The Vagabonds
Menu Page

As I sip my martini while creating the page of photos of the Vagabonds in the movie "Something to Sing About," starring James Cagney, strong memories and feelings about the times spent with those guys brought tears to my eyes. They were one of the bright star-lit times of my life. I can sit here and visualize all of them in their club in Miami, and I can see each of them as the individual characters they were. The Individual Characters that I had the good fortune to know - to be a part of their lives and they to be a part of my life. I remember how well they treated me. I was no one of importance, but they treated me like a buddy. I miss you guys, and I hope we can be together again, somewhere, someplace, I will be looking for you.

An old record from Roger Pearsall, he was the drummers with the boys. I have attached one of the tracks from the Century Plaza Hotel show. This was one of the last times Dom, Al, Til and Dino were together on stage. It was recorded on an old wollensack by a bus boy. So you get what you get! - Rog
