PERSONAL EFFECTS, PERSONAL MEMORIES

Personal Effects super fan Ed Richter shot some great footage from stage side during the Personal Effects set. Great Pics, Ed!

Peggy Fournier

Ok, all right…  I’ll admit it. Like every other damn guy at Scorgies I had a crush on Peggy Fournier. I had seen the Hi-Techs live many times and oh my god there was Peggy.

One of my best friends from the late 1970′s-1980′s was Bob Martin; we were Beatles collectors and then it happened. The Hi-Tech’s changed their name to PERSONAL EFFECTS. I thought I was in. I asked Bob what the deal was with Peggy. he said “forget it, MAN! Our drummer is her man!” OH, LOL!

Paul Dodd

Well anyway, Personal Effects went on to produce the greatest local music of all time. Yes, they were the tightest, they had the best instruments and yes! They were the best.! I guess this makes me a Personal Effects Fan Boy.

I love you Peggy, Paul, Bernie and of course my close friend Bob Martin.

    I probably had that conversation about Peggi about ten times- she had a lot of admirers who were equally disappointed to find that Paul was her husband! Of course those of us who know them well can’t imagine any other scenario…

    My favorite couple in the world. (By just knowing them, I was able to have my best job at a barter company through 4D Advertising; and also to take chances with my own music, then and now). Peggi is still a doll!!

    …and she’s even more beautiful now.

    its obvious even from this distance that Peggi & Paul are as made for each other as oil & canvas, sky & moon, peas & pod.

    I haven’t seen Bernie in over two decades and he looks like he hasn’t changed a bit. How does he do it???

    Funny, Martin will appreciate this. I recall coming off after a set and my pick hand was bleeding all over. I said to Scott, from Bowerys, who was bartending I think, “Got any bandaids?” and he said, “Ah, no. Did you ask Mama Peggi?”
