Kerom"Kim" Capli was my half brother Long story here. Kerim and me had a band in Rochester New York in the mid sixties. I will try to enclose a photo taken in 1964. He lived with my family. His father was 'Piano Pasha" and his mother a famous opre singer in Turkey. ( Izmer was his home town ) We both moved to L.A. and went in different circles. He went with the Monkees and I went with them on a few of the tour dates in the summer of 67. As I was doing some session work in L.A. I had met "Fast" Eddie Hoe and did a demo session with him at Goldstar at one point.His nickname was 'Fast Eddie Hoe ' Everybody knew him. Kerim was a different story. He was the most multi talented musician imaginable. Drums were no more his primary instrument than guitar.bass or vocals and a close second on piano. He joined the Sundowners and got the Monkees gig. He called me when they went on tour and invited to go along for the ride. I could only handle it three days. This was right after Hendrix left the tour and no one knew who Jimi was. Kerim told me "You have got to hear this guy,Jimi. He is where music is going " Kerim died about five years ago in Turkey. You can Google his name and see a video shot in Turkey in the mid eighties. He is singing"Give Me Lovin" the Spencer Davis tune. However,he also had the Kim Capli Blues Band. Check out "AWESOME JOHN" who was a friend of Kerims. He is stranded in Turkey. It's amazing how many great session players from the sixties L.A. scene have fallen on bad times.
