    Say hi to Sully for me. Haven’t seen him in a long time since the days of OZZ at the Bavarian. Before that we used to jam on Saturdays at the Shamrock with Pearson tending bar, one great guy. Jammed with some great musicians over the years and remember packing the Bavarian on those Wednesday nights before thanksgiving with people lined up down the block to get in. Wall to wall people and some mighty fun times.

    • Well, all I can say is Tom Jones, you should get your butt on a jet plane and get up here and enjoy the reunion festivities. But get here before the line starts. Hey, a lot of people have asked me, if I know anything about an OZZ reunion, have you heard anything? Doug Taylor

        Wish I could but have to work as I’m taking a big trip next month. Bad timing. As you know Jeff galas and Scott hock are both dead, so a reunion of my version of OZZ would be a little shallow unless we could get jack Myers and bill Moore together. Have fun!
