randy-zen-circle-connect2This is a picture of my friend John Piacente.  It was taken on an unusually warm Christmas Day in 1985 at Harbor Island, Mamaroneck, New York.  It’s one of my favorites.  John was an original and talented drummer, and more than that, a constant source of inspiration, loyalty and support.   

Instead of “resting in peace”…I like to think that he’s been in some pretty good jam sessions with others who have left us way too soon.
