“The Cube @ Astor Place” NYC just down the street in the East Village from where i lived with Bruce Gremo back in the 80’s. I have tons of images of NYC yet to be displayed on my website…..coming soon. I went to visit Roy Meyer when he lived on Queen St. Kitchener in 73 and he wasn’t in but his room mate Bruce Gremo was. We became friends instantly and have been close friends ever since. Bruce now lives in Beijing China teaching performing writing music of the highest quality. NYC gets in to your bones, no city like it. John Tank just lived down the street on 4th but only met up with him once while i lived there. He was there long before me and is still there on 4th blowing on his sax like very few, a gem in the world of jazz. When i was about ten or so i went to see a band at the Bridgeport Casino. My sister Trudy Schmidt husband Joe was the singer and leader of the country band. The sax player i heard was getting a world record for playing the instrument for 28 hours straight…..yup John Tank and who else but Bernie Carroll on drums at 13; ‘Franky and The Glow Tones’. Bernie and John have laughed over that a few times. John doesn’t remember any world record, but hey, i was ten, my brother in law probably bullshitted me for fun….NYC circa the 80’s and more to come.
