I was 15 yrs old when George then 18 asked me to try out for his band about 1964 or 65. Best time of my life. We lost touch over the years as we both grew and went our separate ways. But I will always be grateful to George for that opportunity for asking me to try out for his band. I am posting this late but I did not find out about his death until recently. RIP, George

George gave us stories that only he could have lived. A renaissance man. I think your father was worthy of a place in literature. Most people have a couple of rooms in their head , George had many rooms as do most people who are exceptional.

George was one-of-a-kind. He always had something amusing to share and Shore Drive will not be the same without him. He loved his music and shared it proudly.
