In Memory of

Michael Spotts
aka:  Mykel Spatz
1942 -  2010

I remember us playing as opener for Bachman Turner Overdrive at the Tacoma Community College, Tacoma, WA,

Later at gig at the Fresh Air Tavern, Seattle, we started playing a Tower of Power song, Soul Vacination. Some of the real Tower of Power band members came into the club while we were playing their song, jumped up on the stage and joined in jammin' with tambourines and vocals.  I had just broken bass drum head and was playing bass drum parts with stick on the floor tom, uncanny, it stayed tight.

I went to Kaye / Smith afterwards to visit and listen to Back To Oakland with no vocal tracks.  What an event!
