    Huell had more than one show. I was only out here a few months when as chance would have it Huell ended up sitting next to me in a cafe. A few people mentioned a celebrity was around. Somebody I became good friends with came up to me and said "I love that guy!" as if star struck. This guy was a New Yorker who had met lots of celebrities on both coasts, but Huell, he had this karisma.

    I have a spoof of his style that's been in the works since I first started watching him. I saw him on tv my first week out here, but it never clicked until he sat next to me in the cafe.

    He ended up doing a show on the local art walk. cool guy

    I was a long time Californian. Better than 30 years.

    Huell was a state icon.

    He was always "amazed." I loved his shows.

    Huell was not only "Spectacular," but he surely rates as one of California's "Golden Treasures." He will be sorely missed.
