Me and Doc noted that on the first page. I had this mental image of Beaneater gum shoeing around Boston, checking sources for this missing Clash fan.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Last I remember he had migrated south to Brockton. He'd be tough to find since I have no idea what his real name is or what he looks like.

He shares the name with a serial killer. That's all I know. Plus he did some drinking with Flex and Boddington one night. And he loves Captain Jetes with all his heart.

He's from America. That narrows it down to about 45,000 people.

I don't wanna know. The man seemed to crave a degree privacy so I'll try to give it to him.

Definitely. The only thing that nags is the lack of knowledge that he's doing okay, that the decision to leave here was out of something better for him.

Flex and Boddington went drinking with him a few years back.

I thought someone reached out to him awhile back. Maybe Flex?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

They're calling their agents and going to directly to voice mail.
