A good man gone.

Lost a musician friend yesterday to a heart attack at 49 .

Bruno was a friend I came upon (at least 10+ years ago)through Chris Bacon(wholigan guitarist) and Ray Harris (a one time wholigan bassist)and good friend.

Those 3 guys (along with singer Peter) were in a south Florida band in the late 70'/80's called Z-Cars who were very popular back then, and just recently in the summer had filmed a reunion concert/movie along with other popular Florida bands of the time including one with Johnny Depp.

The movie is due out soon.

+ see video below (featuring Bruno,Chris and Ray)

Bruno was keen to drum for The Wholigans at one time as he knew a lot of Who songs as he played them in zcars, and we met a number of times over the years and even played in Miami/FtLauderdale.

Bruno wasn't a close close friend but he meant a lot to Ray and Chris, and through them I met a great guy ....and any friend of those guys is a friend of mine.

Bruno I'll miss you man, I hope they have a bloody ceasar waitng backstage at the great gig in the sky for you.

A night at the Agora on youtube...a documentary on Florida bands of the late 70's early 80's. Look for Chris,Ray & Bruno.

Ironically Bruno is the last one commenting on the video.
