Scotty Beamed Up

Web site is great, congratulations! My heart strings are pulling after seeing so many of the talented people I was privileged to work with over the years. The sad part is I have lost a lot of great musician pals who are bebopping up there somewhere! MALCOLM SAUL, SID WARREN, NIGEL STANGER, ARTHUR MOWAT, DEREK DIXON, RONNIE PEARSON, and so many more. But, looking on the bright side, none of these will ever be overlooked because of the wonderful chronicle you have put together. FANTASTIC and once again, TOP MAN!
The great news for me is there are a lot of talented players and singers around to support and listen to and to play with if I ever get the chance. Thanks once again, Lance, for the mention in last night's blog.
BIT SPOOKY ABOUT THE JAMES MOODY BIT THOUGH! (Click here).
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
