Greetings. I am amazed and delighted to find all of this history. What can I say... I was there too.
I don't see Tina's name anywhere. Does anyone remember the 'earth mother'? or have I just missed something. Still alot of exploring to do.
I went to the fund-raiser for Billy Landlis at the Blue Goose Inn... does anyone remember that? I knew he probably not made it, but never knew for sure..
anyone remember Laurent Goslin? hung out with Victor, Ralph and the others...
god. I'm in Austin texsas now, a million years later.

Hi Susan,

Good to hear from you. Did you have any particular favorite hang-outs?
Also, are you referring to Tina Dyc? If so you're right! I shall place her at the first opportunity.
Can you tell me more about Billy Landis and Laurent Goslin?
Hope the weather is fine in Austin.

Thanks Stephen.
Cobbs was clearly the favorite, but other adventures included the Bronx, 3rd Ave., The Red Carpet, there were a couple of places across from the Fisher Bldg. with live music... sometimes Retro or Billy. We would follow Shadowfax out to the suburbs whenever they went. There was a small club in Grosse Pointe Park where I remember going to see Dave O'Patik play a few times.

Laurent Goslin hung around with Victor, Spence, Hunt. I'm not sure what his deal was but I think that Mike Roper or George might remember him too.

After I left TJ's I managed a small bistro in the old Shelby Hotel downtown, 'Lips'. Joe Mayday, Marilyn's husband and his friend owned it. She worked there for awhile as did a few other of the cass corridor girls... Marcia Piliciotti, Suzy Wahl's sister, Jeanne Zanke-penny, others I can't recall now. We had lots of visitors from the cass corridor crowds.

Eventually, I ended up opening a restuarant on Elizabeth St. and John R.
Years before, Sarah McKay had operated there. I was in business there until the new Tiger Stadium plans were made and my property was in the way. End of a 10 year successful run.
Before moving to Austin I managed the Ferry Street Inn for a couple of years until becoming defeated by the stresses of racial politics. ugh.

It turns out that Tina is already on the site. I found her at the closing party for the International Tribe. She hosted the party. Lots of great pictures!! Tina Andrecki. I thought she might still by in Florida..

Billy Landless. What is there to say. He was a classic gentleman and lady's man. All of the women loved him, and David, and Bobby, and Daniel, Bill and on & on. There was such a giant group of cool people.

Billy Reid read my palm one night and everything he told me has come to be. I wish I had 'gotten it' then. I'd love to go back for a few days and re-live a slice.

thanks for all you do and I look forward to visiting frequently. And by the way, the weather in Austin sucks. Since I have been here I have been through 3 tornados, straight-line winds, a hurricane, a drought, endless heat, and now flooding. I love the drama though.

I'm glad you mentioned 'Lips'. I well remember Marilyn Maday (Now Tsushia)used to work there - we were lovers, then very good friends and remain so. Marilyn moved to NY in the early 80's, then married and moved to Seattle, where she lives now. Email and phone number available upon request.
I have added the two Billy's to the Cobbs Corner tribe. Tell me they never went in there! :-)

Did you ever come into Lips when you were seeing Marilyn? One of the first things I think of when visualizing Marilyn was the day that she came into work with her pajamas on. She had been arrested that morning on her front porch for parking tickets and had just been released from jail. Detroit was doing some kind of a 'round up' for revenue and they were booting and arresting all the folks who had 'lots' of tickets. Everyday Marilyn came to work at Lip's she got a ticket. She was always in a rush and running late so she would leave her car in the alleyway. She was Shocked when they actually arrested her. I loved her, she was one of a kind.

I remember that day, and in retrospect, it makes me smile.
I got a call early in the morning from Marilyn. She was in jail for parking violations. I recall coming down and signing for her, springing her out of jail.

Yeah - she was really, really miffed.
