    LOL. Unfortunately 60's music does seem to be remembered as drug-related. Hardly surprising with groups called The Doors and album tracks called Sweet Mary and Comfortably Numb! Mind you, there was Golden Brown in the 70's...

    Well, I was specifically referring to Vanilla Fudge, perhaps the quintessential record to be heavily stoned to, or at least a really big favorite of ours. We played it so much I have all those songs imprinted in my brain forever. Just your mention of the name starts them playing in my mind to a lightshow of drug-related images from back then.

    If it was the second album you must have been REALLY stoned!

    We were too stoned to ever get to the next album. We just listened to the first one over and over cause it was such a heavy trip.

    It seems like i've already responded but...

    I seem to be slipping away from music more and more.

    And who fits musically right into that period ?
    Nucleus from TO, '69, or so.

    Their only album can be listened to on The Foot In Cold Water website under Nucleus Site, and then,The Vault, for anyone interested.

    They were my heroes at the time.
    Check out he interplay of Screamin' JR on guitar and Bob Horne on B3.
    My wife, whose ears I trust, said that my sound is much fuller, richer, more powerful and resonant on this set up.
    ... but really folks... my wife said, " It sounds like a saxophone ".

    Must have been a great day!

    My mother spent the better part of a summer one year tracing our family heritage. Her findings? If I were a dog, I'd be the weirdly-shaped beast whose parentage is so mixed-up that the shelter workers fill in the "breed" blank on my record with "furry." That's always made me feel like a bit of an outsider, since here in Los Angeles practically everyone is within at least a generation or two of being from someplace else, and has the cool ethnic traditions to go with it. But I decided a few years ago that since I'm, well...a bit of everything, I should be entitled to take part in ALL the traditions.

    So, if there's a holiday, I'm THERE, especially those that involve food...

    At age 2 I was The Reading Baby. The neighbor kids would pull me around in a Radio Flyer wagon and I would read traffic signs for passers-by. I think I was paid in cookies. Thus began my life in show business...

    I feel more like I do now than I did when I first got here, but not as much as how I will feel when get to where I was when I left the place I had been.

    I photographed fireworks through a telescope on the first 4th of July after 911, and NASA picked up one of my shots to run on their "Astronomy Picture of the Day" feature (August 9, 2002).


    Here's the photo:





    I got a few emails from NASA scientists about the photo ... it was pretty cool!
