Orleans July 15th
Lazlo's Place drummer Gizz Navarro offered to stand in for this three week tour. Former
Samiam drummer Dave Ayer, who recorded the two 20th anniversary albums and subsequently
toured with us in 1997, disappeared without trace, while Matt McCoy, originally slated to
play, pulled out only two weeks before the first show. I had a quick rehearsal in Los
Angeles with Gizz and Tommy Komisar (BadTown Boys) who stood in on Bass, before driving to
San Francisco to catch the flight to New Orleans. On arrival at New Orleans airport Gizz
and I moved over to the international arrival area where Charlie, Alvin, Vice Squad, The
Vibrators and The Business were due to arrive.
Charlie Harper Quote Of The Day
After trouble with the work permits, plane broke down and the band arrived really late.
