Second that Mr Peter Gabriel.

Dave Porter was a complete douchebag who stole a wireless mic and some PA cabinets from his dead friend Bill Geen, and then lied about it to his family. Rot in hell Dave you big Gabriel phoney.

Does anyone remember a band named CRAC that was popular in the late 70's in CNY?? Anyone know what became of any of its members or what they are doing now? They had a hit song titled "Of The Lights" that got alot of airplay on FM radio in the late 70's. I beleive their frontman was a guy named Larry Arlotta.

IIRC(?), "Of The Lights" was written by Rick Cua, who was also a member of the band. The flip side of the single was a cover of the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby."

Crac used to perform in a Skaneateles tavern called "Under The Stone" and I believe they were once called "Crack The Sky" before shortening it to Crac. Joe Whiting used to play there a lot also.
And yes, thery were a very good band.
805.....former members Ron Cunningham and Greg Creemo Liss are still in CNY I believe. Ron does a solo gig these days. I only saw 805 a couple times but were a VERY good band IMO

I was also at the Marillion show at MV. AWESOME! That was about a year after Gabriel was in Utica. That was one of the best shows ever!!!
