Ha! My father-in-law grew up in Yonkers and played bass with his high school garage band. Steven Tallarico was the lead singer for the band. Steven wanted to take the band on the road but my FIL's mom was single and she wanted him to stay back to help with his siblings. He stayed in Yonkers while the band took off for various gigs around NYC. 

For those who don't know who Steven Tallarico is, he later changed his name to Steven Tyler...yes, THAT Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. 

The drummer that I played with for the last 4-1/2 years grew up in Yonkers and played with Steve (Talarico, a/k/a Tyler).  His name is Tommy Scopino and he played in the U.S. Navy Jazz Band and also was the drummer for Todd Rundgren for 11 years, plus he played with both Bad Company and even KISS when their drummer was sick and in rehab.  Yonkers, NY turned out some good musicians — even Gene Krupa came from Yonkers!

Rick James is a favorite of mine, and I can’t imagine the stories you could tell!!!

Rick was a real trip, even back then.  He grew up in Buffalo, NY and used to play in small clubs and “dive bars” before he got “discovered”.  I was friends with his bodyguard (we played football together, and he went to high school with my best friend), and my keyboard player/band leader was a friend of Rick James, which is how we got the job opening for him on his first “tour” (mostly amusement parks, county fairs, and small arenas). This was before “Super Freak” and “Give It To Me Baby” were recorded.  I still keep in touch with some of the members of the Stone City Band.

We used to call Rick James “Rick the Trick” and the Stone City Band was known by those who were close to them as the “STONED City Band”.

In the 70s pretty much EVERY band was “stoned”!!!

Seems like I may have asked this before, but I'm old so I get to repeat myself as much as I want.

When did you start working at PORTS?  I've been there off and on since 1985 until just before they shut down.

My last time there for DOE was 1991, but a few years later I was there several times for NRC.  Interfaced with the NMC&A group. 

That was during the time I started playing golf.  Played something called Beaver "something" near the plant, a course on the other side of Waverly toward Chillicothe, and one in Chillicothe with guys from the plant.

So what you are really saying is that you launder money for drug dealers. I like the way you put a spin on it! 🤣
