I was having lunch with my drummer in a Canadian-Chinese restaurant in 1975.
 A waiter led us through the huge empty dining area, across a pond bridge, to a table away
from sight. We were two looong-haired freak musicians in a square working class town.
From a near distance two middle-aged town ladies kept staring and sneering at
Dave's hard prison-tattood arms and four-inch fire engine red platform shoes.
I whipped around and grinned back through a long mustache, and one lady's
hilarious eyes spun in opposite directions from surprise. Dave lived too hard to
ever grow old so he left us in the 1980s, but my song here is for those shoes.
