Even Woodstock turned out to be a disaster. Everybody was stuck in the mud and people got sick.
But I always loved songs with great lyrics.
The first time I went to New York, I met Alan Freed.
Guys like Otis Blackwell and Bobby Darin, and all the guys who were writing songs for Elvis at the time, just hanging around, writing songs, talking about music.
In early '57, I bought a Fender Telecaster.
About two months into the Whisky, I borrowed some money and rented a remote recording truck.
I've got a Fender Concert amp from the '60s, the one Joe Osborn used. He played his bass through it.
I think my favorite album was probably Realization.
One of the first groups we signed was the Fifth Dimension.
I learned some chords and I started watching anybody I could, once I really got into it.
I loved playing and I was actually working two jobs.
I think after 1970 or so, after I sold Soul City, I took off for awhile and didn't do too many gigs.
Jack and I usually get together and sit around in the afternoons and start throwing ideas around.
My first really good guitar was a Gibson J-45.
