Re: “Almost Famous

Been following your writing for quite a few years. Great story. I'd love to see that original People spread and a few pics of you and Doug too. I remember hearing about his death all those years ago and hearing that he was the real writer of their most famous songs and how they treated him. Split my dedication from "them" to "him" although I didn't have to. I did not like any of their follow ups genuinely. But I have a cover shot that I've used time and time again on my FB page and I think it was from your original article. It says "Tomorrow we can drive around this town...let the cops chase us around...the past is gone but something might be found to take it's place...". It's just blue sky and people's hands in the air in a convertible if I'm not mistaken. Anyway...no one really knows but that's about Doug for me. I'm a fan and I don't know how anyone could have saved him from himself but I wish he'd had a chance. You were a great friend to him. I mean it.
