In Memory of

Jeff Beals

The trumpet player we had for a couple of years was Johnny Freeman.  Dave Fast followed Johnny.  The keyboard player on "Crossfiring" was George Mitroff, who was with us about a year.  Also, early on, circa 1963 on keyboards was Doug Lindsay.

I'm still rockin' with JR.CADILLAC, focusing now on Baritone Sax, and am still the "New Guy" going on 13 years, as JR. CADILLAC enters its 38th year.

Thanks for all the great memories!!!
