Rest in Peace Phantom Dan

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!!

“Come on up for the Rising”…

It sounds as if you all have had a couple of really bad days.So very sorry about the two losses you all have faced .Like I told David in a e-mail you never know when something is going to happen.I heard a Pastor say one time .If you have something to say to someone you love say it today do not wait until tomorrow.
So I want you all to know how much we love all of you.
Love To All

Stephanie & David,
There are just no words to express how sad I feel at your loss of 2 friends. I just know that somehow you've been blessed in knowing them in this life. It has been a terribly hard time for all of you lately, just keep in mind that you are thought of daily and always in my prayers.
