Robb sounded profoundly blown away. ' 'Yeah, man. He emailed me, man. ' 'You better believe it, Gaze, man. It's Teabag. It's fuckin' beautiful. ' Teabag was Sacha Gervasi, an English kid we'd met at the Marquee Club in London in 1982. He'd become a friend and even roadied for us in his school holidays. Then he'd disappeared – it was complicated and messy – and we thought we'd never hear from him again. Now he was back on the scene. ' 'Well fuckin' email him back and ask him. ' I emailed Teabag straight away.

I organized all the gigs, did all the promo, made all the posters and stuck them up. , so I'd get my mother to write me a note to leave school early so that I could prepare. 'I don't know if this is right,' she'd say, but she never said no. I wanted to put on a gig at my junior high. Realizing that things weren't working out with Bruce and the guys, I put my own band together for the gig. I called in this kid Steven Franklin who played drums. Gary moved from acoustic guitar to bass and I called the band Truck.

Backstage, a tall slim guy, very Jewish with big hands, brown eyes and a scrambled way of speaking, was waiting: David Krebs, the man who discovered AC/DC and Aerosmith. The manager of Ted Nugent, Def Leppard and the Scorpions. The man we needed to impress. ' I was stoked. 'Fucking unbelievable. The people loved us. ' Krebs appeared blown away. 'You were hot, but you might have had good luck tonight. ' Twenty-four hours to prepare to blow Krebs out of the arena for a second time. Then he might come good on the deal he'd been promising since he first made contact.
