Sat Apr 09 22:43:43 2005 Referred By: Bought your Stones CD on the Amazon web site I've been a huge fan since the 70's. I introduced all my friends to all of your Batdorf and Rodney LP's in high school. I had to buy three copies of Off the Shelf because I played this one ALL the time. Also - Just found the new CD version on Amazon and I'm thrilled. I also like the Michael McLean stuff both of you did together. The Stones album is GOLD! Keep putting out great acoustic music!

Sat Apr 30 17:28:43 2005 I live right around the corner from the Coffee Gallery in Altadena - CA and am looking forward to seeing you tonight. Finding out you were playing locally was a treat. Last saw you at Santa Monica Civic maybe in '73/'74 at a Batdorf & Rodney concert. I emailed my friend Greg Barbato because you guys played together way back when. According to Greg (assuming his long-term memory is still intact) ..."John kind of got his start with the "Trojans" - so he better remember us. He may not remember it this way - but the way I remember it - he was with a band that was really struggling in Dayton circa 1966 - mostly because John was the only real talent in the group. Doug West - Paul LaVigne - me (and others you don't know) were in the Trojans at the time; we were pretty well established and pretty damn good too! But - Paul got sent to Nam - and suddenly we were in dire need of a talented lead singer. We saw Batdorf's group performing at a Dayton club and thought he'd be a perfect match for us. P

Wed May 04 11:48:21 2005 I Really Enjoyed reading about your music career & the play by play of how you "did it" in the early days. I have most likely heard some of your music in the early years - but I'll have to go & listen in the archive section to refresh my memories...My brother who is 50 now - I'm sure has heard of you.... Thanks for the read....

Sat Apr 30 17:35:28 2005 Think my comments were too long for one entry - here's the rest..."Personality-wise and musically - it really turned out to be a match made in heaven. He lifted us up and we lifted him up. Those were very good - very fun days. John - assuming he hasn't changed much - is a great guy." Greg is still the wonderful guy he always was. Thought you'd get a kick out out this flashback. Looking forward to seeing you tonight.

Thu Mar 24 13:13:44 2005 I started listening to your music back in 1970 and have all three of your Batdorf & rodney albums (bought them when they first came out back in the 70"s). Anyway I am in a band here in Carson City - Nevada - and we do cover songs from those albums.My band is called "Shotgun Madness" - so if your ever in the Reno - Carson City area - and we are playing somewhere - stop by and say hi.thanks for all the great music over the years.

Mon Nov 29 14:13:58 2004 Thanks for having a direct source bio online. Yall floored some of us acoustic nuts years ago with the format. I'm so out of it - good luck. It must take a bundle to have a good guitar now compared to 73-75.
