Re: TOMMY KONO

Mr Kono is a total legend and i am very sorry to read this update. I have his book which he kindly signed for me f.o.c.
He is totally unique, in a league of his own, and always will be, and was light years ahead of his time. My prayers are with him.

Re: In Search of a Photo

Hi I went through my magazines but regret to say I could not find that photo. Had a lot of fun trawling through them though! I hope someone finds it for you.
Best wishes,
