The Smothers Brothers

The Smothers Brothers
Dickie Smothers came to the bar one night with a young lady. We hit it off and talked to the early hours. He had just bought a vineyard in California and we had great conversation on wine. They were playing the Royal York Hotel the next night so I got a date and went. for twenty bucks to the Maitre De I got a front row table. The Smothers show was fantastic and Dickie saw me from the stage and after the show invited us upstairs to a private party they were hosting for the cast of Chorus Line. He introduced me to Tommy and in the course of the night they mentioned they were looking for some drugs. I laid some tranquilizers and grass on them from my personal stash to tide them over. I ran into the next night and it was obvious they had found some.
