I always dug this photo of Adrian (the Turk), sultry Jean and the other cool sharks in the Cue Club. Can anyone identify all these guys. Also, I always thought that from Adrian's speaking voice, he must have had a natural singing voice. Did he ever sing, anyone know?

Adrian was a special, sweet guy. Died way to young. RIP

Colin McMurphy is the 2nd one (Diamond Jim)  and Scott Douglas was the 3rd one (Handsome Danny).  I don't know who the girl is.

I would say the girl is Jean Kimball. I remember Adrian being a cool guy.

Great picture of Jean Kimball - she should have gone into modeling. I think the guy in sunglasses, (kneeling), is the late Gordon Jones, no? Cue Club had some good-looking guys.

The Adrian I remember walked his own way - not to be this or not to be that. But just to be Adrian. He had a quiet, quirky sense of humor that suited his personality perfectly. And he was kind, with a good heart.

Yes, I was the sultry girl. Helen's word, not mine. Now I am just sulky. Next to Scott is James Whitney, and the guy on the bottom right is Ed Konopka. Rip Adrian.

Adrian was a wonderful person, as stated by Jon... Adrian was his own person, I have fond memories, and had some really fun times with Adrian... RIP my friend.

He was my very good friend for over 50 years.   We shared some great times and adventures together.  I miss him a lot.
