Musician
    (February 3, 1954-February 9, 2008)
    Born in Muscatine, Iowa
    Birth name was Thomas Scot Halpin
    Visual artist and amateur drummer
    Sat in with the Who at the Cow Palace in San Francisco for three numbers after Keith Moon passed out in mid-concert (November 20, 1973)
    He bought tickets from a scalper for the concert.
    He took the stage when Pete Townshend asked, 'Can anyone play the drums? I mean someone good,' even though he had not played in over a year.
    Although he played well enough on a jam of the blues songs 'Smokestack Lightning' and 'Spoonful,' he had trouble following the more complex 'Naked Eye.'
    Fame from the gig got him an audition for Journey, but he was turned down.
    Rolling Stone magazine dubbed him 'Pick-Up Player of the Year.'
    Roger Daltrey reportedly promised to pay him $1,000, but failed to follow through.
    He was given a Who concert jacket, which was stolen later that evening.
    He lived out every fan's dream.
