Skip and the band. I used to travel lots with my Dad. Your great music would always come on the radio. Great songs while traveling with a nice Dad. Thanks so so much! I love my one fine mornings and I married a pretty lady. Very best to you Skip.
I first saw Lighthouse at St Catherines Colligate in ST Catherines I think around 1969 or 70. I then had the priviledge of opening for them at Centenial High School in Welland around the same time where I met Paul and Skip,
I was one of the hosts at the Ontario Pavilion at Expo 70. Those are my former colleagues gracing your Expo picture - I was there too but don't see myself. Your group also performed at our party. I have written a book about some of our exploits at Expo (I was approached by 3 Czechoslovak hostesses who wanted to defect to Canada) which will be published early next year. I would like to use some of the lyrics from 'One Fine Morning' as front matter if you would give me permission. Many thanks.
I love the picture - could I have a copy and use it in the book?
huge huge fan, please please pack up the band in the van, Skip at the wheel, and come to the west coast
my first lighthouse concert was the fall of 1968, just after i got my d l. it was at st mike's college at st. clair and bathurst. jeezuz, skippy, u used whack those drums. my all time favorite lighthouse song was "chest fever" i still play it most mornings to get up and go. madame x and i used to follow u all over ontario. gettin' old, don't remember aall the places, but sorta remember deehurst, by huntsville. the big thing i came away from that one was the smell of brut - yucky. keep up the good work skippy and gang, chest fever for ever
You guys played the Opera in Ottawa. The fire marshal said we couldn't charge admission and you guys ended up playing all night in return for us covering your hotel bill. Thanks again!
I believe I saw you in 1974 in Austin, Texas on the University of Texas campus in the Gregory Gym. You followed a comedian, David Frye, and your sound was incredible. You made the evening worthwhile.
Go lighthouse and hey skip, how come that song by "the band ", that lhouse covered on first album, fuck I hate short term memory loss, is not on YouTube? Pinky dauvin was lead singer. Fuck, after I finish this, I'll fuckin' remember the song. Fuck
Grateful for you writing this blog
