This is juts a really cool, old school Friendly Encounters. It is somewhere around 30 years old, but the star is one of the biggest I have ever featured here.
I met Mike Cichowicz many years ago at AU Sports and Memorabilia Back then, I had no idea the jersey-wearing sports nut was an excellent musician. In fact, Mike had played with many of the greatest all over the music scene.
When I was growing up, Rod Stewart was pretty darn cool. I am sure Mike had a lot of fun hanging with Rod and his buds. At least in thee picture below, it looks like they are having fun. I am pretty sure laying on a beach with Rod and his band would be guaranteed fun.
Mike has also put together a book series on Vincent Cichowicz (his father) with Mark Dulin. The series covers the elder Cichowicz's trumpet teaching materials. You can get more info on Vincent Cichowicz at Balquhidder Music.
