Hadn't seen or thought about Brain since the 80's so I looked him up when I heard he passed. Wow, he had some tough times and was totally unrecognizable due to the jaw & throat surgeries, quite sad.
I seem to remember him being nicknamed "Pretty Boy" Bobby Heenan. That would have been back in the very early 70's. I do remember him as the manager of Black Jack Mulligan and Lanza. They used to fight against guys like Dick the Bruiser.
Yes, "Pretty Boy" was another of his nicknames, usually when he was actually wrestling. Probably his biggest tag-team was Nick Bockwinkel and Ray "The Crippler" Stevens. They were the Champions for a long time (1970-1976, w/ Heenan from 1974).

SHIT! Within the last few years I have really started to like his music. As a teenager in the 80's I did not really like it.

Now I really could appreciate his talent. Would have loved to see him live.
One of my favorites during my college years and started out in his hometown of Gainesville, FL. Haven't seen him live in awhile and he always put on a good show. Recently downloaded a hi rez version of his greatest hits that I'll be listening to tonight (though I have all his albums through the early 90's and 3 concert DVDs).

RIP Tom and I trust you will put on a great show for the folks we lost in Vegas.
