Thanks for the memory jog.
I grew up in TnT going to his house as a little boy before he formed his band. He played mas with my stepfather and I when I was about 7.
I went to almost every fete where he played after I grew up.
I looked up to him as a big brother but the last time I saw him was at TnT Carnival '78. We limed a bit at my brother's house in Diego.
If you run into him again give him my very best.
