1982

The Normals is the only band ever that I joined and not formed. In 1982 after working with Jules Hanon for three years and not being able to get a handle on the new music scene I took a break and joined The Normals as lead guitarist and vocalist. They were already a rough three piece band and they wanted to amp up their sound as well as increase their repertoire. Though I only played with them for three months we did play many shows and ended up recording this 4 song EP.

One interesting note: When I left the band they broke up. The drummer and bass player quit music altogether. Ed Kay went on to produce a number of singles and albums and eventually became a writer of chidren's books.

Musicians: Ed Kay on guitar and vocals, Bob on bass, Bruce on drums and me on guitar and vocals.
