Re: “Best Reggae

We've been patrons for 20+ years Neon Prophet was the defining factor when making our decision to move to Tucson. Met those guys at Kontiki in early 1994 during our first trip to Tucson to look at homes prior to the relocation of 5000 employees and families from California with then Hughes Missile Systems. Upon reaching the hotel room after seeing them perform, my husband said to me, "Honey, we can move to Tucson. They got Neon Prophet." The rest is history!!!

I pass him a number of times each week, usually standing near the Quick mart in our neighborhood. Always I wave and smile, just to show a friendly face. I talked to the Quick mart employees once about him, worried the first time I saw him a few days in a row standing in the heat of summer. They said he's always quiet, didn't like it when people got too close to him, and that he lived nearby in a good place. People set water bottles near him, too; it seems he's known all around. Thank you for his story.

So like Leo... picture of an Airstream ... Leo sees a double wide. Kind of like how he sees the borderlands...
