Richard Manuel's last performance anniversary.

It was 23-yrs ago today that The Band's Richard Manuel performed his last live show prior to his passing away the following morning. Included is a link to the history of Winter Park, FL's Cheek to Cheek Lounge @ 839 North Orlando Avenue, which is now a CVS Pharmacy. Photographer Bob Leaf @ http://www.bobleaf.com/ includes a photo of Manuel in NYC about one month prior to his passing. The undated pic included in this post is of the restaurant / lounge prior to becoming the Cheek to Cheek.

Thanks for the plug, man, but no one's gonna find it unless you spell my name right.
