I just got this from the Replacements mailing list and thought I'd throw it up on this list in the hopes that maybe word gets to Pat. Always had a lot of respect for David J's musical abilities but it's really nice to see someone in his position make the effort that he did.

>Barbara with Mary Lou Lord (he's also playing tonight in Tempe, AZ at Long

>Saturday night or Sunday morning, he'd be able to say hi to Summer and
>it'd give her a big smile. Unfortunately, he's playing in San Diego on
>Sunday night when we'll be in LA or else I'd be setting this up myself
>(and going to see him). If you can get to him somehow and have him call
>collect, I don't care! Drop me a line and I'll give you my home phone

>favorite, The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy) to call her and sing her a tune
>over the phone when she was in the hospital. Slim's one of the nicest

>you e-mail me soon, I can try to call you from my work and let you know
