Had a great phone reunion yesterday Dec 2012 (after 47 years) with long lost Johnny Adamec, who played drums in our group The Strangers in the mid 60's.

We talked for about 2 hours on the phone during which Johnny asked me if I had read the Steven Tyler of Aerosmith bio book. I hadn't, but when I checked it out .... SURPRISE SURPRISE as Gomer Pyle would say.

Steve most likely heard us playing at Trude Heller's club in the west village. I recall one night as I was driving in to the city to go to work there,I hit a huge traffic jam on the LIE , (nothing unusual there ) , but this was a jam on the exit ramp too. That's 'cause everyone was going to Shea Stadium to see the Beatles.
