    Andy was the original drummer for “The Cyclones” in ’66 or ’67. A great guy he was. I remember practicing at his house and going to his uncle’s pizza place on Plainfield to eat. Good times. RIP, my friend.

    John Karns, remember Big Dave? I just located Keith, he lives in South Carolina and has been playing music professionally his whole life. keithtracylivemusic.com Hey, does your brother still have that ’58 Caddy?

    I first met Andy when we were both high school students – he @ Catholic Central, and I @ Ottawa Hills (the old location on Iroquios St). He along with a few others would sometimes visit me @ my parents’ house and we would usually jam a few tunes.

    A small group of us would sometimes hang out, and Andy once came along with some of us on a weekend camping trip to the Baldwin, MI area. Andy always had a great attitude, which made him a pretty agreeable person, and fun to hang out with. He almost always had a smile on his face.

    Several years later we had the chance to work together playing in a variety band in Middleville – in approx 1976 / ’77. RIP, Andy – we miss you.
