Kevin of The HE-TOO’S stopped by today.

THE HE-TOO’S were from The East Side of St Paul; they morphed into the legendary Free and Easy Band. They released a 45 in 1967. Kevin stopped in GoJohnnyGo Records in White Bear Lake today, sold me some records and a record player. Jim Larkin ended up in The Stillroven, Tom Behr manages Free and Easy these days. Tony “Fatty” Tuccitto passed away last year, Bob Behr was a ruffian.

Thanks to MinnePaulMusic for the photo, and to Kevin Heinz for the autograph.
