Just one final note about how amazing Patrick O HEARN
was. One time during rehearsal at Burbank Studios Pat needed
to go to the bathroom in the middle of a song but it was in
another building, so pat started off not being to here us but
still playing, he walked up two flights of stairs pulled down
his fly went to the bathroom and still made it all the way back
not knowing if we had stopped, and finished the song. I never
knew that he left, thats how tight he was and what a time
We would rehearse at the RECORD PLANT where ROD STEWART would
show up and jam with us and he did some shows as well.
We had a blast on this tour.
