1985 Johnny's D Allston ("Dead Boston Clubs") reunion

Archcriminal!) and "surprise surprise" (think I saw
the fast cover that Stones song at "dead boston club"
cantones); dave Harrison! (Voodoo Dolls et al).
jamming with him in my Buzz and the gang living room circa 1985
("Reagan years...bop bop bop") "this song here
shows my Elvis Costello influence". captain Easychord agrees!
There has "Never been Any reason" for Dave to NOT HEAD
