I LEFT THE DICTATORS IN MARCH OF 1978. I WAS IN AND OUT OF A COUPLE OF CLUB BANDS. JJ APPROACHED ME IN MAY OF 1978, HE STATED THAT IT WAS GOING TO BE A BUSY SUMMER FOR TS AND THEY NEEDED ANOTHER CREW MEMBER. I TOOK THE POSITION AS A CREW MEMBER WITH AN UNDERSTANDING THAT IF I WAS OFFERED A GOOD PLAYING POSSIBILITY I WOULD TAKE IT. LITTLE DID ANYONE KNOW THAT BY NOVEMBER I WOULD BE THE BASS PLAYER IN TS. I OFTEN PLAYED A FEW SONGS WITH TS WHILE I WAS ON THE CREW. AT NO TIME WAS I THE TEMPORARY BASS PLAYER. LIKE I STATED I WAS OFFERED PERMANENT RANK IN NOVEMBER OF 1978 AND HAVE HELD THAT RANK SINCE.
