I already knew Spector ... but Willy introduced me to Ben E King, the Drifters, Arthur Alexander ... those magic moments.

I'll always remember those magic moments, at the Olympia, and some others.

My guardian angel

Mink DeVille was a great band, one of the very best to emerge from that CB's scene.

For some reason beyond my ken, they were too ignored by the fans and the critics, it seems to me. I can only guess they were too R&B for punks, too cool for the mainstream oafs? Who knows? I gave up trying fathom morons eons ago - a waste of time and effort.

RIP, Willy.
