Fred Tackett on

In answer to all the inquiries about Tom Jans, I am sorry to say that Tom died a bunch of years ago now. I was lucky enough know him and work on two of his solo albums in the '70's. As a matter of fact, a close examination of his albums will reveal the precursor to Texas Twister. I had written the guitar lick for Texas Twister back in the '70s and when we were recording on the songs on Tom's record, Jeff Porcaro and I were jamming on that guitar lick and Tom liked it so , we stuck an instrumental Jam with David Lindley and myself and the rest of the studio band in the middle of one of Tom's songs. Our sound man from long ago, Craig Schertz, found this record and used to play it before our shows. I don't remember the song but I bet some one can find it.

This song may be "where did all my good friends go".
