These Tarriers disbanded in April of 1964. Weissberg had a National Guard obligation and Cooper required surgery for a heart problem. Brickman went on to "The New Journeymen."

They did re-form later that year but without Brickman. A fellow by the name of Al Dana was added in his place. That may be the opening your friend missed out on due to the draft.

These 3 Tarriers were the last. They continued to perform, but finally ended their run in late 1965 after touring Eastern Europe.

I was never able to find out anything more about Al Dana (the last Tarrier). What was his history before or after joining the group? If anyone has additional information, please post it.
