Thanks for posting this reids.  I always wondered who delivered that incredible intro and was always too lazy to look it up. Truly a part of R&R history without ever stepping on a stage!

You’re welcome.
He had a larger the life voice. R.I.P. JR.

In the old days he helped raise and lower Peter Criss’ drum set (several on each side with chains / rope) to work as a lever for the riser effect.  I heard that Peter actually fell off riser a few times due to not being “balanced”. 😁

"We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when, but I know we'll meet again some sunny day"

Simple but highly emotional lyrics. RIP Vera.

Fun Fact: That song was played at the end of Peter Grant's memorial service.

Damn. What a one-two punch to the gut this has been. First Johnny Mandel.

Then, Carl Reiner...a titan of comedy and a true mensch.

Godspeed and rest in peace, gentlemen.
