Why is it I’m hearing the music of Karen and Richard Carpenter going on inside my head.
Yep Dave, that’s our fraternity brother Doug Strawn in the middle back.
He played base, keyboard, the clarinet, the sax and sang.
Doug passed away according to A&M records in 2013
What an easy-going, always smiling kid, I’ll never forget that about him.
Doug is rumored to have died after a long bout of fighting cancer, this announced by his daughter. He was survived by his wife and four grown kids.
You know, “We’ve only just begun.”
This guy is incapable of telling the truth, this particular shorty was one of his better ones.
Tragically, Karen’s self-image was not in sync with reality.
She died of bulimia, an eating disorder characterized with forced vomiting each time the bulimic eats.
One on the best soft rock groups of the seventies.
