|Happiness is a Warm Fuzztone: The Remaining Few. L-R: Jim (Rona) Wyman (organ), Ed Fischer (drums), Buzz Graham (bass guitar), Paul Cooler (lead guitar). Photo taken in the Corbin-Olson cafeteria in the fall of 1966 at Western Illinois University.|
Bev was the girlfriend of Buzzy Graham, who was the bass player in my band at Western Illinois University in 1966-67 called The Remaining Few.
Bev and Buzz were an item when I began playing in The Remaining Few in October of 1966, and they dated throughout my tenure with the band. Unfortunately, Bev and Buzz broke up, Buzz married a Macomb High girl, and both Bev and Buzz went on with their lives . . . their completely separate lives.
Another "unfortunately" is that Buzz died at the age of 58 in 2008. He was a reading instructor at Rock Valley College in Rockford at the time of his death.
There is some unhappiness in the above words so let's get to the happiness part of this posting.
