The Grandmothers of Invention? Did we miss something? Didn't they want to quit?
Meanwhile Don and Bunk became friends whom you don't deny a wish. But let's listen to Wolfhard and his travelogue about LA and especially his visit at Don's: »Of course we talked about Zappanale and Don wanted to be part of the 30. recurrence, even if his health is not that good anymore. I told him, that I would want a performance of „Billy The Mountain“ and he looked at me and answered: „For you I am playing whatever you want.“ « (You can read both parts of the travel report in the Arf-Dossiers no. 99 and the jubilee issue no. 100.)
Well. So what could we do? Accept!
