That's not her on the picture cover.
Moosehead is real pretty.
I’ve performed at Geno’s literally over a 100 times in the last 20 years in probably 20 different bands.
It used to be in a basement on Brown St, and it moved to it’s current location back in 05 I think. I even had a girlfriend who tended bar there for several years back i the early 00’s.
Back in my drinking days I practically lived there. Since putting the bottle down I’ve only gone there to play or watch Rock shows.
I’ve even acted in a few plays that were put on their stage.
My last gig there before the lockdown was playing Lux Lives back in February.
Since the world ended last March, it’s been closed of course. The owner Geno Jr has sold it to some other folks. I have no idea what the new regime will do with it. They claim they’re gonna keep it the way it is, let’s hope that’s true!
Here we are playing a show last New Years Eve:
Eugene Lockhart, former middle linebacker of the Cowboys, Patriots, and Gamblers, is from Crockett, TX. He was several years older than me, so I never knew him. But I went to school with his brothers. Claude Riley (nicknamed The Crockett Rocket) played college basketball at Texas A & M, and was drafted by the 76ers, but never played in the NBA. He played professionally in the Spanish and Italian leagues. I see him in the grocery store every once in a while. And Kenny Rogers' mom, Miss Lucille, is buried here in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery.
Lots of celebs live or have a place here in my township , and I've met a few along the way as an Animal Control Officer
Bill Murray ( I've met , you can keep him )
Di Di Conn ( also met and there should be a 1000 more people in the world like her , she's a sweetheart )
Chuck Barris ( deceased , but I've met his widow )
Al Pacino ( I actually gave him a summons once )
Cheta Reveria ( sweetheart )
Charlie Callas ( I put him in the category with Robin Williams and Jonathan Winters
Tom Chapin ( Harry Chapin's brother )
Don't forget the ghost of John André.
I know, I know... the non-history buffs are saying, "Who?"
The Doobie Brothers (and later, Micky Dolenz) lived in my Mother's area, where she was a bank teller. Sometime in the mid-late 1970s Mom came home and said that one of the Doobies had come into her bank and she served him. I asked which one, and she said it was "the one with the long hair". I said, "Thanks, Mom, that really narrows it down."
So, it would probably come down to either Patrick Simmons or Jeff "Skunk" Baxter if I had to guess... they had the longest hair in the group.
You've been to my town ? Seems you're well aware . Lots of Revolutionary War history in my town of Tappan , New York . I'll be at the "76 House Restaurant " tonight . That's where they tried / jailed Andre . They hung him to a tree just up the street too but buried in England ,

@tartanphantom While at the '76 House tonight , they have my favorite home-brewed , "76 Ale . I'll have one for ya ....cheers
It took me a second to figure out how I knew that name - Turn: Washington's Spies. After reading that Wikipedia article, it would seem that his portrayal on that show was not very faithful. They played him as quite dastardly, downright moustache twirling if he had a moustache. He sounds more like a guy with whom you'd like to have an Armagnac.
Christina Aguilera went to my high school (many years after I graduated) in Pittsburgh. Prior to her, I was the most famous North Allegheny HS graduate.
I had heard that some guy in my high school became a Gretsch-Talk moderator and is still the coolest kid in the cafeteria
They weren't famous but two of my aunts lived in Old Orchard Beach.
I’ve never even been to NY, so you must be mistaken.
I wuz just gonna say...
Yes. I was very young, but I've been there. I lived in Berkeley Heights NJ for about 3.5 years as a child-- my dad was working in Manhattan at the time. He was a big history buff, and it kind of rubbed off on me. My family spent most of our vacations jaunting about New England visiting historical sites. If it's a significant Revolutionary War site between Virginia and Maine, then I've probably been there... including the DeWint house-- (Washington's headquarters).
Sorry, not familiar with Shanks Village, since it came after the Revolution.
Next project, Adventures in Sardineland.
I'm totally picturing a bizzare theme park.
Have you ever seen Cloudy with a chance of meatballs?
Whoa he looked like a 40 year old psycho in high school!
He was very mature for his age.
