  1. The Arizona-based Viceroys on Ramco are actually spelled Vice-Roys.

  2. Mike Metko was a very good friend of mine while I lived in Phoenix. I met him actually when he took-up running marathons and 10K road running. After knowing Mike this way, I would go to where ever he was palying his sax in a band out and about the Phoenix area. He use to tell me about his days of playing at JD’s and Mr. Lucky’s. The last time I remember seeing him play was at a place in Glendale, AZ – called Mr. Nice And Nasty’s. He died of Cancer in the mid-90’s. The last time I talked to Mike was on the phone – when he was working for the City of Phoenix as a purchasing agent. Larry
