I was browsing my social media late last week and saw a post that Bugs was officially on the road. It didn't really hit me until I didn't see him behind the kit over the weekend. Crazy to think that he was only 2 months shy of a 10 year run with the boys. I will miss seeing him and his warm embraces as I enter the venues way before showtime. Bugs will be missed, his energy, positive attitude and smile will be hard to replace. Hopefully Camilo can swing as hard as Bugs, Conrad is gonna miss his partner in crime.
All that stuff you heard about lard, they're all lies, lard is like the... I'm sorry (laughs)... It's the juice of life...

Damn.He is the happiest dude I have ever seen behind a drum kit.Always wanted a one off show with him,Conrad,and Billy Zoom.Try to wipe the smiles off their faces. Glad I saw his last show(paying crowd pre covid)in Waterville Maine. And I only went because covid wiped out work at the time.Thanks Bugs,you did real good with LL.You will be missed :rimshot:


Just getting back on the 'hood...

Hard to believe that was 10 years. Was there for both his and Cougar's first shows.

Damn. Maybe I'm bad luck!  :elaugh:
I'll be the short Mexican standing by the bar...

I believe it was 7 years. Bugs is an incredible spirit.
The nice thing is that the pandemic shutdown gave him and wife Janet a good opportunity to move on to a new phase of their lives.
The parting was most amicable.
While I miss the hell out of my friend Bugs --- I love Fredo and think he's nailing it!
Thank You, Music Lovers
