I am so happy to see that you know who Robin is. She still looks te same, just a tad older. Her website you can go to and listen to her new songs. Wishin on Telestar is my favorite. Also, I didn't realize that Robin's dad was the pianist of Dean Martin. She's alot of fun to hang out with though. She still plays with Asa and the rest of the Chartbusters. Asa got Robin's band going. I saw at the end of this read that Asa went over to Europe and played for fans like, MICK JAGGER.
Back in Boston in 1974 Asa started the Mezz, a stripped down rock 'n roll band. They convinced the owner of a Kenmore Square bar called the Rathskeller to let them play. Thus began the "Years of the Rat", the dingy club that became a center for what was later dubbed punk rock. During the reign of the Mezz (and its two spinoffs - Nervous Eaters and the Chartbusters) the Rat would become the birthplace of the Cars, Human Sexual Response and lots of other Boston favorites, as well as a pit stop for the Ramones, Talking Heads, the Police, and countless others on the same narrow road. But by the time Punk Rock became an international cause celebre in 1976, Asa was already off to his next adventure. He had a day job running a Cambridge health food store frequented by Jonathan Richman. When Richman's first Modern Lovers album - recorded a few years earlier - was finally released in '76, Jonathan found himself in demand. He convinced Asa to join the hastily reformed Modern Lovers, just in time for their first tour or Europe. A few days after his last Rat gig, Asa was playing in European concert halls to fans from Sid Vicious to Mick Jagger.
Robin Lane's website if your interested. I think I will ask Robin to go to a Stones show with me. Also tell her not to forget to take Asa. lol
