Hey Jersey- Brian Howe

Jersey, I see in DM that Brian Howe of Bad Company band died en route to hospital. It just says Florida but I believe he lived here in Lee on FMB. I believe his wife’s name is Sunny (or former wife, early 2000s when I knew) .
I couldn’t get thru to you on tumblr ask. Something about a bad link.

Hey Anon, My Tumblr ask is turned off, because it stays on Tumblr where my website goes to Tumblr and Twitter.  You are correct, he has a house on Fort Myers Beach.  He had moved to Lake Placid, FL.  He had an amazing voice and was fantastic in Concert, I saw them in Philadelphia, Mann Music Center, David Lee Roth opened for them. 

Do you live in Lee County?  FMB rocks! I used to work at the Lani Kai when I was 16 back in the 70s.

Lyrics
Johnny was a schoolboy
When he heard his first Beatles song
‘Love Me Do’ I think it was
And from then it didn’t take him long
Got himself a guitar
Used to play every night
Now he’s in a rock ‘n’ roll outfit
And everything’s alright
Don’t you know? Don’t you know?
Johnny told his Mama
“Hey, Mama, I’m goin’ away
I’m gonna hit the big time
Gonna be a big star someday”
Mama came to the door
With a teardrop in her eye
Johnny said, “Don’t cry Mama
Smile and wave goodbye”
Don’t you know?
Everybody, yeah!
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are
Well, Johnny made a record
Went straight up to number one
Suddenly everyone loved
To hear him sing the song
Watchin’ the world go by
Surprisin’ it goes so fast
Johnny looked around him and said
“Well, I made the big-time at last!”
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are
Johnny died one night, died in his bed
Bottle of whiskey, sleeping tablets by his head
Johnny’s life passed him by like a warm summer day
If you listen to the wind you can still hear him play
Don’t you know? Don’t you know?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know? Don’t you know?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know? Don’t you know?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know? Don’t you know?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know? Don’t you know?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know that you are a shooting star?
All the world will love you just as long
Long as you are
A shooting star
