Daoud Rafik ~ Ah those clean cut days.  You had to have mom & dad’s permission to be out so late in those days.  I used to sneak out my bedroom window to go for a gig, come home before sunrise & be fast asleep like a nice obedient boy when my mom would try and wake me up for breakfast.  But all this ended just as suddenly it had started, when one night I sneaked out and some thief snuck in and stole my hifi.  Ah those clean cut days.

Owen Patrick ~ Clarence Andrade I can still hear your keys…  Remember when they asked you and Ken to kick me and Alex out of the band at the Midway house?

Tahir Gul Hasan ~ Great!

The Cossacks ~ Kenny Fialho, Thaddeus Pinto, Jerome Almeida, Joe Fernandes and Alex Gomes.
