    Laffoon, Dennis

    Keyboardist who appeared with a band called Powerglide in the '80s and joined Shooting Star in time to sneak onto 1989's The Best of Shooting Star.  He appears on all of their subsequent albums and wrote some of their material, including "Call It Love" and "We Can't Wait Forever", co-written with Van McLain.  Dennis has also released a couple of solo albums, Nothing Left Unsaid and Always Christmas.  He contributed some keyboard solos to Cruise Control's City Life and does the piano solo on Jeff Scheetz's "Lime Green Leisure Suit Blues" on the album Dig!  A frequent collaborator with Scheetz, he has appeared at at least two of the guitarist's Annual Christmas Concerts, the proceeds from which go to animal shelters, as well as the Akita Adoption and Rescue Foundation, and the H.E.L.P. Humane Society.
