He's been gone five years next month. We were two small town boys who used to get in trouble for being loud mouths. He edited the original Geronimo manuscript in 1994. We started a band in 1963. He named the band The Exits, because as he put it, "That's where everyone will go when they hear us play." We both loved Mexican food and blonds. We both hated ASU, as any U of A alum would.
I am dedicating the Geronimo book to Charlie for the first class editing and for being so supportive of everything I ever tried to do. A better friend I've never had.
