This sad news was announced last night.
From the NRBQ headquarters:
We regret to inform you that Tom Ardolino passed away today. Tom will
be missed but his spirit lives on through those who were touched by him.
Jan. 12th 1955-Jan. 6th 2012
So sad and unexpected.
NRBQ was the reason Hubby and I met, 15 years ago.
Rest in peace, Tommy.
