John Stamos text me this photo a few weeks ago. I had sent it to him decades back. I shot this when I was in High School with one of those plastic pocket 35mm film cameras. Probably had it developed at the K-Mart his mom used to go to. John would have auditions in Hollywood, and I would sometimes go along to hang out. On this particular day I remember we did not have enough money to get into Universal Studios. John Stamos and I used to like to watch the stunt show (because we were nerdy that way). At this time there was a huge ivy covered hill in front of Universal Studios (just above one of the parking lots) with a medium size chain link fence on top. Yeah you guessed it. Like most high schoolers we had a great time disrespecting authority.

I love this candid photo from NAMM 2008 of John Stamos and Jeffrey Foskett. For me, for some reason (maybe the Carl Wilson beard) this has a Beach Boys vibe to it. When I see this photo I am reminded of many funny stories about Jeff and John over the decades.
