Papa was a Rolling Stone is a one of the Tales from the Tuckerverse stories, giving some backstory into the previously-unseen Eric Stone and how he spent his last days.


Eric Stone is informed by his doctor that he has Mitochondrial myopathy and it has progressed to the point where it may soon kill him. Wanting to better himself before his death, Eric throws his wife Ingrid a lavish birthday party, at which he tries to break off his affair with Dayna Richardson. Dayna however refuses and Eric tries to keep her frozen with his Tempus Watch, all the while knowing it is a temporary solution. Fortunately Eric learns about some early Type-7 that Ashley Tisdale has been working on and collects it the next day, using it on Dayna to freeze her permanently as so she won't ruin his family life. Levy Foster helps Eric hide Dayna, sending her to the Fetishist Wax Museum as a new statue. Eric then informs the Stone Enterprises Board of Trustees about the need to appoint a temporary CEO in his place and Patricia Mero and Amelia Wallace are the top two candidates. Eric sabotages Amelia's presentation by instead freezing her so she'll miss the meeting and asks Levy to make sure the Tempus Watch is buried with him, suspecting that his abuse of the device was why he's dying.



  • The McBride of Foster & McBride is revealed.
  • Type-7 is shown at an earlier stage of development, at that point there being no counter-agent and no time-limit to how long the subject is frozen for.
