“The Orson Welles of Rock ‘n’ Roll” – Errol’s Little (Feat) Neighbor

Errol (and his pet monkey) left a big impression on the kid who lived near him on Mulholland Drive. One he never forgot. Like Errol, he died far too young, but, in his day, this boy grew into the man Jackson Browne called “The Orson Welles of Rock ‘n’ Roll” and Bonnie Raitt declared the best singer/songwriter/guitarist in the world. Lowell George – son of the famous “Furrier to the Stars”, who had a chinchilla ranch right by Mulholland Farm.

so many connections to Flynn and his family with my other interests. I am pretty sure that Rory used to date the Drummer for Yes, Alan White.
