Tribute to an old friend

In a departure from our usual tales of terror, this week we instead feature a salute to an old band buddy, Pete Brown (no, not the guy who wrote “Sunshine of Your Love”). Most of you won’t remember when Pete was an honourary member of the band, or even when he was a member of my brother’s band, The Midnite Trip, in the 60s. Suffice it to say, however, that Pete was part of our lives. We were shocked and saddened to hear of his sudden passing when he took his own life in the 80s. Yes, those of you who do remember Pete can help us out here — what date DID Pete leave us? Anyway, to see Sparkling Apple photos during the “Pete Era” click on THIS link.
