A Gathering After Glen's Funeral
October 24, 1997 - The Pizza Ranch - Clarion, Iowa
In honor of Glen Buxton's birthday today - and in 2017, it would have been his 70th - we present a unique video of some of his former bandmates and friends sharing their memories of him. This was recorded at the Pizza Ranch in Clarion, Iowa on October 24, 1997, one of Glen's favorite spots in his adopted town of 3000. This was where the reception following Glen's funeral was taking place.
Present before Lonesome Roadie's cameras that day were:
* Rockin' Reggie Vinson
* Michael Bruce
* Neal Smith
* Dennis Dunaway
* John Stevenson (friend of Glen, helped convince him to move to Iowa)
In the video, you will hear:
* Michael and John talk about how they found Glen in Phoenix, and convinced him to go to Iowa
* A few PG13-type stories about the old days from Neal and Reggie
* Dennis share some memories that would be included in his future book
The tape is twenty years old now, and there a couple of glitches... Please bear with it.
