Opening act

We opened the show that night. I was 18. The band was called 'Flash' and I remember it like yesterday. We did a 30 minute set of original songs our guitar player (Chris Geppert) wrote followed by another local band called the 'Laughing Kind'. We carried a Hammond B3 for our set, and John Paul Jones used it on 'Your Time is Gonna Come." Chris had a recently restored Firebird V and a 200 watt Marshall head with (4) 100 watt cabinets. Jimmy Page had that perfect Les Paul- he did that thing with the violin bow and the Echoplex. I'll never forget the one conversation I had with Jimmy. He was walking by me after the show. I said, "Hey Jimmy, are you guys going to San Antonio tonight?" Jimmy said, "Yes." I said, "Can I get a ride with you?". He said," No."
Chris had better luck. (Must have been the Marshall stack) He made an appointment to sell Jimmy an original Fender P-Bass: Serial #001. True story, they met on the banks of the San Antonio River walk to show the bass. Jimmy and Robert paddled across the river on a paddle boat., looked at the bass and bought it for cash on the spot. In 1979, Chris changed his name to Christopher Cross and won 4 Grammys.
