“DAVE CASH, FRANK FALISE, TOMMY SCHOBERG and ALAN SMITH all stopped by and it was a lot of great fun to relive his life.

“Instead of handing out little cards we came up with this … the front is a photo from his A&M days in the 1970’s … and the back was a shot of the POWELL FAMILY at a PETER FRAMPTON concert … I’m the good looking kid flashing the peace sign.”
