    The Drummer on this video is Nicky Capozzi The original founding member of White Lion in the 80s. Vito Bratta also loves here in Staten Island NY, Nicky and Vito are still good friends. Vito came to one of our gigs about 8 years ago. I got to meet Vito, an amazing guitar player is he. Vito is one of Zak Wylde's favorite guitar players.

    shoot, SI is jusssst a little far for me to go catch a show, but i love the classic rock material. Hopefully this summer will see more shows. If I can find a cat sitter, I am so overdue for a nice road trip, haven't been to NYC since 2005.

    I've been zapped before BIGTIME. It is no fun.

    I probably should have been a little more open minded about our bass player. You know what they say...young & dumb.

    I lived in Swartswood at Crandon Lakes. We played a lot in Sussex county with all sorts of bands. The Half-way House on 23 between Hamburg and Sussex for one, but many other places. Be fore I left I was the Bass player in a country band that got paid well and was popular: "Denny and the Nashville Sound" Denny was quite the character.

    I grew up in Newton :D
    I’m not sure but I think the half-way house may have been called the Phonebooth in my day .

    An empty litter box, a big bowl of food, a big bowl of water---that is your "Cat Sitter". Cat's can and do live without humans. It's not a needy dog, it's an independent cat.

    You're right. Once, years ago, I went on a trip for at least seven days and I had a buddy promise to come over and feed my cat, empty the litter box if necessary, etc. After all I had walked his dog before. I did put out lots of food and water and even a second litter box.

    I came back a week later. The cat greeted me (as cats do, "I'll have to get back to you later.") ... then I found both litter boxes full and the food and water just about gone.

    My buddy? He ... forgot.

    However it never hurts to check on your cat, especially if it has some kind of medical problem.

    Just don't ask my buddy to check on your cat.

    Oh, enjoy your gig. You guys seem to be having a lot of fun.

    We played a lot at Swartswood Lodge and the North Shore House. I sold a 60 Harley to one of the brothers that own the North Shore House.

    Swartswood Lodge is now a Private home and fenced in.

    I taught grade School in Hopatcong and left NJ in 1979 for New Hampshire.

    Cool.

    This kind of thing is more and more on my mind.
    Of course, I have yet to reliably play any song all the way through. Even 'Have Love, Will Travel'.
    But doing that never quite leaves my mind.
