I still can't remember (nor properly pronounce) the name of this instrument you played for "Crazy Train"
So every time I saw it, I would call it a different name...
A "flooperfloppen"
next time it was a "schmiggeradig"
Then it became a "blipperbutt"
Then I saw you in the Lighthouse tavern... you looked RIGHT AT ME (and that's when I took this pic) and you asked me what it was called...
I said "It's a Tony special".
And you gave me your "aw aw" and that BRILLIANT smile...
(and that's about when I gave up trying to remember the actual name and just made up words from then on cause it became our own personal "joke", and you know what? I still don't remember the REAL name of it, and I don't ever want to)
I have SO many wonderful memories...

I'm going to call this instrumet today... the cluppenhaagen! (Gonna miss you)

Miss you already , my friend, just like a brother to me, this is so hard... so many memories and good times through the years . I’ve known you for so long I don’t want to believe you’re gone. You could always make me laugh and I loved you so much. Now you’re rocking it up in heaven but I will never forget you and I will always be there for the family and Donna. I know I will see you again one day 😇 but I would do anything for one more hug . And one more smile . One more song. I will be praying for all of us that we have courage and strength and peace because we are all so sad right now. Miss you Ant! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Don't even know what to say here. You were a great guy... I'll never forget when you played in my backyard for Terry's party and you rocked the house and gave me an extra 2 hours and didn't even bother to take any pay.. and all those Bricks & pavers you gave me for my turtle pond. Always a generous and kind man. Rocking the heavens today and forever. You will be missed
