Jeff fell in love with music and he fell hard. He would have every friend he knew listening to his latest find or taking
them along to the next Dead show or big festival. That was a big part of Jeff that everyone knew and loved and expected.
Towards the end, Jeff developed a special love for Snoop Dog and proclaimed himself with the moniker of "Fizzle".
Like it or not it seems to have stuck. Snoop Dog's #1 Appearance credit on his and other sites is as: Doggy Fizzle Televizzle
(2003) - Host , Variety , Producer.
I did my very best to find a suitable Snoop song for the site, but couldn't seem to find one that wouldn't offend someone
so just imagine your favorite if you don't like the alternative I have chosen from another one of Jeff's well liked groups.
I'm sure many friends out there could tell us stories about Fizzle and how it all came about. I'd love to hear from you
and put some more of Jeff's stories on the site. Email me anything you'd like to share. Address at the bottom of the page.
Quote SNOOP DOG: "Sometimes, if you're lucky, someone comes into your life who'll take up a place in your heart
that no one else can fill, someone who's tighter than a twin, more with you than your own shadow, who gets deeper under your
skin than your own blood and bones" - Talking about Tupac Shakur. Many of us felt that way about Jeff. He just had
a way about him that made him instantly special!
A few other loves of Jeff's musical life were The Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, Blues Traveler, The Doors & Jim
Morrison's American Prayer, Pink Floyd, The Cure, REM, The Black Crowes, The Allman Brothers and Warren Haynes, The Beastie
Boys, Pearl Jam, Van Morrison, Cream and Clapton, The Beatles, Edwin McCain (local to Charleston then), John Mayer, De Collard
Peoples (Folly Beach Band), and White Buffalo (Athens Band...Jeff was crushing hard on the singer Samantha!)...occasionally
he'd feel the love for Led Zepplin, and The Who, but not as much as his set of friends.
Watching music lift Jeff up could literally lift you from whatever mood you were in and you might find yourself dancing
without realizing you started!!!
