Good Rats: Taking it To Parsippany

When I was 17 in 1978, sneaking into Dizzy Duncan's in Parsippany to see The Good Rats play was the highlight of the week. And if you caught a rubber rat that night? Hog heaven.

Tonight the Rats returned to Parsippany after a long absence. Not surprisingly, lots of old fans turned out and called out their favorite Rat tune requests. But one gal in the audience looked up at the lineup, which included Stephen Marchello on bass, and remarked, "That isn't the Good Rats!"

"Hey lady," Peppi Marchello responded from the stage. "For 40 years, I have always been The Good Rats."
