  1. Dean sure is a really nice guy! I have met him & talked to him after his interview at Fanny “Hill in Eau claire, Wisconsin at Shake Rattle & Roll in 1986! He is so down to earth, so understanding & just an over all super guy! We had a wonderful conversation..and even talked about Rick Nelson! Well, Dean I didn’t want to say what we talked about, but as you know It was all GOOD about Rick..& the Eagles!!! had seen him later at The Chippewa Fair in the 90’s! He gave me a big hug when he seen me! I will never ever forget that! He is so SWEET! The next time I seen him Tamee Show. By the way.I bought the DVD!! I wish I could see Dean again…But we both know that Shake Rattle & Roll is History..just like the Rock & Roll Music!! I wish The Surf City Allstars would come to Turtle Lake Casino!! or Black River Casino also! That’s not far from my house!! Its been a long time since I seen you!(Dean) Ha..Kinda Like Sha Na Na abut that same time frame!!! Well, I always liked the music of Jan & Dean.. No offence Brian….But when Jan & Dean sang some of the same songs you recorded.WELL, I liked Jan & Deans style much better!! But yours were good to!! I only hope that Dean will read this..it will bring back memories for him!! (Those Good Ol’e Rock & Roll Days) We ALL LOVE & MISS!! Rhonda
