I've been swapping a couple emails with my old college buddy, John. He introduced me to Gary Myrick back in 1986. I just saw on a myspace post that Gary Myrick might be playing in Frisco, Tx this month. I would kill to see this show. I never saw him back in his 80's heyday, but I did see him in the mid 90's in Dallas where he was doing more of a singer/songwriter thing.
He's best known for his song "She Talks in Stereo" which was on the Valley Girl Soundtrack. He later grew into this cool TX rocker, although he chose to live in CA.
Check out this old school vid I found on youtube from back in the day.
