Through the magic of Facebook I have reconnected with a few folks including some former lovers which always proves quite interesting. One of the reconnects is with Ron Paley from my old band days back in Winnipeg.
Ron had a group called The Eternals and like The Jury they also recorded a few hit records. Ron’s band was a little younger than my own so he was still going after I left The Jury to pursue a Radio career when my Daughter Candis was born. Radio eventually took me to California where I ended up forming my own company so I kinda lost track of all the band guys. Ron it turned out started his own company by buying up most of the equipment his band recorded on which they used to build their own recording studio in Winnipeg. Ron since has gone on to building some sophisticated automation equipment for Radio which is far to complicated for me to even begin to describe. The other day on Facebook Ron and I were reminiscing about the fact that we had both recorded some tunes at K-Bank Studios in Minneapolis and I was telling him that I have a much better appreciation for my band days now because unlike Radio they last forever or as Sir Paul said it better … The Beatles are a bigger deal to me now than they ever were when I was a Beatle. The thing I’m most proud of is the fact that there must be a couple of thousand people who live in my gated community but I doubt any of them have records hanging on the wall.
What I’ve never understood about Women is why shortly after meeting me some of them need my money for the rest of their life.
