Beebe was a friend and drummer in our band Riding Shotgun in the 80s and 90s. I moved to Florida and lost touch with him, but thought of him often. He was agreat guy, honest and reliable. Was a kick butt drummer and could sing anything. Miss you old Buddy, meet you in heaven and we can get another Band together.
