In between the usual spam from phony strippers and endless viagra messages(which I could probably use), I got a heartening email from the widow of Tommy Boyce, She said she found me and was thrilled that I was influenced by him. Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart wrote a lot of songs for The Monkees who I always say I like way better than the Beatles. They also had their own huge hit song “I wonder what she’s doing tonight” one of those songs that everybody knows, but they don’t know who sings it. He committed suicide in 1994, which if you know the words to that song, makes his death all the more tragic.

My friend Steve just got back from London where his film, “There May be Pleasure” premiered at some film festival there. He thinks his name “Steve Wallace” is too common so he wants to change it, and I said if he wanted to be a star he should change it to “Steve Walrus”.
