Gary Phillips remembered
Another figure and celebrity from my Rather Ripped days is also gone, dying of cancer the same day as my fiend Rick. Gary Phillips was a great guitarist and played in Copperhead with John Cippolina, Earhquake, the Greg Kihn Band, Sudden Fun,and worked at Berserkeley Records with great legends such as the Rubinoos and Jonathan Richman.
He used to hang with us at Rather Ripped and we would bust his stones constantly. He was a fun guy who LOVED powerpop, Rock and Roll and shooting the shit, A special blog has been set up here:(http://garyphillips.blogspot.com/) in memory of another great rocker who died way too soon.
