Every once in a while, a great while, i.e. not very often, but it happens, really, OK it happened once, the suggestion is made, or it was made (really; that one time it was made), "Put more of yourself on the site."

Accordingly, here's some pictures of me, or maybe not, Yours Truly, Rich Piellisch, aka Peach, aka North Beach Peach, aka The Weedwhacker...

Special, Special, Special Thanks to Frank Orcino of The M.O. Blues Band for arranging an especially terrific jam at New George's in San Rafael on Wednesday the 18th of September (2002 it was)...

September 18 it was, yer sitemaster's birthday, and Yours Truly got to play not only with Zanne Mack, a new star on the local blues scene, but to jam with none other than Tommy Castro, who most magnanimously came out and played and sang and made it a very, VERY special evening for ye olde (and how) North Beach Peach.

Also playing with great distinction was stalwart drummer Andrea Drane; Mack DaddyZ bassman Larry Beresford and drummer Dean Carmen Leto; Pat Martinez on guitar; Mario Fastlearn on bass; the various lads of The M.O. Blues Band, including the inimitable Frank Orcino on guitar, and everyone else who came on out.

Thanks again to one and all, and Here's to another five-oh, as good as the first!

we trust that'll do
