It all started with these songs…
….so my friend and vocalist / lyricist Tim Raynor-Allwein and I decided that we needed to form our own band after several years playing in a cover group. This was back in June of 1978 and I was at the ripe old age of 19! The funny thing was that we had absolutely no idea what we were doing.
But we did have what amounted to a “mission statement” long before there was such a thing. And simply it was this:
To write, perform, record and form a band EXACTLY the`way we wanted. No compromises, no excuses and most importantly, no BS!. For better or worse Tim and I would do it our way or no way regardless of consequences..
That sounds really simple but nothing could be further from the truth. Anybody who has ever been in a rock band will tell you that everybody ( and I mean EVERYBODY!) has their opinion and wants you to do things their way.. .music attorneys, managers, sound techs, other musicians, club owners, wives, girlfriends, absolute strangers…well you get the idea. Refer to the movie ‘Spinal Tap” if you have any doubt.
So for better or worse here is what we came up with, at least we did it our way …you be the judge!
