I’m very pleased to take part in this event, hosted by Howard’s children Mila and Terence Dechef. From the time I started doing shows, Howard was in most all my bands. He was enthusiastic and always smiling. He was a rock. At this event, I am sure we will hear many fond memories, but I will also present 3 vocal selections in honour of Howard and the songs he and I played together. One of them will have Howard’s son on the bass. Truly an honour!
