Kim Simmonds with Dave Walker
Interview #1 part 1 June 25th, 2010 at Pine Creek Lodge and Café.
Dave: that’s the 2nd gig I did in the United States in August in 71 that was at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium which in those days was one of the cooler places to play. The other guy in the picture is Kim Simmonds. And it was amazing I really enjoyed it, it was really cool.
Eddie: Look at those boots they’re cool.
Dave: In those days I was very cool.
Eddie: Where was the first place that you played in the US?
Dave: Wichita Kansas, a place called Century II Pavilion
And that was interesting too cause we had Atomic Rooster open for us. And the guy playing drums…
Eddie: Carl Palmer right?
Dave; No it was after Carl it was the guy who later on went on to be the drummer in Spinal Tap, Ric Parnell who lives in Missoula now, I spoke to him once on the phone (4 years ago).
Note: Ric Parnell showed up out of the blue that night a few hours after the interview and sat in with the band at Pine Creek.
