PAUL IS ONE OF THE SMARTEST PEOPLE I HAVE EVER MET. HE HAS A VERY HIGH I.Q., WAS AN ACTOR IN HOLLYWOOD, ONE OF THE 1ST CHIPPENDALES, HAD A BAND OR 2, AND A TOTAL RECALL MEMORY. YES HE HAS HIS OWN IDEAS, BUT DOESN'T EVERY BODY?? PLEASE TAKE TIME TO SAY HELLO AND VISIT HIS STORE.

Greetings from Colorado. Love the book store. We have been there a few times. A wonderful place. And yes, out of all those books, if you have one in mind, he will know if he has it or not, instantly. You don't want to miss the Oasis book store.

Great songs/singing, great quips, stories and terrific pianist! Was able to see him several times through the winter here in Quartzsite. Also, Joanne, his wife, has such a big heart and both are very involved in their adopted hometown of Quartzsite. We are so happy they are amongst us.

When my sister came to town driving her sons Mercedes, we were going down Main Street ( I-10 bypass) when she spotted Paul in his usual attire, which is hardly anything and she almost drive off of the road. I laughed so hard I cried.

Paul Winer (and his wife, Joanne) are such hospitable people and aim to please. He is giving another FREE concert this Friday, June 10, 2011 at the Town Park, one of our bi-monthly Music Fests. He is so excited to do this for the Town and other visitors. Come on out and enjoy the late afternoon, early evening! Bring a picnic, bring your chairs, let's have fun!

Paul, we met years ago in Springfield, MA. You met my husband Andy and he brought you home. You stayed with us a few times when you were playing in the area. Our son Lou was around 10 or 11 at the time, he is now 47, married with two daughters, now 21 and 16. Andy passed away 4 1/2 years ago, we had been married 38 years at the time of his death. Do you remember us? I surely remember you.

He should be arrested. He can play the piano but there should be a moral law in Quartzsite that would allow his obscene way of dressing. He is not cute or funny. He is an exhibitionist. Kids can see him from the street. He gets thrills for shock value of those who go into the book store.

He is too old and too ugly to be doing this! So he was a stripper. He needs to move on! Nobody sane wants to see his wrinkled ass.
