Oh man, I can't believe I missed your birthday. How do you forget that Patrick Watt Burke was born on St Paddy's day? Hope it was a good one.

Denny and I were good buds and I remember buying my first 45 with him in 1963.....The Trashmen doing The Surfin' Bird.  He and I listened to it 100 times.  It was so sad to see him succomb so quickly to cancer.  His mother was an angel.
