i believe i was present, in a fashion, at the first taping of rox.
I do recall the “buzz” of excitement happening somewhere downstairs at 711 E cottage grove. bart was not as well known to me, he showed up with Joe, my summer roommate. It was this house, that summer, that shaped my destiny -as it were-i was a freshman & all things weird & new came my way. Who was this weirdo Bart? his weird girlfriend -i could always make her laugh by tapdancing in the kitchen.
da-da, da-da-da-DAH. 5-6-7-8. she would gawf as i tap tap tapped my way past the overpiling garbage. I think the door to the infamous downstairs was via the kitchen. I remember thinking “what the HELL is that weirdo bart & joe doing down there” Well they were making history! Ta-DAH fame comes so easy to some people- INFAMY as well!
