Yesterday I learned that an old friend of mine passed away.
I became friends with Danny a few years back and if it hadn’t been for him I would never have met David and so for that reason alone he has a place in my heart. But before that we hung out for a little while. I had some mind blowing days (as any E Street Band fan could appreciate I’m sure) and along the way he showed me that there is life outside of a small Scottish village.
Later he met David, in a backstage ‘tent’ at a Darien Lake fairground in Buffalo, he gave me the nod of approval and that was the last time I saw him.
I believe he did read this blog from time to time. Danny could relate. He had cancer also.
I am so sad he is gone. He'll be missed by so many. Like another friend said yesterday, “the heavenly band must have needed a kick-ass organ player”. I like that. :)
This bootleg is kind of special for me. My sister too. And her crazy x-boyfriend. WHAT A NIGHT we had!!
