Does anyone know what John has been doing since FZ crossed the bridge? Is he still alive? Guarding another celebrity?

Last saw John at a Project/Object show 16 February 2002 at The Recher Theatre in Towson, Maryland. He was using a cane and with his wife, Freckles. They live in Baltimore.

That should still stand. Last year at the Baby Snakes screening in LA Ahmet said John was in Baltimore with Freckles.

FRECKLES????Man, that's a tough name for your woman to have. How do you talk dirty to a woman named Freckles? "Mmmm... move dat ass, Freckles... wooo... now put your legs up on mah shoulders, Freckles... oooh, oooh... where's the Nivea lotion?" Doesn't work for me.

I always thought it was "that looks like it freckles [if] let out once a month".

Like, too sensitive to sun or something...

John is a character. When I saw FZ in Buffalo in November 1981, he was prowling the stage wearing a karate gi.

At times he was more of an attraction than the band...

John Smothers once threw me out of a room. I was in a small room backstage at the old Palladium on 14th Street in New York with Frank and a couple of press people. Someone asked Frank a question and I thought his answer was funny, so I laughed out loud (in retrospect, I thought he was making a joke and he wasn't, so my laughter was inappropriate). A few seconds later, John put his ham-like hands on me and steered me out of the room and closed the door. I was mortified.
