You're playing with everybody, which I think was ideal because I got my name in the paper constantly. I took the dare and got together with Billy Loosigian.

We got about ten songs down, played it, and ended up winning, so we stayed together." They were still gigging as Wild Honey, then they said, "We'll just do it with you for a while," and that was the Boom Boom Band. More
