    Technically 1991, but the audio and video production are clearly stuck in the '80's so therefore my inclusion of it here...

    April Wine was a band well worth listening to. I've still got my 45s of Sign of the Gypsy Queen and Just Between You and Me. Excellent tunes. Their covers were pretty good too. I'm still surprised they got If You See Kay by the censors of the day.

    Thanks. Ironically, my all-time favorite boss didn't make it.

    He was humble and kind, a family man, the kind of guy who would literally give you the shirt off his back.

    Rare in life, rarer in the music business.

    This thread made me search for him on the Internet.

    I wonder how old his daughter is now.

    I mean no disrespect in sharing this online like this. I just imagine I'm not the only survivor here.

    Thanks for putting up with me Bob, sorry for all the times I screwed up. I'm sure you already knew all that!

    Marie Marie is my ringtone. And it's sad, I'm not sure the Alvin brothers are even speaking now days. I saw them back in the early '80's at the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach, CA. Great show. They blew a speaker on the last song, either Marie or So Long Baby, I don't remember which one.

    Point Blank, Head East and April Wine opened for Blue Oyster Cult in Memphis 1980, fantastic concert. April Wine put on a hellva show.

    Donnie Iris was in a local band called The Jaggers, later The Jaggerz that had a no. 1 hit The Rapper. I used to see them all the time playing around W. PA and then Geneva on the Lake, Ohio in the summer. Great band and great times. He is very talented.
