TRY THIS AT HOME;
#11-New Years Eve, 1993- at THE SPIRIT CLUB-San Diego, Calif.
a fun bash and a good way to bring in 1994. I remember
wearing a cool dark brown/light brown two-tone shirt that night.
And i loved that shirt but don't know what happened to it? We played
a long set and i remember the people really enjoying themselves,
which is very typical of San Diego in that, people go out to have
#12-July 3, 1994-THE WHISKEY
another one of those WILD CHILD shows but this time they
brought Robbie K up to jam with them. Not much to say about this
show except i remember the singer and i sitting in his car listening
to one of his demos, "Pinky Pink Toes" or something close
I went home when the Doors group came on... Couldn't get out of
the Whiskey fast enough...
#13-July 21, 1994-THE STRAND-Redondo Beach, Calif.
about this show is alot of our friends drove down to
see this one. Also, it was the first time i met the Singer's friend,
Dennis Kelley, who brought his very attractive Daughter, Laura,
with him. Until he introduced her as his daughter we thought he
was some kind of pervert! At the time, she was a freshman at UNLV
(Univ. of Nevada Las Vegas). (I recently got a card from her. She
is now engaged to a very nice guy named Sean and just recieved her
MASTERS degree in Molecular Biology.)
#13A-July 23, 1994-San Diego, Ca.-The FLASH CAFE
remember this show, as the Flash Cafe was right next door to Jack
Murphy Stadium, where the San Diego Padres play (it's now called
Park")and the place was packed with the average age being around
21. This was
a nice break from the "oldies" shows we were doing with
while at the SINGER's house, he showed me a pix from this show;
we were rocking
but so was the crowd! This show was sponsored by some San Diego
The next morning, Tom Sweeney took us all to IHOP for pancakes.
huh? Also, I think I mentioned that the STRAND was the only show
played "Feathered Fish" but I was wrong because we played
it here as well. So,
if anyone has a recording of the STRAND show (july 21, 1994) or
this FLASH CAFE
show, they will have the only live versions of Feathered Fish in
we never played it again after this show.
#14-July 24, 1994-THE COACH HOUSE-San Juan Capistrano, Calif.
is the "infamous" show where the "supposed"
out between the Singer and bassist, Henry Lui. le tme say this for
the record, The Singer LOVES Henry. Always has, always will. What
happened onstage was taken out of context and, yes, Henry was pissed
off BIG TIME. But he calmed down days later when he realised exactly
what when on, which was nothing, really. Also, we opened up for
#15-New Year's Eve, 1994-HELL's GATE-Hollywood, Calif.
show featured the Singer, a VERY inebriated MELVIN WHITTINGTON
and myself, all on guitars. To say it was a disaster would be like
calling Madonna promiscuis. This show STUNK. Tom booked it and,
except for one more "Mike Lonn" booking, The Singer would
with the novice, clueless promoters/ bookers we'd come to know over
the last year or so. But this was defintiely Tom's last show working
with the Singer. Tom started with a bang, but when out with a wimper.
Such is the rock and roll lifestyle.
