Danny Young 1941-2008

Danny Young passed away yesterday at 4:42 PM in Austin, Texas. Danny is a significant person in the South Texas Stomp saga because it was his place, Young’s Pizza, that gave birth to Scurvy Otto and the Rickets and because he was a fixture in my and Kaye’s life at the Methodist church in Kingsville. The Rickets played their first gig on the patio of Young’s Pizza on Halloween 1983. Scott Conard, the owner of Young’s after Danny left for Austin, gave us the break and was a close friend of Danny’s.

I had talked to Danny just before heading out to London and was looking forward to his reaction to what we’ve created. I think he would have enjoyed it.
