So I got the complete "peach cobbler" DVD vine in the mail today. As usual I gave it to my 19 year old nephew to copy. He appreciates the ABB but is certainly not a fanatic.

Anyway, he hands me back the discs & says "You didn't tell me those were Captain Skipper shows. That guy's a legend."

I resemble that remark ...

Being "abroad" (NOT a "broad") ... I can certainly affirm that Skip is a legend over here in the UK ... ROCK ON SKIP!!!!!

Very cool! Skip is the bomb (and a very kind soul to boot!)

I owe Skip a debt of gratitude. My music collection keeps getting better as I upgrade and add Capt. Skipper remasters.

Don't know Skip personally. Have only talked to him once via phone.

I can tell with all that he has done, he is a person I definitley need to shake hands with and hang out. Hopefully one day on the not too distant future

I haven't met Skip in person....yet....nor have we spoken by telephone. We have exchanged PM's and a few e-mails. But when I received my Capt. Skipper remaster of the 9/16/71 Warehouse show and saw he had personalized it to me, not only was I blown away, I was HONORED that he had taken the time to do that for me. Skip is a brother from another mother. I look forward to one day shaking his hand and enjoying some killer music together. And he's got some talented artist daughters, too!

So what is it? Is he a broad or a man? Nyuk, nyuk. Skip is great. He has taken so many hard to listen to shows and made them very enjoyable. He did a great favor for me a few years ago that I was able to pass along to many friends. I'm forever indebted to him for his efforts. Cap't Skipper is the best.
