from what I have read, I think that may be attributable to A Rosner on commission from D Mancuso.... but I dunno for sure....

taken from CSI 100 moments issue #15 1970....

"sonically, the Loft's defining moment moment was when Mancuso commissioned two tweeter array clusters..... used JBL bullet tweeter arrays"

Thanks for

sharing these great pictures of Richard. But I was wondering if you have any pictures of yourself with Richard that you can share with us?

No I do not have any pictures with Richard. But since you have pictures of him and you say you knew him, I thought that you would have some of yourself with him. Thank you

How about it?

This time I saw it coming.

Good to call him on it Scott, it was clear that he is not actually interested in pictures he just wants to try to point out that SAGA is possibly making up stories. Everyone likes to get after him for some dumb reason. I actually like him (whether he knew Richard personally or not is so not important) But I do wish he would STOP ALWAYS TYPING IN UPPER CASE

I was not watching close, OMG he was being a smart ass to Gary not SAGA. What an ass. If he did some research on GSA he would not have to even ask such a dumb question.

Hey Gary how is the baby doing ?

Hello

clubman5 How are you? I want to welcome you to Wave, and give you the opportunity to formally introduce yourself to our forum!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well I did not know that I had to do Q & A about myself to put posts on this board now. I just like to ask some questions to some people on this board that are supposed to be pros in this industry, so thats why I ask questions is that wrong?. That is why these sites are here, to interact and conversate correct? did I ask something offensive at any time?

Well a little something about myself and I wont get too personal. I am from the NYC area, I have been around for a very long time in this scene, I went to all the clubs in those days, I will not reveal my real age here.

I enjoy good sound. I like to ask questions about audio. Since when did asking 2 or 3 questions become grilling somebody? Gary is on this board quite frequent so I wanted to ask him some questions.

I ask some pros on this board questions, is that not what these boards are for ? so why is it when I ask some questions do some lash back at me, namely Gary, Gary are you angry that the questions that I ask you, why else would you get so defensive ?.

I read the last post that you put up in this thread, but it was late that night and I had to wake up the next morning early for work, so I could not reply to it that night. You were asking to stop the witch hunt and got very nasty twards me but I guess you deleted it.

Since when is asking 2 or 3 questions a witch hunt? If you do not want to answer than you should not answer them, you do not have to get nasty with someone that just wants to see pictures of you with Richard, that would have been cool or wants to ask you some questions.

I have even heard alot of your work and know your work pretty well. I do know a bit about Disco sound systems from hanging and Talking with some engineers in the past, and asking about there past experiences in the buisness and they did not get nasty with me, they just answered me and liked the fact that I wanted to learn a little bit about them and their craft without getting to much into details with them.

I read your reply on another thread on this board and that caught my attention and made me raise a eyebrow about you, and IF you were really there or not and knew who you say you really knew.

Your quote Gary, yes I knew Richard I met him in the booth at 54 this was a turning point in my life from being a musician to loving RLA type systems.OH yes I went to the PG and loved it I think about 15 times but I almost lived at 54 6 out of 7 nights a week 1980 until??.

Gary, Studio was closed in that year, so how is this possible that you met Richard or Dick in that year in a club that was not even open? I never recall in those years 54 being open 6 days a week. I dealt with Mike Stone in those days he ran the promotions at Studio then, so I was very familiar with Studio in the 80s.

Another question you claim you went to PG 15 times, Did you have a membership to the Garage? because regular club goers off the street could not just get in that club and party, it was a private club open to members only, so since you visited that room as you say 15 times you must have been a member correct?

What instrument did you play? and style of music did you play?

Torry let me have the pleasure of responding

First, this board is a very close group of friends. While I myself have been guilty of a cat fight or two, my disagreement was sincere.

Your questions, one or 300 was disingenuous it was designed to embarrass Gary and that was not nice. Gary and GSA is highly respected on this board. He is ALWAYS polite and courteous. I doubt strongly that he would ever say he knew or met Richard at 54 if that were not true.

Concerning Paradise Garage I went about 4 times and I was NEVER a member. You claim to have been to clubs like this. Then shame on you and you should know that is was VERY easy to just hang around out front and ask a member to take you in. It was a friendly crowd and it was easy. In fact, the most exclusive and stuck up club was the SAINT. It would even revoke the membership of anyone caught doing what I just said yet from 1984 to 1986 I did it hundreds of times until finally becoming a member in 1986.

Your attempts to veil your attack of Gary are transparent and not appreciated here. We all love Gary and Scott, (I believe he is now the moderator) got it right when he very nicely responded (sarcastically) that you should kewl it but you decided to continue. You wont state your age but even your knowledge of 54 is incorrect and shows how inexperienced you really are. Although 54 may have been officially closed. (wink) it did operate if you were invited by the right people. Just like Crisco Disco did not even possess a license to server alcohol it was open to the public.

Try being honest and no one here will have a problem. Admit that you donít believe Gary if you like but donít be disingenuous its not appreciated

Just my 2 cents

Well, well, look whos here! Torry, how the hell are you? No its not a sin to ask questions! 2 or 3 is ok, more can be even better! How about questions about audio, instead of Gary and Studio 54?

Pretty much everything you say is correct, Studio was closed in 80, so what? It proves nothing other than you were around then.

I dont mind questions, and no, you havent crossed the magic line of where you are really being offensive and talking things that you shouldnt, but do you have anything else to talk about other than Studio and who knew Richard?

Most people that come here seeking something in audio know how, do tend to talk a bit about what they like, and alittle bit about themselves! But, you, you just want to know about Gary!

If you do reach the point where you say something slanderous, or threatening, Ill have no problem with banning you from Wave!

So, watch your step!

BTW, Crisco had a charter! Thats how afterhours operated back then, the city used to issue charters to private clubs, and it was supposed to be membership only, and in the 70,s you had to buy tickets at the ticket window, and use them to get drinks! This system is called `scrip`, and the big legal deal was everything was cool as long as no cash was being handed across the bar! Crude but effective, you werent actually selling drinks or buying drinks!

Later on, like 80, they started taking cash at the bars!

Those were the days when you could get away with things in NYC!

Today, its a different ballgame!

FINALLY after all these years some one explains. I always thought it was so dumb. You gave money at this little window. Then you went to another window and little tickets used to come out and those were what you gave the bartender for a drink. I rememver saying, "This is so stupid" Finally someone who understands the madness. Loved the huge Crisco can also

Those were the days for sure and at the time we did not even realize it
