Tim I just saw Vanilla Fudge, missed you but I flashed back to my first concert. Wichita Kansas I'm in 9th grade. You guys are playing the Cotillion. Year is around 1967. You play a afternoon show and a night show. I beg my sister to take a friend and myself. I was a bass player even at that youg age. She takes to the 3:00 pm show. I am hooked on Bogart & Appice, bread and butter, ham and eggs, sonny and cher, will you get it. Flash forward. I am in a country band makin a meager living but hey I'm playing 5 to 7 nights a week. Guess whos coming to Wichita. CATCUS opening up for some band called Alice Cooper. Who the **** is that. Who cares we are there for Cactus. Let me swim in your ocean oh yeah.
Now Cactus announces they are looking for a place to play a free concert. Gormelys groove. It worked. Kansas played after you were done. Most people did not stick around. Back then Kansas played mostly Zappa heard that done that.
Tim thanks for the baddest Bass Lines ever layed down. I'm going to put on Near the beginning.
Your fan to the end Bro Bob
