RIP to Pepe Marchello, of The Good Rats (from Long Island) who died a few days ago of a heart attack at his home. He was 68.
The Good Rats were one of my first concerts. I saw them in a shopping mall (Willowbrook, Wayne, New Jersey) at age 13 or 14.
They were a lot of fun and tossed rubber rats into the audience. I regret that it was the only time I got to see them.
Pepe will be missed!
