Apple Pie And Ice Cream Do You Treat Your Mama Mean?

Jackie Lomax died. Does Tricia Olson know? She played me his music in her green stucco Furby street apartment sometime before the 70s ended. I had all the Beatles solo records and knew some of their offshoot pals like Harry Nilsson, Badfinger even Klaus Voormann but I never heard of Jackie Lomax – and he was on Apple and George Harrison produced his soulman debutĀ  “Is This What You Want?”

Over the years I heard he became a Los Angeles musician and I don’t think his life was so easy. I had the fantasy that if I was a little more successful and rich, I would seek him out and if by luck I persuaded him to trust my arrangements and enthusiasm I would offer to produce an album and bring him to Toronto.
