Having first heard The Monks on WFMU in the mid 80's, I became an instant fan. So, what a treat it was for me to learn of their appearance at Cavestomp in '99. I made both shows and had the opportunity to meet Dave, Gary & Larry. Unbeknownst to me, my girlfriend Michelle, kept in touch with Dave as to inquire about vintage videos of The Monks past performances for sale. On my birthday, I received Dave's very own personal copy of The Monks appearing on German television from the mid '60's. Dave told Michelle that he was unable to get a copy made in time for my birthday, so he sent his own! When we first met Dave, I expressed my exhilaration in seeing the band and meeting some of the members. I believe that Dave felt just as exhilarated playing for and meeting his fans. I will always remember his gift of kindness.

-Thank You Dave
