Of course, I met Vic through R. Stevie.

Thanks for remembering Vic. BTW-his daughter had a baby and Vic would have been a grandfather had he survived. Best of luck, Chris. We know you'll be back soon.

Awesome blog & comments. Victor & I began writing music together in late 1982 early 1983 when Vic had moved to Merritt Island Florida.
Fagan Arough (smashers) was also living in Merritt Island,infact,Vic & Gwen were living in the trailor in Fagan's yard.man,what times,especially for writing music.when i met Vic he was at a musical low cause of all the dissapointments with the smashers etc...
i was this 20 something percussionist/lyricist who needed a Bernie Taupin/Elton John relationship when it came to songwriting.
Victor was my man!!!
i was blown away by the songs on the smashers album & i was blown away by his gentle spirit & hunger for music.
Vic always said,i was what he was looking for in all those years of music. we did the Taupin/john approach to music. i had a book full of lyrics just waiting for his music.
the lyrics would be written first then the music,man did that add a special sound to the songs!
some of the songs we wrote together were::: Violins (aka No More Violins),Torn Together,So Slow,Dance House,You're In Photographs,Pointy Shoes,Midnight Low......and many other songs.
in fact, Violins & Torn Together went on to be sizeable charting hits in europe in 1985.
i miss you Vic!!!!!
