Neil was joined by his friends John Altman, Joel Druckman, Rutling Ken Thornton & Greg Stevens. Laurie Stevens & Bonnie Wells [who created and manage Neil’s website at www.neilinnes.org] sing backup the entire night and Laurie tells me later that Neil let her and Bonnie hand pick the entire set for this evening.  It is a fan’s dream come true.  What a job they’ve done.  And it is all being filmed for a future documentary on Neil to be screened in 2008 with the title:  The 7th Python.  The camera is over in the corner of the lobby and Brett Hudson is asking people to offer up stories about Neil.  I think this was the last time I saw Bruce Gary before the dear soul perished…
