For instance, I had Craig pegged all wrong, he looks nothing like I pictured him.


LOL! My first reaction after seeing my first photo of Craig was "That's not how Craig is supposed to look!" The next time I talked to him I told him he was going to have to change his looks to match how I pictured him. He didn't laugh.

I love this idea Oz. Hope everybody will participate.

Mike, the 14 or 15 years have been kind to you. LOOKING GOOD! I used to perform at a little club in Santa Monica 35 years ago, which I'm sure is long gone. It was called The Attica. We were performing there one night, when George Carlin walked in, explained that he had a new routine he wanted to try out, and asked if we would allow him to take the stage. Needless to say we had a great time that night.

I'm only doing this to encourage you guys to respond in kind, and because I so deeply appreciate Jack's offerings.

Here is me in about 1982...



and here is a recent picture of me, my wife (who I do not deserve) and my kids at La Push, WA.

The girl in the foreground in the white top? She has to be Richards' daughter




Actually, no. Jenny would be flattered to hear you say that, though. That was the second show of Richard's I'd ever seen. The first was the night before in New Orleans at Tipitina's. My friend Tom (white shirt, baseball cap) and I drove down from Tuscaloosa to Tip's to see some guy named Richard Thompson. He was supposed to be some hotshot guitar player and a decent songwriter. We figured, "hey -- even if the show is lousy, we'll still be in New Orleans."

It was one of those nights where everything came together. We knew the Quarter well enough, but we'd never been to Tipitina's (waaaaaaaaaaay on the other end of Canal Street down by the warehouses on the river). So we got there much too early and as a result we were basically resting our beers on the stage. Richard was incredible, and after the show one of the staff members allowed us backstage. Richard was charming and affable, and after Tom and I gathered our remaining brain cells, we drove back to Tuscaloosa hellbent on dragging some friends BACK DOWN to Baton Rouge the very next night so they could share in the fun. The girl in the purple was my girlfriend at the time. The other two were just good friends who decided to join us in our madness. 24 shows later, he's still the best act I'll catch in any given year.

Jack, thanks for the kind words. Santa Monica is a beautiful town and I had a great time there. I can't even imagine what must have been going through your mind when George walked up to the stage. I love that kind of stuff -- those are the kinds of stories we love to tell and people enjoy hearing.

Is this only open to people over 40?

The earliest I can do without raiding my parent's house is 1998:



And here's a recent pic of me and the family hiking near the SF Bay in Berkeley:



See how I've changed? I wear glasses and I'm a little heavier now.

Geez, Peter, in both pictures you're not even looking at the camera. . .
