Blasto Pasto

Schnikeys! Geggy A. called today! He was a baby employee at ol' Licorice Pizza. I have not talked to him since Mike's (of Spike and....) funeral on the bluffs of La Jolla some 15 years ago. I think he shot some photos of Dickey Mo and yours truly shagging some golf balls with a 5 iron off the bluff and into a group of surfers. There were few casualties. We'll have to try harder next time.

Geggy is working for an indie record company designing cd covers. He was recently in a near tragic Vespa crash. He was seriously injured but seems to have recovered save for some creaky joints and a gap where a tooth ought to be. To visit his website and view his photos go to:

He was the youngest of the young when he worked at LP and he had/has a driven passion for music that is impressive.

We talked about that great parade of characters that worked at Licorice Pizza: the late Drew Blood, Roderick, Nancy, Dickey Mo, Vivage, D. Davis, Little Ricky, Che, Coco DeLuxe, Reading Rob the Fly Fisherman... All faded away to their own glories and passions.

Never shall such a troupe emerge from the ooze again.

Bless 'em all.
