Dave Bauer


We have received sad news of the passing of Dave Bauer in 2007 at the age of 57. Dave replaced Bryan Post in the Rahgoos when Bryan was put on active duty in the Navy during the Viet Nam war. Bryan was about as good a drummer that a Rock and Roll band could have and we never thought we could replace him. Davy was a Jazz musician, and a good one. His influences were diverse, from Buddy Rich to Mitch Mitchell and studying under Bernard "Pretty" Purdy. After hurried rehearsal with Bryan as his mentor, Dave came through with flying clors. Dave's drumming on the Gandalf LP is a prime example of 60's creativity, and deserves the critical acclaim that it has achieved. After Gandalf, Dave went on to play with Albert King (appearing at the Filmore East) and various New York groups. He will be missed by all friends of GANDALF.


Alan Gordon


I am deeply saddened by the passing of Alan Gordon, and I treasure the many special memories. From the Night Owl Cafe to the uptown studios, I was privileged to cross musical paths with the man. Working with Alan was so much fun, his imagination constantly flowing, bursting with new melodies and ideas. There was never a feeling of pressure, as he always evoked a steady stream of his own brand of hilarity that kept everyone in his presence laughing 'til we cried. He was blessed with an awesome creative energy that filled the room. I can see him now, when he and Garry would present a new song- slapping, clapping and tapping his feet in rhythm, singing the hooky harmonies and horn parts that would eventually endow a hit record. It was amazing. I'll always be grateful for his friendship, inspiration, and encouragement. There are so many songs of love and laughter that he leaves us with, but at this moment I recall the more obscure and reflective ones; Amazing Air, The Cat in The Window, Whatever Happened To Happy? Alan, I'm still singing along! Peter Sando- November 30, 2008
