Rich Cole???
Aug 10th, 2008 at 7:19am
 
Whatever happened to Rich Cole?

And what about Jimmy Marinos?  Are they still doing music, or did they get out of music altogether? I know a few years back Jimmy had the Motor City Rockers, but I haven't heard anything out of him since then.  And I've never heard anything else from rich cole.

I think Rich is doing heating and air conditioning in the Detroit area.  Bookies, didn't you use his services?  He appeared with the Romantics for a coupla Detroit area shows within the last 2-3 years, IIRC.  So did Jimmy, for that matter.

Rich is rehearsing lately with some veteran Detroit musicians playing mostly obscure cover tunes right now. Some originals will work their way into the setlist up the road, probably coming from the bands that these guys were in years past. The drummer was in a band a LONG time ago that played at the Grande Ballroom who's lead singer was Johnny Angelos. The singer in this band has played with Bootsey X and The Lovemasters as well as a short stint in Dark Carnival with Ron Ashton of the Stooges. The guitar player/ (sometimes keyboard player) is just some guy who is a relative of Rich.

Interesting Rich is doing heating and air....seems a lot of musicians who aren't really tied up in the biz anymore do heating and air, or either construction.

I couldn't imagine Jimmy doing heating and air OR construction for that matter.  Can you imagine trying to fit a hard hat over all that hair!

Rich might be playing out next month if the band is rehearsed enough and ready. Things are in the early stages right now. They also have to come up with a name, which hasn't been decided yet.

I'm the one who had Rich install my A/C!  It's keeping me cool as I type! Smiley

Oldfriend--let me know when he plays-- if my hubby's band is not playing, we'll come out and see him!!!

The band has the music down for about 30 songs, but after trying two different guys to be the lead singer, it looks like neither one will work out. Still looking for a singer, preferably someone who can play some guitar as well.

Did you take out an ad on The Romantics site?  Maybe you can convince Wally! Smiley

I told Wally that if he had time for a side project that we would love to have him. He already knows most of the songs. He would be a perfect fit.

It's really getting there now! We could probably play one set right now if we had to, but we're going to tighten this thing up more and add some more songs before we play out, including a few with keyboards since I just got my Vox Continental serviced. Hopefully there will be a gig before Wally leaves with Ringo.
