Whatever floats your boat...
I remember there was a BEatles joke around the studio. joe paul sandy and jimmy..where's Ringo?
I remember this one! Very RUSH like, the WHO. and with his Bowie type sound, it was mindblowing SciFi psych songs.
I didn't know these songs word for word, like I did with Paper Garden. Paper Garden was like a lucky charm, i played it so much it never left my head.
So, someone filed a copyright complaint and PaperGarden is no longer on youtube.
I found Hillary Blaze searching for a way to buy PaperGarden.
So here's Sandy looking all Ziggy Stardust on the cover and singing with that smexy voice I will NEVER forget, all OVER this album. Amazeballs, everyone I've ever known who has any musical talent, Evolves. this evolution is so interesting.
the style is a complete turn to RockyHorror Picture show era, Bowie , sexy rock, away from the sitar and keyboards and onto more electric guitars and more trippy lyrics.
I speak to my cousins on the Italian side alot now. It's amazing how I found 2 of them just in time to understand more about my kidney disease, but would have been great if we had been in touch years ago. Maybe Sandy would have known more and been able to get treatment. Genetic testing has revealed a connective tissue defect -and each of us is effected differently. This is why knowing your heritage is important not only to understand your tribe but for health reasons.
so, heres another visit to Sandy's Music collection,
Sandy was one of my heroes. Was more of an uncle than a cousin .being an adult when I was born, he was a mentor.
love you Sandy
"Oh yes, I love you All" - Sandy Michael Napoli ..His lyrics. I'm now deadset on saving the money to Order a remastered copy of both Paper Garden and Hillary Blaze
Rest In peace, Beautiful Man. A heart of an artist is always gentle and strong at the same time.
