I know that raccoon !!!
- he used ta be in Flora and Airto's band for a while til they caught him going thru their trash.

He had a brief spell with the Fania All Stars when he collared me in a bar after and swore blind that he played the shaker on Girl From Ipanema and toured with Astrud G for a while til they caught him going thru her trash.

He can still wax on forever about his time with the Beatles, of course, and how Paul wrote that song about him. He said the story in the song wasn't quite true to life but you could tell he was still proud of it. He told me you can hear him briefly on Revolution #9. He used to have late drum jams with Ringo late into the night. He said they all parted on good terms even after they sacked him when they caught him going thru their trash.

He went on to jam with Malo for a while in the 70s, then a spell with El Chicano -  then i lost track of him.

So he's gone solo huh?
Cool that you caught one his gigs. Hes a nice guy but I'd keep an eye on yer trash, Crick.
