We've lost Johnny Maestro, lead singer of the Crests & The Brooklyn Bridge. As a die-hard Rockabilly & a Doo-Wop fan, this one hits hard. I had the pleasure of seeing him several times & he was a fantastic performer right up til the end. I'm seriously heartbroken about this one. He played every year at Lead East in NJ & was really dynamic. He never stopped singing & could still hit every note. Off the stage, he was just a wonderful, genuine person who's really going to be missed. Godspeed my friend & thanks for the great tunes.

Bud Cockrell, original bassist and vocalist for Marin-based band, Pablo Cruise.

He wrote and sang lead vocals on "Place in the Sun" and sang co-lead on "Watcha Gonna Do (When She Says Goodbye)". We dated for a while in 1984, during which time he (and a couple of his original Pablo band mates) were responsible for one of the most perfect days of my life in what was formerly Jerry Garcia's house on the Stinson side of Mt. Tam. We reconnected for a short time about 12 years ago when he was living in San Juan Bautista. He moved back home to Mississippi when his dad got sick, then stayed when his own diabetes started to cause him serious health problems.

Bud died in his sleep on March 6, 2010, at the age of 59. Rest in peace, my friend.

True Southerners know how to make an insult sound like a compliment...bless her heart! I watched it too - hey, we all have shows we hate to admit watching! Like Doctor Who!
