I too danced the night away to Cosmo and The Counts. Some of my fondest memories were those years. I am sure he is playing away now.

Tommy was a Louisville institution and icon. He was one of the nicest guys I ever met. He will truly be missed. My prayers are with his family. Rest in peace my friend.

The sound of your laughter, your silly snide remarks will always be with me, remember you always told me, "Be positive because we are just passing through!" I dream of you now saddleing lots of winners, breaking 80 everyday, riding a Harley and of course singing with some of your favorites. Whatever you do don't tell Etta she looks "stately"! Thank you for some of the very best memories of my life and for sharing your family and friends. Until we meet again my sweet.

We were "soul mates", no doubt. As Kenny Chesney's song said, You "had me from hello". More than half a century of a very treasured relationship, from the Sultans, to way beyond our beloved Chosen Chief's racing career, we were always a part of each other's lives. You taught me a lot about life, about love, and about the things that really matter. You will always be with me.

I remember dancing to Cosmo and the Counts when I was a teenager. Cosmo was quite the entertainer! RIP Cosmo!

Magic moments are what Cosmo created for so many of us old rock n' rollers. When I think of him I think only of youthful, happy, fun, carefree days. What a great legacy he left for many of us to enjoy!

I remember you from Crescent Restaurant when my Mom, Ruth, owned it in the 60's. I was 12 or 13 and we had your record on the juke box and that record was worn out when it was removed/replaced. I always got the removed records and I was so upset it was worn, my Mom went and bought me a new one. You always seemed so nice, and I loved your Chimp. I thought you were the coolest guy around, even better than Elvis. RIP, and tell my mom and brother, Ron, I said I love and miss them.

I knew Tommy way back when Cosmo and The Sultans performed on “Hi-Varieties” on WHAS-TV back in the late 1950s. I, too, was a Hi-Varieties' performer, always doing my best to duplicate Gene Krupa's soloes as a serious kid drummer growing up in Louisville. We'd run into each other on occasion after that, and one of the Sultan's “managers,” Skip Love, became one of my best friends at UK. After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, my telephone rings and it's Tommy on the other end wanting to be sure I was “okay.” I was very touched by his thoughtfulness and told him Katrina had spared tiny Natchez, Mississippi, where I now reside. We had a great time talking about music back in the day and horse racing (I was a former Editorial Staff Writer for The Blood-Horse); a wonderful conversation with an old friend. God Bless you Tommy; I'm sure you'll end up as the lead singer in St. Peter's Choir.
