I met my wife at a gig where I auditioned with these guys live in Whistler to replace Tommy (getting frisked in the promo shot). He was leaving, but sadly he died in a bad accident and was never replaced, bringing to an end this great band. They are friends and were the prime influence in my forming. " The Need".

Dick Twacy was the best band a person could play with. I know because I was the drummer. Not only did we have great times together, we became brothers. I am still playing and would have gave it up long ago if it hadn't been for all the great friends I have met over the years.
To my friends I say Cheers! And to the people that had a bad attitude over the years.....Life is too short, so .........
