“I first time I met David, we were standing on the side of the stage at Devonshire Downs, which used to be a place in the San Fernando Valley, and we were watching Jimi Hendrix play.
“Relationships really come into play here. Through James and Jackson and Joni Mitchell, there was another aspect of the community, and Russ Kunkel and I were all friends with those guys, especially with David and Graham. I did a little work with Crosby, Still & Nash, and then with Neil Young, too, but most of my playing was with David and Graham. We’re all very good friends.
“One of the nicest things I really enjoyed was when Phil Collins and David Crosby hooked up and did Another Day In Paradise together. We did the Arsenio Hall show, the three of us. I’m such of fan of David, Graham – all of these guys. I sit there and go, ‘What am I doing here?’” [laughs]
