    I'm just glad the religious people were dead wrong with their interpretation. They wrote books telling us it meant a choice between having 25 white crosses in hand or consuming them in order to stay up from 4pm to 6am. I consider myself a fairly creative guy but that is a stretch beyond even my mental means. But then back in that day all of the do gooder adults seemed to figure everything we said must be some kind of drug reference. I hate to think how they interpreted us when we said "Joe is calling Ralph on the big white phone."

    WHAT??!!!

    Never heard this one... won't break rules and go religious but that sounds like Jack Chick territory and hardly qualifies as exegesis....but bizarre... I gotta read more about this one!

    I always had a theory when I figured out songs (cover) 'there has to be an easy explanation for how they got this sound' and boom... he was playing a 12 string that had broken strings that led him to the 'big chords' and the doubled effect... which led to the arrangement etc....

    I'm with you, I love hearing about Dave lindley using 'broken' limiters and compressors to get the 'order of the barking seal' sounds etc....

    and I try to stay open to that stuff... There was a bar we used to play that if I stood in a specific place... I could sustain like crazy if I was on my tweed setting on my tone king... man, that place was magic... very fun on 'As the Raven Flies' type stuff...

    I was just having fun actually. Seemed like he was taking himself too seriously. I like a couple of their songs. Like this one:

    Wow! Pedrini's Music. Big flashback for me! I used to go there sometimes too. A friend of mine's parents owned Graham Music in Temple City on Las Tunas. Did you ever go there?
    My high school girlfriend went to Rosemead H.S. so I used to hang out in that area even though I grew up a little bit east of there.

    It's like a 5-50 bumper-to-bumper warranty. Does it expire at ten to six?

    Have you heard the jam that Kath goes into at the end of SCP on the Live at Carnegie Hall album? When the regular song ends, he jams, everyone else comes in slowly, then at the very very end he does some lightning fast stuff that I will never be able to comprehend.

    Are you from El Monte or Baldwin Park?

    I never knew that Temple City music store.

    My wife grew up in Rosemead, Downey, Bell Gardens, and Moreno Valley, so we are both SGV folks. My family moved to L.A. six generations ago on my mom's side, and four generations ago on my dad's side. Mostly NE L.A./Highland Park area, or Boyle Heights/Huntington Park area.

    Sounds like you might be in the neighborhood of my boss in terms of age. He also went to Alhambra High, though he graduated in '70, while I graduated in the '90s.

    Was his name really Chick? I’ve never heard of anyone else with that last name.

    When I got to California in ‘73 I was going to school in Boyle Heights. The first town I visited (after first driving to the Sunset Strip, of course) was Alhambra. That’s when I found Pedrini’s. When I left the dorm I moved to an apartment on Meridian Street in Highland Park, which I loved for 6 years. Later moved just North of Las Tunas in Arcadia on Doolittle. Most of my friends moved to the beach cities the West Side or OC. I loved the San Gabriel Valley.

    It is how long you are supposed to leave the cake out in the rain. Pretty sure.

    The Ladies in gold (and sometimes silver) outfits in the Quarter liked to ask those lonely looking businessmen what time it was. What a great way to get negotiations goin'. A lady had got to keep track of time, to know how much to charge sometimes.

    Terry is so underrated, and should be right alongside Jimi, Eric, Jeff, Page, Duane, Dickey, Peter, Joe, Johnny, and the other 60s/70s guitar gods that we grew up with and aspired to be like.
