In Memoriam of Ray Townley — 2 Comments

  1. From an old friend and former staff member of Alice’s Revisited and fellow resident of the house we all shared on Burling Street in Chicago, Good-Bye. Nancy Fox

  2. I would love to hear from you (Nancy) or others – who could tell me a little about Ray’s life. I knew him only briefly circa 1971 – Alice’s Revisited – I came from Madison, Wisconsin to Chicago monthly – to hear Otis Rush perform at Alice’s – once at least Ray let me stay at his “pad”. He was very, very nice to me – in the period a year before I turned 21 and could go to Blues Bars on Chicago’s West and South Sides. Quite a few years ago I tried unsuccessfully to find out information about Ray – but I couldn’t get any further information from Downbeat Magazine – which he’d written for – a little after the early 70’s (nor could I fine any other leads to try to find him). I can be reached – at: my last name, followed by the first 3 letters of my first name at gmail. Thanks! George Marx, Chicago
