Looking For Tim Weisberg

After yesterday's post on Dan Fogelberg and watching the video I posted, I began thinking about Tim Weisberg. He is/was an amazing flute player. I googled him and found near nothing. No wikipedia page. No website. It seems he has fallen off the planet.

Anybody out there know what's going on with Tim Weisberg? Where is he? Is he still playing?

I was crazy about his music. Somewhere I still have a vinyl copy of Listen to the City. Brilliant album. And it doesn't even seem to be available on CD. I shot him at least once. I uncovered a contact sheet and sleeve of negs. Some of the negatives appear to have some water damage...this is the sleeve...

I shot these photos of him at the Troubadour...


I must have known him pretty well because I have his phone number in an old address book of mine that surfaced while I was doing my book. I would love to find out what he's up to these days.

Anyway, there were some other negs in the Tim Weisberg sleeve (but not on the contact sheet) that surprised me. Maybe I'll post a couple of them over the weekend.

He's apparently still playing in Cal. I found this blog about him:

Hope the link works...

Thanks, Steve. I didn't see that one. Went and left a message. We'll see if Chuck gets in touch.

I have created a Wikipedia page of Tim Weisberg. He also has a MySpace page. Links on the Wiki.

I've been thinking about his music lately. I saw him at the Troubador and in Santa Barbara.

Wow, there are a few more comments here since I bookmarked this page a while back...

I have been friends with Chuck Alvarez for years and he's back playing with Weisberg again... Saw them at Alva's in San Pedro last year (great show!!) and they were there again tonight (10-1-2010).
Tim now has his own website (finally!!) but it is still under construction... http://www.timweisberg.com/ (or you can try getting ahold of Chuck at chuck@chuckalvarez.com)
He is a really nice guy and I know that he would love to see your photos!! I have one of some friends playing in front of The Troub, with him on the marquee in the background, and he wanted to see a copy of THAT!!

Ah, those were the days... ;-)
