That first band that was a real band. It's amazing what you could accomplish in Toronto playing covers back in the late 70s. I didn't even have a real bass amp when I joined them in May of 1976, but by the time I left in July of 1978 we owned a huge pa, a lighting system with Genie towers, a 22' box truck with a sleeper, a van, and we employed 3 full time crew dudes. These were the 4 sets a night, 6 nights a week days, where you'd play the club for a whole week. Talk about stories. This was probably as close as I ever got to the decadent days of R&R you read about in Aerosmith memoirs. It was a hard decision to make, but our original material wasn't going well so I chose to move on. With Larry Goddard- lead vocals, Ed Rabold- drums, Martin Deemar- keys, Jon Androvics- guitar, and Mark Baniuk at the board. Grizzly, Beav, Columbo, Cactus and Hari Nyman carried the load.
