tony platon

   tony platon has been my friend for at almost thirty years. he lives next door to me in pedro. for work, he's a pool man. he plays guitars both electric and acoustic and digs the mandolin. he served as inspiration for the reactionaries' hit "tony gets wasted in pedro" (off the minutemen's "the politics of time" album). he is a true and dear friend and is very essential to watt.
