R.I.P. Tom Spanic


Sad to hear about the passing of our old friend Tom Spanic. Our sympathy goes out to Ian and all of his family.

This music video was done by us (as Purple Onion) in 1991. Budget: $5,000. Chris Barry drove down from Minneapolis to be the DP. The lovely and talented Lori Minetti (whom you may know as the hostess of the WI Lottery Money Game) and her sister Lisa provide support. Shot in Chicago and Milwaukee.

And here is another deep cut… a video our friend Frank Anderson did for the Spanics a few years later.
