Seek and ye shall find or it’ll find you.

The more old friend/musicians I reconnect with on Facebook, the more I try to remember and find. This past weekend after looking to no avail for the first guitar player I ever worked with, I let it go. Today I received an email from MySpace with a message from him! Now this is a guy I haven’t seen or communicated with in over 30 years. Our very first gig in 1972 was at the Old Port Inn in Avila Beach, California with Doug on electric guitar and me singing through his amp. Ah, the good ol’ days.


Although you can only see pieces of his guitar & a bit of his beautifully long & blond hair behind me, the picture is from a 1973 gig with him (& my bro on drums) at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, the birthplace of my musical career. He painted as well and the fabulous JBL speaker cabinets (de rigueur for the day) reflected his artistry.

Once again the powers of the internet, synchronicity and Godincidences abound. Seek and let it go and enjoy the magic, not always 2 days later but it will come.
