A Little Lifting Up for a Friend

Tony Dupuis from Lake Charles, LA informed me on Saturday evening that his father passed away. Tony's mother was holding him in her arms when he died.

I don't know about you, but I think that is pretty awesome and shows what real love is all about. He was pretty much alert up until the end, which is amazing.

Tony and I went to high school together at Sam Houston High School in Moss Bluff, LA just north of Lake Charles.

Tony has several CDs out. He is also a wonderful painter, for which I give him some grief as to how he paints, but it is amazing what he does. Many of his CDs are available at Target (online), CDBaby, Amazon and many more. So he is no amateur by any means.

Here is a link to his MySpace page so you can listen to some of his music. While you listen scroll down and read his "About Tony Dupuis" THEN just take a look at some of the people that have linked to his "Friend" section...yeah, you will be surprised. He really is that good and respected in the music industry!

Click the CD graphic at the top and you can see what is available at CDBaby. You can also do a search for "Tony Dupuis" on Amazon and Target. While you are looking, order something, it will help him tremendously.

Tony and I have tried to support each other, via phone for a few years now. Encouraging and remembering old times, which mainly consisted of being stupid...but it still makes us laugh.

He is a great...no, no, no...awesome drummer and has played with so many of the top performers. Some of whom were in bands that we all grew up with a billion years ago.

I wish Tony and his entire family the very best. I am glad and honored to be his friend.
