1977 was a transitional year for me as I spent more and more time in the studios with Steve, and I was going more than a bit stir-crazy.

I wanted to get out there doing gigs and touring. So mid year I decided to quit my pretty safe full time employment with Steve and take my chances as a freelance tour manager.

Before I 'flew the nest' though I had a very interesting visit to LA with Steve.......house hunting !!
