    Yep and many people thought he was from Indiana due to him always performing that song at that event.

    I thought he was long since gone.

    But I must have been thinking of Bob Denver.

    Anyone else mix the two up?

    Ya know Ron, I get it with the Elton John thing but the fact that you mentioned "Grease" just kills it. ;)
