Just found out today that Boris passed away. I hadn't heard from him in several years and I'm sad that he's gone. We grew up together since Jr.High, did lots of drama together (onstage and off) and played alot of music. I remember The Cajuns playing in The Sink, Tulagi, the Honeybucket, and the Buff Room. Boris used to say that when the band was playing well and the room was rockin', it was "the most fun you could have with your clothes on". I think he was right. Listen to Dobie Gray singing "Eddie's Song". He's talking about Boris... R.I.P. Boris. Chuck

I remember playing a modified form of mumbly-peg with Lynn using our pocket knives up in the loft where theatrical materials were stored. In 1970 he sent me a letter from San Francisco extolling the virtues of the city and the scene and encouraging me to come out. I did. I never found him, in fact I never saw him again, but it was the start of a series of adventures for me. Will always remember him well.
