      • Hey Steve,
        The truth is, I had an internal debate as to weather or not to include an old pix ofDanny! I thought if you couldn’t identify the lyric from “Roses And Rainbows” seeing that picture of Danny wouldn’t help you! I’m curious would you have been able to answer the question without seeing the pix of Danny ? In YOUR case I’m sure the answer is Yes! And as often happens YOU’RE the only one that did! like I thought, the picture didn’t change the outcome! Thanx Steve for always showing up on Tuesday morning!
