87! What a great run! Gotta relate my own LR experience...I used to be the A1 at a casino and had him in for a few shows(talking 20 years ago). We had a beautiful 9' Steinway for him to play but the only way it would work was if we installed a midi kit to trigger a Roland piano module. Seems he was half deaf and we measured the volume of his monitors(at the piano) at 127db Then, he had his manager stick a video tape in every VCR in every office or dressing room, and collect them after the show so nobody could bootleg it from the theater's security camera. He did put on a heckuva show(on stage AND off). RIP

I worked with Richard in the 70s. One of the best times in my life.

RIP my friend.
