doing at the time, he would have been great match for them.

My friend from Retro Linear is working on Robs Fender Rhodes which was actually Brent's that he recorded and gigged live with.. I'll try to get some pictures if he lets me!

This IS really funny if you've ever been there.
There's a recording on archive.org but I seem to remember the audience clapping along nonstop, which made it hard to listen to.


Hey, "White Punks on Dope" just came on the radio! Vince's finest hour.
