    i saw Edgar and Rick Derringer in the 70's. it was a great concert until the barbiturates kicked in (not just me, the whole audience.)

    I saw Edgar and Rick as well but never saw Johnny. My money is on drug overdose.

    RIP Johhny

    I saw Johnny in a little club in 86'. He was sad looking then. Poor guy. Sho' could play though.

    Ereven! I hitched a ride from Jerry La Croix in LA, Edgar's sax man, way back in the day. That's all I got.
