Gary Young -keyboards, vocals
Skip - drums, vocals...
a duo, backing a Broadway show-style singer...
We played a hotel gig near Disneyland for several months.
My new daughter, Lissa was 1-2 years old.
This lasted until August - 1977...
And I was there the day I heard that Elvis died.
Our little family then moved to Richmond, VA to make a new start-but had problems and split up.
I was alone, again and got tired of trying to make it as a typesetter in a local print shop.
Jamming with a local band left much to be desired.
1978-I saw an advert in a newspaper for a touring lounge band needing a bass player/singer.
It just so happened it was within walking distance, and I was without a vehicle.
The total of my equipment was a Fender fretless bass and a small bassman amp.
I carried them a mile down the road, did an audition and got the job.
When I left my apartment , I left behind all my recordings and any photos of the days before this.
