Q: I'm having a beer and wondering about people who played the Pine Cone Room in the Bay back in '78. I was called Marbles back then. I remember you . You still sound good kid. Take care John. Cheers

A: Wow! How are you man? It took me three months to get back to you. Oops. Same old John I guess. So where are you living? What are you you doing with yourself these days?
