La Sierra, Riverside, CA, U.S.A.
We were in La Sierra High School together in 1971, & met again at a garage party where the guitar player in the band was also doing the vocals, but not very well.
I found out that Dean knew the guys, so I offered to do the vocals, & they accepted, which makes him responsible for my first live performance like that.
I had some wild moves, so the garage was packed tight when the cops came busting through the crowd at 10PM. We were just finishing the instrumental of The Doors' Light My Fire, so when I sang,"The time to hesitate is through...", one of the cops yelled,"Yeah, & so are you, Buddy! Shut that crap off!"
