The Southpaw Band
Wow! 32 years ago that was my job for about a year. It didn't pay very well, but we had a good time. We lost Bruce last month, he's on the far left of the photo. I'm the one with the goofy hat. Those of us who knew Bruce lost a good friend .. the rest of us lost a great musician. Music was his life. Next weekend we have a few of the old band members, along with some musicians who have known Bruce for many years are doing a benefit to help his family out, and I'm trying to remember songs I haven't played for 30 yrs. This should prove to be a fun and interesting night. Not only the old band members I haven't seen for years, there are going to be so many people at the benefit who I haven't seen for as many years as well. I'm thankful be be a part of it, but sad for this reason we are bringing all these people together after all these years. Rest in peace my friend.
