(it wasn't Lou)
    Ralph penland is very active today as is Lanny Morgan.

    I'll never forget the day of the funeral of my dearest freind --and to all of the musicans (that played the music) Little Mac- Evert McLaughlin at the Hollywood forever cemetary The chappal was filled- and off to the left side sat Med Flory-and all the cats in Super Sax (2003) and at the right time and the right moment-they played one choures of ---MY BUDDY ah yea.
