    I lived in Naples for a year and a half - 1990-91ish. Royal Harbor. Then moved to Ft. Myers off Summelin, then bought a house in Lehigh Acres. Good times! :emoji_footprints:

    I lived out in the Estates - east of 951- where they allow those who work :emoji_bear::emoji_tiger2: for a living and have less than several million to live. Hard times

    Nothing wrong with that....I knew a bunch of people who lived there and they were good folk. I had a little apartment in Royal Harbor and worked in Port Royal as a full time groundskeeper for a millionaire at his winter home and guest house next door. My neighbor was Kevin Keyes who owned Keystone Pavers - he was from Boston and had both the accent and the work ethic. We all put our pants on one leg at a time. I still do... :emoji_jeans:

    In December I would moonlight for UPS delivering packages along Bayshore Dr. Met a lot of those billionaires on the gulf. Those guys tipped nicely (bottles of liquor, $50 bills) when I got to deal with them and not their help. Charles Colson came to the door one day. May I also compliment you on your groundskeeping skills. Whatever house it was, you did good because they are all beautiful and immaculate.

    Thanks......that sounds like a very cool gig!

    Regarding the landscaping...all those Royal Palms really set the tone!
    My employer was a pretty decent guy but when it came to business he was very serious. Not a bad component ...I learned a few things from him before moving on.

    1989. Western high. Broward county kid.

    Haven't been down there since about 95. Would probably get lost.

    And y'all are old as hell.

    You owe it to the present owners to stop by and let them know all this unique info. (use discretion of course--never know who/what may be in there:eek:)

    In all serious, this isn't a deal where "a musician once lived"---this is extremely unique. You're talking about a whole all-star lineup of more than musicians. You're talking about big league, iconic, virtual legends of the music scene all playing in there. A mere "home" is rarely in that kind of discussion. Normally, if a story is told about various artists/musicians all being together playing--the places your hear are....The Fillmore East, The Cow Palace, Budokan, etc...NOT a neighborhood home!

    I know if I owned that house, and didn't know the history about it--I would be most appreciative if some stranger just happened to drop by and gave me the entire, behind the scenes stories of what went on years before....in the very place where I live.o_O This is a better story than Rolling Stone could dig up.

    I have thought about doing that and probably will one of these days before we leave Gainesville. For the curious, click the Google Maps link and it will take you to the street view of the house and a peek at the garage, though I couldn't line up a good shot of both. The house is the light tan one on the right behind the white picket fence, but the garage to the left of the house is mostly hidden behind the brown privacy fence.
