Very sad news. Chuck Berry…maybe the most important figure in all of Rock and Roll. The first popular singer / songwriter ever, and the first to write songs for and about kids. His music and his influence will last forever.
December 24, 2016 – Rock and Roll lost a great soldier yesterday when Frank Murray, the Pogues’s manager passed away. I knew him when my band Clover toured with Thin Lizzy in Britain in the late 70s and he was their road manager … He was smart, sweet, charming, funny, handsome, and very Irish, and taught me (and Sean) lots about the circus that is a rock and roll tour. He will be sorely missed. – Huey

September 25, 2016 – Rest in Peace Arnold Palmer. There was never a classier, kinder gentleman. Huey, John Pierce and myself were lucky enough to play with Arnie one day at his home course in Latrobe, PA. You have no idea how hard it is to hit a shot with Arnie watching (2nd photo). By the way , I hit it to 2 feet and made birdie! The world lost one of it’s finest today.
It is with great sadness we tell you that we have lost one of the most special members of our group.
Jim Moran died peacefully yesterday morning after a courageous two year battle with cancer.
“Bugsy” was an inspiration to all of us.
He was the most hard working, talented sound mixer and engineer that you could imagine.
He was with us since the beginning.
He will be dearly missed.
Our hearts go out to his family.
