i remember when i worked downtown "where i met carl" i would hang out with him during my lunch break everyday sneak out just to talk to him... he was a very smart optimistic man in my eyes.. we would talk just about everything from the weather to music , his upcoming gigs you name it we talked about it... he really made me see local music in a whole different view.. i will miss him very much and my heart goes out to his family and friends .. rip brother
