We were really dedicated and we were going into Ronnie’s Garage most nights and working this stuff out. And I had just purchased this keyboard, this synthesiser, a Nord Lead Two, and it was a thousand bucks.
And that was a lot of money for me. And it was a very big purchase and I figured I better learn how to use this thing and apply it to this band that I was in.“…Everybody was so capable of their instruments and everybody had their parts and it came down to the end of the song and I felt like I wanted to have something that was really identifiable that I could play.
