I moved back to Rochester In the mid seventies. Peggi and I had been going to school in Indiana and I was playing in a working country band there, real country, like Merle Haggard, George Jones, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. Country rock was getting big here at the time, a whole other animal. Bands like Old Salt were popular. I wasn’t buying it. I placed an ad on the bulletin board at Record Archive, then located next door to Village Green Bookstore on Monroe Avenue. I was looking for something different and I found it. Kevin and Gary called and we started a band. I lasted a few years and left after we released the first single, “Die Trying.” Howard Thompson produced it at PCI Studio.
