Hanging with Uncle Dick

Cool.

 

I got to hang out with Tom, the bass player about 3 weeks ago at a party. Not the first time I meet him but the first time we talk longer.

 

The conversation about Classic Rock radio led to Free and Paul Kossoff and he was surprised anybody knew about them.

First album of theirs that I bought was Heaven Tonight back in 77. One listen to Surrender and I was a fan. In fact I sang Surrender in every band I was in through out high School and college. Kinda lost track of them after Dream Police in the early 80s.

 

Still a great live band even if Bun E. isn't touring anymore. Got to see them this past summer opening for Foreigner.

He has always been deadly with those pics, I wonder how many he has thrown in his career?

Cool pics.

 

 

Heck, I bet it was a couple hundred at the show I saw at lease.....by the end, it was handfuls..........lol.

 

I have to say that for a band that's been around as long as they have, they were still laughing with each other and appeared to be having a really good time........awesome to see!

Yea i was like 13 when i saw the One on One show in '81 i believe, seen em again in 83, for next position please and then again and again throughout the years every time i heard they were coming I tried to go. I think the best one was the tour when tom returned to the band, i think it was the flame that they did on his return, used to have all the early records from start, Oh yea they really had fun when tom came back it was amazing to hear that 12 string bass. Ah I think that double neck rick guitar was for the next position tour...
