I answered an ad
in the local
paper for a bass player/singer,
Cheese is the word...
L-R Darlene, John, Bill, Skip
We were "On the road"
We played Holiday Inns, and Ramada Inns,
and we lived in the rooms they gave us.
Fortunately, I always got my own room.
It was the Disco era, and we played a variety of music
from Disco to Country...
We were always booked up North in the Winter, down South in the Summer.
But we were glad to be working.
There were some good times over the years, regardless.
When we came off the road,
Bill Reinhart and I rented an apartment in
Lancaster, Pa. for a while, and used it as a
studio, for jams, writing, recording.
I walked a mile to be a janitor
in the Park City Mall by day,
jamming with local musicians, by night.
That is where I was living when John Lennon was shot.
I got homesick, so I scraped up
enough money to get a bus ticket back to California.
