3. Hi Rick. I was at Bouchercon in Toronto this past weekend and want to say how much I enjoyed the Saturday evening entertainment by your band. I was one of the people who was up dancing. I come from a musical family and will now look out for your musical mysteries. Best wishes.

6. Had the privilege of playing with The Orchids in the late 80's. Don, Ray, Art, Vic, and occasionally Jack and Jim. Also, Clark when Art was unavailable. Many good memories. Would love to hear about the remaining guys.

8. I taught at Bloordale M.S. in the 60's and occasionally in the 70's. I didn't know you were such an accomplished writer, cook, etc.etc. as well as a terrific musician. Susan Sakamoto (former Bloordale student) is librarian at Silverthorn CI and will be ordering your books. What a fascinating life you have had!

9. Hi Rick. hope all is well. I just want to correct a post by Brian Doyle. My dad always spelled his name Linc. I talked to my mom and she said that his older brother was my dads friend for about 4 years. She hasnt seen him for over 50 years. so much for being a lifelong friend. She never danced with him either. he was too young to get into the clubs. the lengths that some people will go to to be in the picture astound me. Peace, Scott Chamberland

13. Hey Rick, I'm a friend of Marilyn Cornwell--met you at her Canada Day party where you gave me advice on book signings at Chapters. I had read in the Etobicoke Guardian that you would be at Chapters last Saturday, so made a special trip there to see you--but instead there was a women selling Remembrance Day books. Maybe you can let me know when your next book signing will be. Congratulations on your new book! I'm so incredibly impressed with how prolific you are.

14. I have been looking for this forever, life long friend of LINK not Linc. We gave him the name approx. 1955 ish. We grew up together with Link, went to school with him, raced cars with him, played baseball etc etc. Danced the night away with Maureen at the Country Inn? after Marmaroneck.

21. Interesting page on Linc Chamberland. I took lessons from Linc from 1982-1984 and last visited him in Westchester Co. Hospital just before he passed on. "forget everything you think you know" was one of his first things before he opened my world of music of jazz and improv. He truely was living his dream between music and fishing. His garage was like walking into a fishing store. I know what I know now from that year and a half I spent with Linc.

22. Rick, I had no idea. I was browsing the Mysteriously Yours Mystery Dinner Theatre web site and noticed a comment posted by "Rick Blechta" and thought..."I know that name." And here you are; and here I am. Fascinating to read about your accomplishments. Not at all like I remembered you as a "Hog Town Bomber". Hope all is well. - Tom Melissis...aka former "Rabbid Rabbit" Pitcher with 'tude.

24. Got here accidently via your food blogspot and now I'll have to investigate your books as I'm both a passionate foodie (read, like to eat, especially anything new) and love reading mystery and crime, but not anything with psychological suspense.

25. Always glad to hear of more mystery books, will certainly lookyours up.

28. Great site, Rick, and fine-sounding band, as well! I've owned M400 #1485 since about 1976, and too long ago now, the motor burned out. Am happily now looking to either rebuild or replace it, and get my very clean little beauty back in action for my new CD (and others')! (Btw, do you know of a good Mellotron repairman here in L.A.?) And you're right, K.C.#1 may stand as the most astounding Mellotron work ever. McDonald was an absolute genious with it! Cheers!
P.S. Forgive me, but what's the ICQ number??

35. Way back in the early 70`s Devotion played at my high school in Markham.It was so amazing and to this day I talk about this show.You guys did not play dance music and did the best progressive rock of the day.
The coolest thing happened that night.Nobody left the gym.Everyone sat down cross-legged and watched you guys.It turned out to be a concert!!
Would that happen today???
Probably not.
I am in shock that you have a contact site on the web.If I had known about the College Street bar,well front row center would have found me there.
My memory tells me that you did Watcher of the Sky by Genesis and it was amazing.
Thank you for the best memory of a dance turned concert.

42. Rich,

The Linc Chamberlain tribute page is wonderful, a fitting remembrance of a great musician, teacher and person. I knew him very well, though my older brother Joe and our friend Rich Dixon knew him much better (as students and friends). I attended sessions at Rapson's many times, as a minor (my father came alone so I could enter).

Linc will always be remembered.

(Future: I have comments, photos, music in Linc's handwriting and a caricature I drew in 1973 to submit to your site at some point.)

43. Great site, Mr. Blechta. I was meaning to ask 10 years ago, did you publish that book with my name in it? ...

Thank you for shaping my life with music and humour. I'll never forget.

Da WebMaster: Herr Vogler,

Yes, the book was published and was a finalist for best Canadian Crime Novel of the Year in 2006. It's called _Cemetery of the Nameless_ and you can still find it in some bookstores and you can certainly order it at any bookstore or online with Chapters, Amazon, etc.

So what have you been up to in the intervening years? Still play clarinet?

Thanks for getting in touch!

45. Hi Rick, when is your next book coming out? I read "A Case of You," and I'm eagerly waiting for the next one. My Blechta bookshelf has room for more, many more.

46. Just finished A Case of You. Loved it.
Then I heard Brenda Boykin- "Hard Swing Travellin Man". Sounds like a Case of Your next gig @ the Chicken Deli. There's a clip on youtube, can't link.

Da WebMaster: Thanks for getting in touch. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed it. It's always nice to hear that.

Nina Richmond, the Advocats' fabulous vocalist performed the song at the book's launch, and we keep threatening to do it at one of the Deli gigs. I'll keep you informed -- but don't let the lack of it prevent you from coming out to see the band!

Da WebMaster: Do I ever! That was a very interesting summer. What was Bruno's last name. I also remember taking rolls of photos using the big telephoto lenses and shooting the length of the store, then sending them out for development under false names.

How the heck are you?


49. Just discovered your amazing books - have devoured three in the last week and thoroughly enjoyed every word. As an avid mystery reader, I find it astounding that Canadian writers take a back seat to some American "big names" that only have to turn out stories and they go to the best-seller lists be they great novels or pure garbage.
Four cheers for you, Lynwood Barclay, Jim Nichol, and Peter Robinson! It's time you all receive the recognition you deserve.
