Rich Bartle is a famous World Champion Disc player. He is the owner and founder at Mobile Stage Rentals-Los Angeles! In his youth he did a World Tour and appeared on the NBC Today show with a friend of mine, Roger Meier. Roger migrated one summer from New York City to Venice Beach, California in 1978.
Rich has gone on to promotional fame and I have been enamored by his cool stage trucks and his involvement with Big Bands.
It turns out that one of my Best Friends since High School got to meet Rich in the coolest of ways. Bill Scott drums for many bands but one of his most famous Bands is Unknown Hinson. One year Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie hired Bill and Unknown to fly out to Los Angles. Roger, I didn’t forget about you! They were hired to play for Billy Bob’s birthday party. I brag about this event to my friends all the time. But little did I know I also knew the man that built the hidden stages at The movie stars house! I found this out years later as Rich is moving on to Santa Barbara!
I am blown away by this stuff!
