Quite chilly out. Broke ice on the chicken's water bowl. Got four eggs! Must be Bea-52 and Bea-53, because the sucker's are big.
Speaking of egg layers, here's a shot of the Exits in full bloom:
Left to right: the late and great Wendell Havatone, Terry Mitchell, Charlie Waters, BBB and Wayne Rutschman.
The scene is the Girl's Gym at Mohave County Union High School. New Year's Eve 1964-65. Rick Ridenour made me the drum riser in shop class. Modeled after the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, of course. I had to buy the wood ($40). It took an extra pickup to haul it to the gigs. In fact we took it to the State Fair, the month before, but it wouldn't fit in the building. Ha. No joke.
Speaking of my ego:
BBB: Are you selling The Exits postcard as a poster? I want one. Its priceless. Why does it make me wanna watch 'Spinal Tap'? I was a Pistol Pete fan also. Always remember his gray socks he played in and his no look passes, which he did well before Magic Johnson made famous. You are right, his story is very sad. When he graduated from college, everyone thought the Boston celtics would draft him, but Red Aeruback (spelling is wrong ) just did not like him, didnt feel he would fit in. Just think if he had become a Celtic and played in all those championship teams they had then, would his life had been different? It was so warm yesterday, Al Gore won another Nobel prize. Tom Brady-out!"
Yes, we are considering a poster of the Exits invite. Dan The Man is designing one even as you read this.
