A thanks large enough to fill an airport goes to Don Aters. You may know him as the best friend of super promoter Chet Holms. Maybe the name sticks out because his photo of Grace Slick in 1968 is one of the most noted rock pictures ever. He is a great friend. Countless Sundays with work up to his head, he still has time to call and see how my dad is feeling.

Don thank you for being a terrific person. Your work speaks for it self and how you handle friendship there aren't ways to express it.

All the best,
CF

Don Aters and BB King show and the universe

Postby craigtheairplaneman on Sun Jan 28, 2007 8:34 pm

Hi there:

Thansk for the nice post about Don. He is one of the best of the best. I really likethe way he takes an interest in my dad and has always been tremendous to me. I wish I could do more back.

I would have loved to be 100 percent at BB Kings to not only see Rick Martin (Possible) and Don but obviously the band and I would have had a chance to bring a bunch of Take Me To A Circus Tent.

My dad isn't doing well. He is ver yweak and needs attention almost by the minute. I hope down the road he is well enough so I can see the shows and the great fans that have been so kind about the book.

Have a super week and be well,
CF

Staying with dad

Hi Chain' Destiny:

Thank you for the post! You are right the first priority is to be with dad. He isn't doing well and did not have a good last 24 hours.

Friends/book contacts have been very understanding that I want to do anything within reason for dad (As does my sister).

Have a great week and thank you for caring,
CF
