1973. Kathi McDon­ald “Insane Asy­lum”. I co-pro­duced, arranged the music and played bass and keys on this album that was released on Cap­i­tal Records. David Brig­gs was Co-Pro­duc­er, engi­neer and Exec­u­tive pro­duc­er along with his man­ag­er Art Lin­son. We had many won­der­ful play­ers on that album includ­ing Sly Stone, The Point­er Sis­ters, Neil Schon, Nils Lof­grin, Ayns­ley Dun­bar, John Cipol­li­na, Mick Gillett, Jim McPher­son, Boots Hous­ton, and Bob­by Hall.

It was around this time that I first hung out with Jor­ma Kauko­nen who was record­ing “Quah…we went out for a drink after one of his ses­sions. I would lat­er play with “Hot Tuna” and the “Jor­ma Kauko­nen Trio” all through the 1990’s.

David Freiberg also intro­duced me to Grace Slick and Paul Kant­ner while I was work­ing with Kathi…they talked about get­ting a band togeth­er called “Jef­fer­son Star­ship” and asked if I’d like to join them. I had to go back to Eng­land to do some work there…but did join a cou­ple of years lat­er
