Over the years I've been around people who have always - unfailingly - managed to get themselves into a picture with whatever celebrity happens to be in the same room. Usually, the people who do this are minor celebrities themselves or in some position that gives them access. I, as a musician, always thought they were kind of weird, trading on others celebrity to get themselves over. However…, now that I'm trying to put this page together I realize, much to my dismay, how many prominent people I could have taken a picture with over the years. (Not to impress anybody, just for the tangible memories...) When I get back to the states I'll go through all my old photos and pull up what I can - but, in the interim, here's an eclectic assortment of folks I've been around and didn't take pictures with when I could have. I haven't bothered to include the obvious like Roberta Flack & Marvin Gaye (whom I have pictures with somewhere) nor anybody already on my artists page. The rest (in no particular order) are :


I've known Moody since I met him in Dizzy's band in 1966 in Boston.
I was friendly with Chris White and Rudy Collins (bassist and drummer in the band) so I got connected. I learned a lot just listening to Moody talk about music and the biz. One of the last living great multi -generational influences.

Update: 2010 was a bad year for people I liked and admired.
Moody went to join the rest of the boppers in December 2010.
Got to be a hell of a band up there now.
