Come As You Are — 1968–69
After high school, I formed a new band called “Come As You Are” and actively began writing and arranging my own music. This chapter captures the fear and anticipation of recording at a Chicago recording studio. Without question I knew that I had to pursue music as a career. During this period, I began to delve into the supernatural and occult, ESP, fortune telling, and communicating with the dead. In August of 1969 I left Wisconsin with the intent to perform at Woodstock.
