John Halsey

I remember meeting drummer John Halsey, of Patto and the Rutles, at the world famous Rutles secret three song reunion concert at the Pig and Whistle in Hollywood. Told him a pal had given me a one of a kind Patto tee shirt. Which is true, the first album cover emblazoned on a tee shirt about five sizes too small. John looked at me, sighed, and said why? One of my favorite rock’n’roll memories.
