Re The Beatles -- in a sequence near the beginning, the Fab Ones appear to be walking to the stage from the dressing room, single file around a corner: I think every single one of them has a lit cigarette in his hand as they go by. It woulda been struck out by the film editor, if it happened today!!

RE: Randy Cole's video -- he often sells vintage instruments on eBay, saxophones, trumpets, sometimes a clarinet or guitar. His auctions are like a tutorial on How To Do It, with wonderful pictures, and often a video like this one featuring the instrument in question being played, sometimes by Al McLean himself, as he is apparently also an instrument technician and overhauls & sets up some of the horns Cole sells. I've bought a couple of things from Cole's auctions, myself!!

John P. Cooper

All the old schoolers are passing from the scene.

Someone should do a liner note tally of the names we once took for granted and see who is still out there and give them some props before it is too late.

MUSIC FOR SUBURBAN LIVING:

Those people knew how to live, love, eat and be happy!
