Our house burned down in ’79, after I had been talking to Dave about his new band in the Bay Area. I called him and he invited me to join Spys, which he was re-forming. I replaced Davie Sykes (last heard playing with Boston).
Spys played all the hot spots in the Bay Area. We had a lot of support from people who had come from the Journey organization: road manager, publicist, etc. But alas, it came to naught.
Billy Carmassi went on to play with Aldo Nova. Mark Karan plays with RatDog.
