Yes...I had the great fortune of meeting my "real"
father in 1985. During the filming of La Bamba, they
wanted me to ask my father to sign a release for the
movie. I had never met him or even talked to him ever,
so Joanie and I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona to visit!
He was a wonderful man and after all those years had
passed...their were NO bad feelings and our short but
priceless relationship was something that has changed
my life forever. Thanx for the question......Bob
