This nickname was given to me by Jeff Butash, when we worked together at Prudential Investments in 1997. I had all but forgotten about it for 22 years.
This spring, I started playing with the Ryan Forrester Band in the DC region, and I decided to bring this nickname back. As this band has some incredibly badass musicians, it feels a lot better to be known as “L Train” than Lane Stowe. I know I’m no Gordon Sumner or Patsy McLenny (Google it), but it’s feels really cool when I’m on a set break, and I overhear someone say “That L Train guy grooves his ass off!”
So unless I’m singing in church or at a funeral, I now go by L Train when I’m performing….and if you call me Lane on a gig, I will not answer.
I’m 50…..deal with it.

Aloha Lane! When I think about Vanguard & the people I met…there are only a handful that I cherish & you my friend are on my list. You are 1 of a kind.. Just a few words to describe how I will always remember you…BADASS Talented. Compassionate. Intelligent. Humorous. Spiritual. Eccentric. Integrity.
I will always be thankful for knowing you. Grateful for you speaking my eulogy I wrote for Bill but was too emotional to read, and singing that BADASS song at his services!
I’m glad to hear that you have cut the chains of social media. I know it’s a part of “their” plan to conquer, divide & control. I’m still on FB…playing into “their” plan. I pray that I have the willpower like you to break free.
I wish you love, peace, & the happiness you so deserve!
Love you my friend! 😘
