A wonderful guy who will be greatly missed! We saw him early in the year at a Bowzer Doo Wopp concert at the Mohegan Sun! Here's my Herb Reed story...
...We moved to Westboro, Mass. in September of '73. Our townhouse apartment (We loved it!) was in a complex called Windsor Ridge, located off Route 9 between Framingham & Worcester. The second day we were there, I saw a huge recreational-type vehicle parked in front of an apartment. There, on the side of the vehicle, were huge letters -- Herb Reed & The Platters! Sure enough, Herb & his family lived in Windsor Ridge, and used the vehicle to travel to The Platters' performing venues. I met him a number of times over the five years we lived in Westboro, and he & his family couldn't be nicer!
Rest In Peace, Herb! You and your group made beautiful music together!
