In 11th grade my lunch period was at an odd hour – late in the day. Luckily I had two friends, Tom O'Neil and Michael Haverty, with the same messed up schedule. Everyday we'd go to Cono's for pizza so thin you could see through it. Then one night, after a party, Michael attempted to cross the Southern State Parkway. From then on it was just Tom and I at Cono's.
To honor Michael, a scholarship fund and dance was organized by our teacher, Mr. Rice, at Mepham high school. The dance was held in the gymnasium and The Intellectuals provided the music. This was after Kevin left the band and Joe was singing...although the footage I have here is a couple of Beatles tunes – "I Wanna Hold You Your Hand" and "Please, Please Me" – with Billy Kelly singing.
