1972…July. ”Nev­er a Dull Moment”. Rod Stewart.

I left “Cop­per­head” to fly back to Eng­land and record on Rod Stew­art’s “Nev­er a Dull Moment”, play­ing piano on “Ital­ian Girls”, and bass on “I’d Rather Go Blind”.

I could only stay a cou­ple of weeks (hence not being able to stay for the inside cov­er pho­to shoot) because I had to fly back to the States to take pos­ses­sion of a house Nicky Hop­kins was rent­ing for me on Mel­rose Ave in Mill Val­ley. He had asked me to join a band he was get­ting togeth­er after he got back from the Rolling Stones tour. He end­ed up decid­ing not to form the band after he had a hard time on the road with the Stones.

I then formed a band with Greg Erri­co and Neil Schon called “Sears, Schon, Errico”…we played sev­er­al gigs instru­men­tal­ly includ­ing Fres­no, and the “Dia­mond Head Crater Fes­ti­val” in Hawaii.

I also did a lot of ses­sion work for Cap­i­tal Records and A&M Records in Los Ange­les around this time…mostly coun­try and rock.
I worked with Tim Rose, Alex Har­vey, Kim Fow­ley’s “I’m Bad” album, and on an Ultra Vio­let (Andy Warhol crowd) album in LA where Sal­vador Dali showed up one day. That was a trip.
