So, you met the Butcher? Always seemed like a fine fellow to me.
I met him when the Conspiracy played an acoustic set at Reckless Records
in San Francisco. Asked him to sign my copy of "Hamburg" (that I'd
just bought) while mentioning that I'd had lots of trouble finding that
album. He wrote "Stewart -- this is a bootleg" on it, then grinned as
I read it and said with pride, "we spent three days mixing this to make
it sound like a boot." I joked with Felix about being mistaken for
a more famous bass player, and he obligingly signed the album "David J".
Fine bunch o' guys, too bad they didn't stay together longer.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing Butch again, it's been a few
years since last time.
