To that point I had not considered myself a songwriter but more of a singer keyboardist in a cover band.
I had written a song years before for TW-4 called So Long Now that we rarely played but other than that my only solo song writing attempt had been "I'm Gonna Make Ya Feel It" which we first recorded in 1971. It has been a mystery to me all these years as to how I came up with Lady in the first place.
We opened the show and as I recall it was a great success primarily for the kids and the Marines who sponsored the show for underprivileged children.
Both bands did a fine job for the sellout crowd at the Omni.
Tom Scholz the guitar player and keyboard wiz was the mastermind behind the group and remains so to this day.
It's good to have high expectations and goals because every once in a while you could fall over yourself head first into something special.
Most times however you simply bump your head but not that time.
