For Tom Petty
Thank you For The Tom Petty comments … My friend Jon Scott was considered by many to be Tom Petty’s BFF. while working for ABC records promoted Tom from the beginning to the end. Tom thanks him below at the ‘last show’ he talked tom into moving to LA and even paid his rent many times. Tom was almost a fixture at KSJO when i worked there, him the band and Tony D, longtime manager. first time i saw petty … palo alto … 17 paid admissions … of course … i was on the ‘guest list’ being a college radio dj KZSU

For Neil Young
0ff the ducks … story (recently published history), duck wiki, and various compilation recordings and high lighted songs from various gigs. saw the good times article 5 days old and went on duck search. Â this stuff was SO rare and coveted. i had cassettes of some but this is amazing how many recordings Â people have posted now. The ducks were so much aÂ FUN band as players were great, bob mosley bass for moby grape would sing ‘gypsy wedding’ from the grape. Jeff’s guitar and Neil playin was a cool mesh .. and one time i watched neilÂ jump down from the stage onto the dance floor and dance w/ some girls to his own band. they were ‘that kinda’ shows. Â i guess they were ‘those kinda times’ Â enjoy
In the summer of 1977 Neil Young moved to town to make legendary music
