Way back when I was in High School, our Chemistry teacher said he was a drummer with Tommy James & Shondells (before you became famous!). His name was Art Yarzembeck...does that name "ring a bell"?
never realized how much i missed out on ; your work is awesome now as it was then love you keep going strong fan forever
A fun memory from the 60s: At my middle school dance in Lodi, California, a boy in my class named Barry Votaw was on the AV squad and played 'Crimson and Clover' SIX TIMES for us to dance to! His favorite song at the time, of course!
When will you play in the Washington, DC/Maryland/Virginia area? There are a number of venues here.
Dear Brother Tommy - You were the best of best, and remain so. Grew up in 60' and 70'. God our Father blessed your fans with your voice and your love of our Heavenly Father.

Best-est regards and respect my favority artist of all time, you made my day many times listening to your hits on A.M radio. MM
Tommy: Back in 1968 I was a child of a broken family and abusive parents. Crystal Blue Persuasion gave me hope and direction of where I should look. The song inspires me still to this day. Grateful

Hey there. Just saw you at strawberry festival in Plant City. Really Really enjoyed it. Grew up in Morristown NJ and remember your old Drummer Pete there. He was the local celebrity. Any way I know you must enjoy the compliments becuase you deserve it. It was a great time for a day concert. My nephew asked why we were not up screaming. He loved it too. I told him.. "Hey we are old". He did get to go up and gave you a bow when you mingled. He will savor the moment. Made his day. Even my grand daughter who is only 18 enjoyed it. She goes. Oh I know these songs.
Tommy, GREAT show at the Strawberry Festival. You covered ALL our favorite songs. Thank you for being there. Long live rock'n roll!!
My wife & I were at your concert yesterday 2/28/2020 at the FL. Strawberry Festival. Lot's of fun!
