These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For

Last time I saw him play, I was photographing him from the fly floor of the Old Lady on Brady.  Going to have to search hard for those now.

My wife and I met him at the Circle Cinema.  When I told him I and my two roommates were in the 1975 OSU yearbook as Leon, Lily and Lola Russell, he gave me his address and asked me to send him the pic.  I sent it to him and am really glad I got the chance to meet him and put a smile on his face.
