Shannon Pettit ~  The Tambourine Queen
Shannon was up on stage with us at the 1 September 2002 gig beating her tambourine.  She also did a good imitation of a go-go girl from time to time.  Shannon is pointing to the sign designating the Porta-Potty as her own private "Shannikan"
Playing music with you guys was my highlight.  I felt guilty, though.  Looking off-stage, to my left, I saw three excellent keyboardists in Rudy Volkmann, Butch Hannukaine and Stan Foreman--kind of lined up--just chomping at the bit wanting to play with The Regents.  So, I invited them up.  It wasn't like you guys needed any keyboard help.

Who was that masked man on the Casio to my immediate right?  Was that the legendary Billy McPherson? WOW!  I was watching his hands and thinking, "I don't understand any of this.  I can't even tell by watching what key he's in; so why does it sound so DAMN COOL?" Yeah, I'm impressed.

Thought to myself these guys have got balls to get up in front of all those people with little to no rehearsa!!   When Dave didn't show up there I was too.  I have to tell you I was a little tenative about getting up on stage... it's been a while, but once we started playing it was nothing but a blast.  I want to thank the Regents for that opportunity.  What a trip seeing Rich, Sam, Dick and Billy after so many years!!

Well, I'm here to tell you that I think you guys sounded terrific.  You not only sounded great, you all looked good on stage because you were having a good time together, needling each other, smiling, laughing and making great comments like: "We haven't played together since '65 so if we don't sound good, we'll change our name to "We Suck!".  You have my vote.  You guys were number one that day.  Walt Rattenbury, The Titans, October 2002
