That guy in the pic was my friend Paul who was a great honored jazz bass player. Damn shame we lost him to an accidental drug overdose. Someone slipped him some Fentanyl couple years ago at a party.
Anyways you'd never recognize me by that photo. T'was before I vacationed in Colombia a lot in the late 70's.
I was living/working in La Paz/Oruro/Catavi/Siglo XX Boliva for about half of 1975. The week Columbia legalized pot and coke, the side walk cafes/bars in La Paz became like ghost towns as the foreigners (mostly Americans) split for Bogota. A major exodus. I was rooming with a lawyer from Florida who was working for U.S Gov. and the Bolivian manager for Avianca Airlines - the latter said their bookings to Columbia was thru the roof for weeks. Spent some time in Peru, but never made it to Columbia.
