My dearest friend of almost 64 years died. Friends since 4th grade.
Skip and I discovered rock n roll together in the early 60’s.
He was the instrument that forced me to take music seriously. It was his idea to go to England and seek our fame and fortune in 1974.
He was a brilliant molecular biologist…and a prolific published writer.
He leaves a wife but no children. He has three siblings.
I got no air in my lungs.
I want to write a fitting tribute, at some point, but not now. The family did not post an obituary for him so there is nothing about his life to find online.
What a great pal.
Allen ‘Skipper’ Howlett
