This will be a regular opinion piece relating to Tommy. It is purely MY OWN VIEWS and many will disagree with me, but that's OK, as responses and open debate are always a healthy thing. If anyone is offended by what I say, I apologise, but I just want to encourage a good healthy Tommy dialogue.

Blast from the Past – with Bobby Berge!
Hi, David, this is a pic from an audition for a record Co. in L.A. I dont recall which Co. The time period was Jan or Feb 1975, Tommy called me in Boulder Jan 1st , 1975 (New Years Day, of all days!) and asked me to come out and play in his band. I loaded up my 1964 Rambler wagon and headed out to L. A. – this was the first attempt at a Tommy Bolin Band in L.A. – it was Tommy, Stan Sheldon, Ronnie Baron (from Dr. John band), and ME. It was a short lived band, we didnt get signed by the record Co. We did play a gig in Denver at Ebbits Field, probably in Feb or March, but the project was short lived and fizzled shortly after that gig – soon there-after ( spring of 1975), Tommy would hook up with Deep Purple, Stan with Frampton, and me with my old friend, Buddy Miles...

GOING BACK TO COLORADO /
2 CD release of the remastered original release with a wealth of unreleased studio and live material.
Due for release 8th July 2016
Here's the Promo video for the upcoming release ‘Going Back to Colorado/Leaving Colorado’ 45th Anniversary. As you can see, lot's of other new things happening as well. There are many other very exciting things in the pipeline, but ENJOY this for now...
This video has some old reworked footage (admittedly with Robbie Chamberlin, but Robbie features also on some of the rare earlier tracks) and a hint of UNSEEN VIDEO - which , believe me, is stunning. Anyway, this is just a wee ‘Teaser’ for now.
New, revised website featuring Zephyr and Tommy Bolin. Rare photos, video and insights into the band. There is a load of great material still left in the vaults, and with David Givens at the control seat, quailty will always be paramount...
