Footnotes

  • "All these strings and picks were obtained while I was cleaning out the studio in Bel Marin Keyes [a small waterfront community in the city of Novato in Marin County, California]. They were all in boxes or in old guitar cases belonging to Jerry. I was not Jerry's personal runner but the runner for the whole band and luckily was able to keep many of their "throw aways" that they didn't want anymore."
    -Former runner
