Here’s a 1987 solo song of his, a really fun cover of an obscure song by a band named Groundhog.

  1. Sad news. There seem to so many great musicians passing over this year, Yabby You, Willy Mitchell and Lynn Tait..who will replace them?
    Thanks for the track.

  2. Waah! I o.d.’d on him long before he passed, but I keep on playing tribute these last few days.
