Hi all,

not to exhaust a thread in the name of our many arts, but Carol Doda 
became the featured act of the Condor Club where my good friend (and 
late Drum General  of the Los Trancos Woods Community Marching Band) 
Arf Pitney was bartender. His wake was well attended by many noted San 
Francisco figures - Carol was there as well;-)   Arf once told me he 
was working at the Condor the night before the infamous piano thing 
happened - the police had all sorts of interesting questions...

Also, I was listening to Public Radio a few days ago and there was a 
discussion on  artists and painting as an occupation. One of the people 
interviewed was the singer Tony Bennett. He started out as a painter, 
went to art school and everything - apparently it was not until much 
later in his life that he became a professional singer.
http://www.benedettoarts.com  is his website for paintings. he is 
certainly not a dadaist!
