It was definitely not my cup of tea - god bless my friend Geoff, but he was in a band that, much like the others that night, were trying so hard to be alt / avant-garde and quirky ..
After Geoff's band played, he asked if I'd want to play something ... Now, I was not prepared and my first reaction was to get in my car and start the long drive back to NJ ....
He's like "oh, c'mon, why not ??" ... and I really didn't have an answer to "why not ?"
So I borrowed his acoustic guitar, and in between his band and a couple of poetry readers, I did my best version of "I'll Meet You Halfway" ....
It was great fun, and Geoff was smiling ear to ear when I handed back his guitar ..
that was great, what the hell was it ??

Says he died awaiting a liver transplant. Seems to me that I read a long time back he had a drinking problem.
The Partridge Family started when he was only 20, so that early success might have messed with his head, a la Justin Beiber.
Poor guy sounded a mess. I hope he finally found peace.

Quite the guitar riff though. I see what you mean.

A few of the causes of dementia are preventable. Vitamin deficiencies, smoking, high blood pressure, alcohol & other drug abuse, untreated syphillis, not contracting Lyme disease, etc. In short, we gotta take care of our brains just like we take care of our bodies. Keep the good, healthy blood flowing.
