Metro Sound Off - Letters To The Editor

 I just watched the "One Day at a Time" 30 year reunion and couldn't get over how much Eric Swan looks like Schneider the handyman? Is it true that Eric was the stunt double?
ED NOTE: Actually it was the other way around. Pat Harrington (Schnieder) was a stand-in for Eric Swan at a 1983 Cockroach gig when the song "My Friend Dave" went horribly, horribly wrong. 

Nice job. I liked the music quiz. I was trying to complete it. I am impressed with the winners knowledge.
-John Karalis
ED NOTE: HELLO?!?! There ARE no winners in my trivia quizzes, only people that come close. And we all know being close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and getting a brush-cut from my mom. The editor is the king of all things trivial.

Why Not Sound Off To The Metro


Hey clutch, I was web surfing and came across your web site. I read through the February issue and I thought it was pretty cool. I even took the time to listen to some of the old Cockroach tunes. Boy that takes me back some time. Well, just thought I'd drop you a line to tell you that I'll be reading future McCarty Metros. PS I can't believe we've got kids in college. Where did the time go?
I noticed in all of the family pictures ... I'm always standing behind others and just my head and shoulders are visible. What's the deal with that?
ED NOTE: Well Larz, here is the order... Cowboy outfits and leisure suits are always up front. That's why Steve is guaranteed the front spot. Followed by parents and normal ties. Finally, in back are the brothers that basically have cloth napkins as their choice of neck ties (welcome to the back row!)

Have a cockroach party!!!!!!!!! Dude, I'm still playin' how 'bout you. Check out
-Lance Devue (yea it's Ron, former drummer for the thingy-roaches)
ED NOTE: Because of the blatant use of the McCarty Metro to promote your NEW band, I refuse to answer. However, I will let Eric Swan answer this on the Metro Message Board. Lance De Vous !!! I thought you were homeless living on the streets of New York (oh, that might have been Peter Criss of Kiss). Drug overdose? (nah...that was Keith Moon) Drowned in a swimmin' pool? (nope ...John Bonham) Drowned in a surfing accident? (oh yeah... Dennis Wilson) Well, anyway, I'm glad you are doing well. Did you ever think about giving up drummin'?....It seems kind of dangerous.

You gotta help me! The Girl Scouts have me targeted as an easy mark and are selling me Thin Mints by the case load. Now I've got cookies all over the place ... You want to buy some cookies?
ED NOTE: I'm not a big thin mints fan, now if we were talkin' Samoas, then I could really help! 

Kelly, Thanks for the wonderful tribute to my Dad. He is certainly missed by us all.
-Bob Hasse

Many thanks for mentioning our father's passing in the McCarty Metro. We are all struggling with the loss of our Dad, since it seemed like he would go on forever and his passing has left a big void in our lives. Like Bob McCarty, he placed a big emphasis on Family and keeping the family together. Yet, Bunny and Bob didn't ask for much for themselves. They just wanted happiness for their children and grandchildren. Men like them deserve to be included in our "Greatest Generation." Thanks, again.
-John Hasse
ED NOTE: Bob & John, you are very welcome.
