You're so right Rizz!! It was Chris Richards...my mom knew his mom...LOL! I wasn't on Alex's side...I sat right on the front of the stage and just watched Chuck Billy as he towered over me.....he is normally a big dude but he looked a hundred feet tall from my view. I also had my head smashed when Green Jello performed Three Little Pigs....they had these chicks holding pig puppets and we all clocked heads...knocked me for a loop. I also remember seeing Testament at the Roxy a couple of years later but Alex wasn't there.

The best part of Beefsteak Charlies was the salad bar and the all-you-can-eat shrimp.

I can't think of any place now that offers all you can eat chilled shrimp


BF...still wish somebody else remembered "Reds"!

Here's a few more:

Gouz (sp?) rhymes with cows - best juices
110 drive-in flea market
When Nathans in Oceanside had the big stage
Freeport Movie Theater turned into a nightclub for a few months
Channel 80 by boat

Anyone remember the name of the band that did the Speaks commercials?

I met Billy Joel when he was still with the Hassels in the late 60s and playing at the Night Owl in the Village where I used to waitress part time.

Ah, the memories.
