“He was always a good samaritan,” Jon Hendricks said of Dave Lambert. “If anyone was in trouble on the road, he’d always stop and help.”
That’s what Dave was doing on an October night in 1966. He was on his way back to New York from Cape Cod, where he had played a solo gig. On the Connecticut Turnpike, near Westport, he saw a motorist struggling by the side of the road with a flat tire. Dave stopped.
