Remember 'The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon'? Well, it occured to me while back while talking to a friend of mine, just how many people in music (and even into theatre, movies and tv) you can connect to Maury Lafoy.

Maury is the amazingly talented bass player for Toronto indie pop/rock band The Supers with his equally talented highschool pal Graham Powell (who is Mr. Uber-photo and Computer Guy as well) and also a member of Ottawa based rock band Starling. He's toured extensively with the likes of Jann Arden, Sarah Harmer and Ron Sexsmith and is a highly sought after studio musician. He's a wonderful guy with an...unusual sense of humour (*g*) and I consider myself honoured to know him.

So, this group is to talk about him behind his back. ;-) You can discuss him, his myriad of projects or anyone that you can connect to him whilst playing "the game". Six Degrees of Maury Lafoy! :)


He's on an absolutely insane amount of cds. To the best of my knowledge, this is a pretty complete list thus far (you don't want to ask about how many of these I own. *g*)
