Re: I enjoyed it immensely !

by David Sager

The late Peter Levinson's biography of TD =Livin' in a great big way= is a trove of stories about Tommy, some complimentary, others not so. But it does offer a balanced, though exhausting, view of him.

I think a way to describe him during his heyday, would have been "unpredictable" or "volatile." The also late Richard M. Sudhalter describes him vividly in =Lost chords=. He says something about "curious streaks of generosity..."

"Curmudgeonly" may have better described this later period: twenty-some years on the road, the band business failing, a third failed marriage and bruised ego, etc...
