Getting the band back together

    What a find! As a graduate of Newman, I always knew Ben Franklin was a quality school. We had the Mannings, but I think that pair trumps us. LOL! One more day!!!!

    I got more of Wendell from the same yearbook, and one of Davis Rogan when he was 4’10” and a freshman, but they’re over on NuPac. Franklin was quite the star-studded place back in the early 80’s.

    i’ll have to tell you the story about davis as my bus boy back in the day.

    he was a total pain in the ass.

    looking back on it , it’s cool .

    but back than i just wanted a bus boy who would do his damn job.

    flash forward later and he was sitting in with kermit at the little peoples place on keyboard.

    he sucked about as much as he did as a busboy.

    in hind site it was all good.

    davis has been a pain in my ass the couple of times he crossed my path.

    it turns out he did o.k. for himself.

    i really liked the “all that” album.

    somebody must have given him a copy of the little train that could when he was an kid.

    dude used to bug the hell out of me on wwoz also.

    i see steve zahn all the time around the gym and i want to tell him this stuff but i dont because he seems to have davis nailed ,from the clips ive seen.

    i guess my points are , davis worked his ass off while annoying a shit load of people but never really fucked any body over to my knowledge.

    he got to live his dream in a place called new orleans despite all the beatdowns of people telling him he sucked.

    just for the record i wasn’t one of those people , but i sure as hell thought it when he bussed tables.

    thanks ray for letting me blab.

    Davis is a trip, Rick. I think *everyone* in town has run into him at some point.
