Big fan of the Hip. In 1969 a fifteen-year old Eric Johnson would come to my apartment to take guitar lessons from my roommate (Lee Pence, now deceased and never famous). Eric was already in a band called Mariani and getting some local attention.

Lee also tutored Carla Olson, later of the Textones with Cathy Valentine.
