She also has his musical talent. She too plays keyboard and is in a band. I believe that he was originally from New Jersey, possible Patterson. I vaguely remember a newspaper article about him and his band. His name is Allen (or Alan) Collins. I am guessing that he would be in his mid 60's now. In 1968, he played in the Boston MA area with a band called the "Dream Merchant" and before that, was with the band called "The Younger Brothers" (Vinnie and Paul) I don't know if this post will ever be seen by him or someone that this may sound familiar to, but, for my daughters sake, I had to give it a try. One last thing......she wants nothing from him but to know him. It's a shame too, because he missed out on a fantastic, loving, wonderful, amazing person. I've had the pleasure to have her in my life. What a shame Allen for you to miss out on this beautiful woman. If anyone has any information that may help my daughter finally look into the face of her father, please respond to this posting. Many thanks!

Sounds like you were pretty young and could have been lied to. Maybe he was "with the band" as a roadie.

Wow, my mom did this a while back. It doesn't look like any one has relied to any thing yet so I am going to do it my self.

Misty, he did play keyboards in the band. I dare to dream that some thing will come out of this posting....I do believe that one day I will see his face. Thank you for inquiring about more information. I have nothing but the information christiansnanny originally posted.

I thank all from the bottom of my heart who have provided info on here and I am looking in to the information mascli has given.

Love and Peace <3
