Trying to connect with 1989 bands Multiple Places and Bones Explosion in NOLA

Especially Bones because his last name is not easy to spell.

Anyway in 1989 I lived across the street from those two bands and was a garden-variety sound guy. I was locally famous up north and went to NOLA to get away from the "lifestyle" of music. Well that was a mistake going to New Orleans . So who lives across the street was a band recently on MTV (1989) .

I had a solid 10-hour a day job so this sound stuff was pretty much for fun.

On the way to a sound gig, two guys in bands mentioned above ask about "Chilton". I only knew of Chilton manuals for cars, as any young people with cars usually bought the manual for it. One of them asked "have you been living in a cave?". I said "maybe".

Next, they ask me about a song called The Letter. I told them I hated it and wanted to know if "Coming Into Los Angeles" by Arlo was the same thing but better. Hold on, I know them's fightin' words

So we set up the PA, basic stuff and I don't remember any more except meeting a totally content guy that looked exactly like Alex Chilton when I remembered this 25 years later! Shook his hand and felt that jolt I was in the presence of a real VIP. 25 years later (lately) I learned about Big Star and their influence on early Alternative icon musicians (Multiple Places was an Alternative Band).

I've wanted to ask Bones or the Bass player for Multiple Places if that was Alex we sound brokered for.

Those were good times but I drank too much and ate too many Everclear jello shots

Someone PM me if you have an email. I don't do Facebook
