Frenchy Burrito & Timothy Leary

I met Timothy Leary on the campus of the University of Chicago in the late 60’s. He was giving a lecture on LSD and the benefits of psychedelic drugs and I attended it with my friend Pete Moss afterwards we talked with Dr. Leary and I asked him to sign my draft card and he did. He signed it, “You Are A Free Man”. I wish I still had that card but back in those days...Well you know we burned our draft cards.

In my life I’ve spent time on some Islands - first in Bermuda then Freeport Grand Bahama and then Key West Florida. I Lived on all three.

He was trying to solve a mystery about a recording session he was at. This would be going way back to the mid 60's.The person Frenchy was looking for was a fella by the name of Rick Mann onetime guitar player for the Chicago band THE FLOCK. They became fast friends at school. As the story goes -- Rick spotted Frenchy in the school cafeteria one day as Frenchy was strumming on an old beat up F-hole acoustic guitar he had just bought at a pawn shop on State Street. Rick approached Frenchy and helped him out with some guitar chords he was trying to figure out. It was a meeting sort of like Lennon and McCartney.
