    …I met him in early 1970,and was introduced to him at the old “Wine Cellar” in Ghirardelli Square…Ted James,a guitarist and mutual friend had told me about him,and also told Billy about me…Ted had told him that I was a precocious you…ng harmonica player,and Billy said,”yeah,yeah,I’ve heard about this many times”,but after hearing me play for just a few moments,he later told me his first thoughts were.”…oh Shit,he really CAN play…”…we went through a lot together,believe me…have any of you heard the Grits album,”Thoughts Of California”???…

Sadly, Andy died of lung cancer October 30, 2010. One of his last wishes was to bring his son together with his father.Please help me do this. Send all email to
