Q - Wasn’t there a bogus Strawberry Alarm Clock going around? Kind of like the bogus Steppenwolf?
Yes, that is how I met the guys in Skynyrd. There was a bogus Strawberry Alarm Clock booked to do this college tour of the South. We found out about and filed an injunction. We were sitting home alone and broke and figured what the hell, we may as well do the tour ourselves. Skynyrd was our opening act.
When Skynyrd opened for us they played mostly cover tunes. They played Zeppelin, Cream and Hendrix. They had two original songs. Ronnie called me one time when I was staying in a hotel in Jacksonville. He told me that they had been rehearsing in a club in town and that he wanted me to come hear his new songs. I had always told him to keep writing. I pulled up a chair right in front of the stage and they went into a new tune called NEED ALL MY FRIENDS. At that moment I realized that I wanted to work with him. Ronnie is the only guy I have ever met that I wanted to work with.
shaw: I wonder if Zap is around.I found a guitar someone was throwing out and it has Zapp on the headstock. Turns out its one of those Law Suit era Les Pauls. I'm putting it back together it was only the body & neck, with no hardware but I got all the parts now.
