  1. hey all! i dont suppose anyone here knows alan spenner, or how to reach him by chance?

    my friend bought a stolen bass in either 1970-71-72 from a puerto rican kid in buffalo who said he scooped it a few weeks before from a band called spooky tooth. he recounted the story to me and said he intended to give it to its rightful owner when he bought it. so... if any of you guys know how to reach this alan spenner guy, please let me know, its make an older guy's day...well...35 years really.
    thanks again,

    His playing in Superstar inspired me when I was young, and I found it impossible to duplicate when I did the show myself this year. His great talent is missed.
