Limousine all the from The Bronx home to Manhattan after a fantastic Italian dinner courtesy of Sal Gallina – R.I.P.
Sal Gallina, sadly I just saw his obit – inventor of the Yamaha WX7 MIDI Wind Controller, rest in peace Sal – Jon Hammond
Update 10/22/07: We are very sorry to report that our friend and inspiration Sal Gallina passed away October 4th, 2007.

Sal Gallina, born Salvatore Angelo Gallina on June 20, 1951, formally of The Bronx, NY, died peacefully after a long illness on October 4, 2007. He resided at 146 Pine Circle, Bennington, VT 05201.

Sal graduated from the New York High School of Music and Art, the Manhattan School of Music, Julliard, and the American College of Forensic Examiners. Sal was an extremely intelligent man who loved music and was known worldwide for his innovative style of music. He was brilliant, both musically and electronically. One of his inventions- the Yamaha WX7 MIDI Wind Controller- is used in the music industry today. It is on display at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. Click here to learn more about wind controllers. He also loved the outdoors, exotic and classic cars, anything electronic such as remote control airplanes and loved to target shoot, especially with pellet guns.

He leaves behind his grieving family – his parents Justo and Marie (Saia) Gallina of Bennington, VT, his brother Angelo Gallina of Bennington, VT, his sister Fran Artale of Wappingers Falls, NY and his niece Dyanna Artale of Wappingers Falls, NY

This is the train track just before the spot in the famous scene from Dirty Harry, 1971; Clint Eastwood jumped from the train trestle on Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Larkspur CA – he was looking West for the jump on top of the school bus. – unfortunately it was torn down in August 2003 after being damaged by a truck two months earlier. – Jon Hammond

*Note: See the bird in my photo, I just noticed it – JH — in Larkspur, CA

Jon Hammond You can actually wee part of Greenbrae Boardwalk there in the photo, and the Egret bird must have come from the adjacent Marsh Conservation Area between there and San Quentin Prison in Greenbrae / Larkspur area. I noticed some of the floating houses on Greenbrae Boardwalk are going for high buck these days! There’s one up for sale there now for $500,000 bucks! Jon Hammond *not sure what the plumbing deal is there, right next to the nature preserve with the floaters –
