"Freitag 12 august 2022. mad painter practice for the Jungle Friday 26 August 2022, 8-845 prompt. Al hendry thought I was doing Chris Squire licks on bass; back in '74 jay Gruberger said Chris's bass lines sounded like goose farts! To make this Jim Harold (RIP) relevant, Chris played with Peter banks (guitar) first two yes albums; Pete left to form Flash, whose drummer on on the Buck 45 on Rat records! also, Schmel herbie Hind can play that Blind faith b-side "cant find my way home" perfectly, ken and gee Julie harormonizing good on this; maybe I might record it, Ken Highland's PinUps on!".....
