In 1960 He was my friend Robbie Robinson, going to University of Maryland, we hung out together, taught each other folk guitar licks. In College park we just toted guitars around looking for folk jams. We were both heavily into 12-string. For I while I didn’t feel complete with out a 12-string and a harmonica rig. He was very high strum, eager, anxious, intense, and had a bit of an inferiority complex. He sweated. Later in California he changed his name, played rolling triplets, lived near the ocean with two gorgeous Asian women and practiced Tai Chi.
