I was in a few solid bands back in the day and perhaps the most solid of them all was this version of the Razz Band.
Jack Alves, BBB, Hans Olson and Rick Unger
Jack is wearing a Razz Revue T-shirt, as he should, and I am wearing a 10X Beaver Stetson, as I should. And, here we are today at The Sesame Inn in Carefree, 40 years later. Still rockin' the hot and spicy soup.
Jack tells me he is busier than ever on the music circuit. He plays Baby Kay's in Mesa every Tuesday and he also does a ton of gigs at Independent Living facilities, Assisted Living facilities and Memory Living Facilities (dementia wards). When I asked him if he gets any requests for "Stairway to Heaven," he says, "Not yet." Dang. I hope I live long enough to request "Communication Breakdown." And then fall out of my wheelchair and writhe on the floor like Robert Plant (or, Little Big Man).
"Communication breakdown, it's always the sameHavin' a nervous breakdown, a-drive me insane!"
—Led Zeppelin, 1969
