Hi Guy's
For the record we need to let the public know the names of Mel & Tim's band members, the music of The Duo: The MT3 was the power trio of the Rythym Section, consisting of: Ty Woods on Guitar.....Steve Murray on Bass...&...Michael Grimes on Drums. The two guys stacking all of the musical layers on top were Boo Boo and Benny Wilson, both on Keyboards. Fellows, little did we know,
all those years ago we were making musical history. I'm proud to have been one of you. Lots of love, Sincerely, Michael G. alias
Butter-Roll, The Drummer.

I can verify the foregoing from Steve because we played togeher as part of M&T's rode band. I was the keyboard player. Hey,
Steve remember London?

I forgot to mention that Tim died in 1986. Mel still lives in St. Louis, having recently retired from the Bi-State Development Corp. where he was a bus driver after his career in music. He is currently a Djay for various events and functions.

Thanks, Brad for the info. Actually Mel and Tim endured only a one-year hiatus. I was the bass player in the group and we continued working.Stephen Murray - St. Louis, Mo
