Funny thing about Tim..

April 17, 2017 01:05PM
was that he was a solid, if unspectacular bass player.. but he was really pretty so chicks loved him and every band wanted him because ehe was a good looking glass player.. Its hard enough just finding a bass player.. So, anyways, Tim has had hearing loss most of his life and has a really hard time learning songs off records, tapes or CDs.. He was touring with a band called Intimate Acts for several years when he got the offer to audition for Blackfoot..

Soooooo... I get phone call from Tim,

"Hey Stever (SIC) can you learn these Blackfoot songs on bass and teach them to me so I can audition?"
"Why sure, Tim - no sweat"

So, I learn the tunes (the bigger tunes they did plus most of the newest CD at the time, Medicine Man) and teach them to him and he gets the gig.. Rickey Medlocke, the leader of Blackfoot who now plays with Lynyrd Skynyrd who used to call me frequently when Tim was playing with him, even told Tim he got the gig because of his looks.. So, as a "thank you" Tim gave me a "thanks to" on their CD "After the Reign" that was released during Tim's reign with the band.. I think it was that CD, anyways.. I'd hafta go look to make sure lol



Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
