"As the band filed in, they looked like they had seen a ghost.? Their jaws nearly hit the floor.?They probably weren't sure if I would take the time to fly out to Los Angeles and attend the meeting . . . I closed the door and sat back down at the table.?One by one, I looked Walt, Robert, and Lee dead in the eye.?Jimmy turned out to be a no-show. 'Did you ever, in your wildest dreams, imagine it would come to this?' I asked them."
