Q - Do you remember the gig when Steve Gaines first jammed (can you elaborate) and what Amp did you guys plug him into?
Joe: That was in Kansas City. The place had a two story truck ramp to get to stage level. We used to stay at the hotel right across the street until we got kicked out. Someone brought a big deli tray back from the gig. A hotel room ended up getting painted/plastered with the contents of the deli tray.
I'm pretty sure we plugged him into a Mace with a 4x12 cabinet.
I just checked a list of shows and it has May 11, 1976 for that show and then a break starting after June 6. I remember the break where they worked with Steve to teach him the songs but I had forgotten how quickly they acted when they found him.

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.
