    Sal was a great friend … always ready with a joke or a story. More than once his fun-loving nature made my band’s night more memorable. And, as Elliot mentioned Rockin’ Santa was a legend on its own. There we saw Sal was not only an excellent guitarist, but had an amazing musical sense of humor. We’ll miss him.
