    Got to hang for a while with him at the local music store. He's a great guy.

    Played with Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers and the Shades in Calgary in the late 50s with the then future drummer for Three Dog Night.

    Whoa, 73??
    He has aged very gracefully, and has remained sharp and witty.

    Happy Birthday Man!

    And in Bobby Taylor's band he jammed with a guitarist we all might've heard of named Jimi something . . .

    Wow 73!
    Happy birthday Tommy.
    Cheech and Chong were a big part of my yute.
    Was wondering if this was one of Jerry's guitars?

    T.C. was 80 years old back in May.
    TBH he seemed kind of out of it tonight on the Feud. He joked & said he tests his own products.
