Lots of Divorces in the USA John, perhaps his mother remarried and the new 
husband adopted him and they changed his name and he was raised as a Lewis 
rather than a Cregg.  I was not aware of this, but I do know Huey and see him once 
or twice a year so I will try to rememebr to ask him next time I see him.  
Inquiring minds just gotta know, :))

Being the kid of a musician ain't no easy life, almost as hard as being a 
wife no doubt.

I did pretty well since I am a drummer and not a Real Musician, mine all 
survived it pretty well, however none of my three sons want anything to do with 
the music business, they all think I work too hard to have all this fun.
