"Thrilled to see the pic of Tanker and Roland and Pai (Paisano). I remember Tank's bike being an electric start....said he got ragged on a lot, but he wasn't out there spending all his time kick starting".
"Roland died years ago in Ramona, perhaps on his uncle's property there. I believe Roland died in January of 1978....RIP...I heard about Roland's dying in Ramona from a friend via Narco Bob....last time I saw him was in Ramona."
"Tanker died years ago in the desert in Arizona, in his hearse, was cremated and some of his ashes divided amungst his bros...some of these ashes carried in a small receptacle clipped to a roach clip so he could always go along and party with everyone else".
"I came home the night Hendrix was playing there and was quite surprised...lol..I think it was the night before he played The Bowl and, as I recall was getting $60 thou for the Bowl...and we had him for free".
"Why more responses from women than men? Maybe because we're still alive. Roland's dead, Tank's dead, I don't know where Richard is, last saw him living in Pasadena. Who else? Blue? Leona? Bebe? Bebe's dead".
"The mention of the pants Roland was wearing being in two pics...yep...his fave. Red / green large houndstooth check pants, blue / green floral shirt with white collar and to top it off a light turquoise suede jacket".
"Lol....I see that someone else who posted lived in the front balcony apartment...I did also, earlier...Roland's room was on the roof...called 'Heaven."
