Michael and I became friends at the pilot tavern about 65 or 66 just before he became a hollywood star. We were friends for many years and even made a movie together 'Double Negative' We got together any times. My favourite memory might be when he was dating Jacqueline Bisset he brought her to Toronto for Robert Markle's huge birthday party at the masonic hall. They got into a fight and as one of the few people she knew I got to dance with her most of the night stoned on acid.
I had no idea he was friends with Nick
Nick had a membership in my booze can and often came to Toronto for the weekend.
He came to my bar a half a dozen times.I guess I was his secret hideaway. I wish I had more to say but he was intelligent and engaging and I was always glad to see him and enjoyed talking to him. I was very surprised when I found out who he was and very sad when he died so young.
