Happy actual birthday to main man Ray Grappone and many more! We go way back to 1987 when we met on a TWA flight coming back from Frankfurt on same flight with Joe Berger and Danny Gottlieb was on the flight also – Ray coming back from road show of “Chorus Line” – somewhere there is a photo of us with a flight attendant from Germany who said she never heard of The Beatles, no kidding! – Ray is one of the busiest drummer cats in town all over NYC and since we’ve done quite a few gigs and sessions together – happy birthday Ray and howdy to Vicki B.!! – Jon Hammond
(and twin brother Richie Richard Grappone)!
characterizations of Internet Archive Team at world headquarters – there is founder / main man Brewster Kahle just to my right with book in-hand! – Jon Hammond
2 of my favorite people / jazz musicians have sadly passed:
Ellis J. Pough a/k/a/ Ellis The Nazarene
and Rudy Lawless a/k/a/ Rudy Sheriff Lawless – little has been
written about (both) of these fine musicians / people – I shot these photos in December of 2013 at Local 802 AFM in the Club Room – RIP Ellis & Rudy!
Sincerely, Jon Hammond

Bernard showed up right in time, we hit it and quit it – thanks a lot cats!! Saved the moment for history, and Keith Emerson came up right after us that night – you’re never going to hear that again – Jon Hammond
