William Weiss Interiors Studio - Just four showed up which probably ties a record.

With Kevin sick, Trister AWOL, Brotman eating potatoes and Johnny watching the big Huskie upset, I assume that is where Trister was come to think of it, it was a four man Deadstein jam.  It was intimate, quiet and quite enjoyable.  We played many songs and had a good time.

I had the new pickup for my banjo and mandolin and used it on my banjo for a few songs.  It worked well and I can see using it for a time to come.  Dave was all psyched to do his base thing  (base is to symbol as bass is to ?).  The banjo worked oaky, not great but when I got the song it would click by the second verse.   I used it for the Dark Hollow, Stoned Me and Black Water.

Food was only a quick skip to Micky Dees for Larry and Scott as Dave and I worked on our big hit in D, as well as Mrs. Robinson. 

I wrote out the chart for Love in the Afterneoon and it had its moments.  We did some Ike-a-Tina Clapton song that worked and the Tied to the Pussy Post was fun to fool with.  Second set was a little tough as Scott and Larry pooped out.  It took over the drums for How Sweet It Is and Scott played my guitar and even had a nice lead on it.  The Lucky ol' Sun was attempted a few times but never got off the ground.

Attics and Brokedown both had some nice singing in them.  For you freaks that weren't there, you could imagine what you missed.  Was it much, it was for me and I'm glad it didn't miss it.
