Rodney, his son Andrew, and wife Jackie

We called him Hot Rod.

He was the youngest.  A great ballplayer, bass player,  husband, father and brother, and so much more. We lost him in January, and his 56th birthday would have been October 1. 

We miss him like crazy.

I've written a tribute to Rod, which will be on the new album, "Temptation Row".

Have a listen to "Hot Rod"
