Biskit R.I.P. 'Papa' Phillips (19) RE: BS: R.I.P. 'Papa' Phillips 19 Mar 01


I knew him for awhile in so.California(Palm Springs)and i knew him as a really sweet man who took the time to listen to my music, Of course when I first met him I was in awe,...WHOA! Papa John! I being a child of that era, but he was quickly able to help me put that aside and we just enjoyed each others company after that,playing music, talking,...about addiction,music, politics, and trading views on what we thought the "60's" meant, or if in fact "meant" anything at all!? None of us are perfect, we all make mistakes in judgement, some worse than others, Had it not been for Papa John, There never would have been a Monterey Pop Festival, Jimi may well have been an also ran, He did alot of positive,(behind the scenes) things for young musicians, as well as some old burned out ones, he had bragging rights,but didn't use them. Before you start judging maybe you should look at the whole picture, Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone! If it sounds like I'm taking up for him or trying to preserve a memory,you're right Damnit I am! and i'd do the same for anyone I called friend. PEACE(through understanding)-Biskit-
