A few years of searching and surfing have led me to a few places ~ other than the many, many references and sites for the other Dizz, the jazz great Dizzy Gillespie
(real name John Birks Gillespie).
The most likely, but still unproven, suspect would be John G. Gillespie, who also calls himself "Dizz" or "Dizzy" ~ *snort* how original is that, when one of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time made that nickname famous.
He does a lot of pimping for guitar businesses ~ Dean Guitars EntowNation.com

(a sponsor who "fired" him for some unknown reason
The MySpace of "Dizzy G. Gillespie"www.myspace.com/dizzgillespie
He was, if memory serves me right, not even 20 when he did his rotten thing on our Brian. So that would make him 60-ish right now. Some of the photos of this Dizzy G. do indeed look like a 60-ish man. Nowhere, anywhere, can I find any indication of his age.
He is friended on his MySpace by many, many people. Why then, when I tried on two separate occasions to friend him, did he delete my request? Both times? Hmmm.
It's entirely possible he doesn't want anything to do with me for some other reason ~ especially if he ISN'T Brian's Dizz and has been bothered by other people about it ~ but it does make you think.
Especially because my Eppification is quite obvious on my (very rarely accessed) MySpace: myspace.com/eppylover
