John : You and I have exchnged remembrances of B @ T before - the last time, I believe, was in March of 2005 - the 45th anniversary of that magical night. I saw them perform four times during their heyday - the last one was in a small folk club in Buena Park, just after they got back together from their first parting. It also was a memorable night - I've preserved the memories in the recollections portion of his website. After their final breakup, I saw Bud at the old McCabe's shop in Santa Monica where I toyed with the idea of studying flamenco with him. However, my monetary resources did not rise nearly as high as my ambitions. They truly were one of the most entertaining and talented duo I have ever heard or seen.
