sessions with Tim Buckley?
I was doing some work in LA with a singer whose manager
also managed Joan Baez. He knew Dylan was auditioning drummers
and he recommended me. I auditioned, and got the gig.
Were you booked for those Buckley sessions while still in
Yes. It was actually a session for The Old Grey Whistle
Test TV show, and the band consisted mainly of The Streetwalkers
who I was playing with at the time.
