From the Gazette review by Juan Rodriguez:


"The Rod Stewart and Faces show at the Forum on Friday night demonstrated that there is at least one superstar group able to convey genuine feeling for - and enjoyment on playing - rock 'n' roll. They move, raggedy-limbed, the way their music told then to move.


Their natural reactions provided relief from what is becoming the norm in rock shows: the posturing stars who choreograph themselves to an image, the band that turns up the amps and methodically pounds one into oblivion, or the tremulous harmony singers so intent on cleanliness and "perfection" that they seem at distance from reality...


Lead guitarist Ron Wood had returned to the Faces from his stint on the recent Rolling Stones tour of America, and he was in an obviously mellow mood (Faces music don't have to live up to the Demon)..."


October 26 Sunday

After training the rat [Rob and I had to train a rat in a 'Skinner Box' for Psych class] I met Bob and Janet [outside Laird Hall]. They told me that Janet was going to have a baby, and Bob was the father.


October 29 Wednesday

The rat learned to push the bar. Harray!



November 1975


November 7 Friday

A 90 minute recording done in my basement with Ralph, Mike, Rob and Michelle. This is the longest recording of this era and one of the longest to date. It is also the last of these people together....





Around this time Rob looked at other Volvos to drive. I drove him and Mike to a house in Kirkland to check one out, it was pouring rain.


November 28-30 Friday-Sunday

Sheila visited.
