That is pretty cool.  What were the circumstances around you getting backstage to speak with Carl?

I was a junior in high school. I presented myself to the promoter as a reporter/photographer for my school newspaper. That was a slight exaggeration. But I did get into the hall before the guys arrived. When the guys arrived at the boys club, Dennis looked incredibly cool in a striped tee shirt, but he wouldn’t let me take a picture until he got cleaned up. Carl spoke to the promoter about the show not being sold out and suggested the tickets might have been lower priced.  Carl was totally sweet and charming.  He was curious about my girlfriends little tape recorder.  He asked “American.” Nope, Japanese.  Bruce was an AH, answering ever question with “We’ll know when we get home and see Brian.” I asked Al if they had the cool white suits I saw them wear the year before in Buffalo.  He said yes, but did not engage. I was impressed when we heard the NYC horn players practicing “Wouldn’t it be Nice.” My girlfriend was totally shocked when one of the Pickle Brothers called someone a “ c*ck sucker.” Audible gasp. LOL Just before they went on stage, they posed for a group photo (in Ian’s book) as they sang “Chattanooga Choo Choo.” Al sarcastically asked if that was my “official camera?” a Kodak instamatic I used while my Minolta was in the repair shop. Bruce was concerned that the flash would make a glare from one of his fillings. BB humor. Great memories.

Another story of Bruce running scalding and frigid with fans. Has anyone in the band ever talked about Bruce's bipolar tendencies?

Ah, how soon Al forgot that while his family lived in Rochester, NY for a few years while he was growing up, his father worked for Kodak in addition to teaching at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Would love to have heard Carl with The Band or Little Feat. Great thread. Carl had great taste in music.

I recall Carl saying that one of his favorite new artists was Warren Zevon, this must’ve been in 1976 after Carl had sung on Desperados Under the Eaves.  Carl and Billy Hinsche apparently didn’t know whose session they were coming in to the studio to do vocals on, they thought it was a Jackson Browne session and wondered who this weird guy was who was running around the studio.  It was Mr. Warren Zevon!!!

Was Zevon already buddies with David Marks at that point? Maybe that's how he got on Carl's radar.

I think David Marks had already roomed with Warren prior to Carl doing that session, but it doesn’t seem that Carl connected with Zevon because of David. I just think Carl and Billy thought they were going to a Jackson Browne session.
