What part of LA are you in? Will you be willing to pay a good band member some money if you made some money with the band?

He just ran an ad and people called up showing interest he interviewed them and picked the best ones and they practiced every night and got some gigs at some cheap bars got paid part of the bar revenue for payment then grew from there

Mommy's allright, Daddy's allright
They just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender
But don't give yourself away
Father says your mother's right
She's really up on things
Before we married Mommy served
On the WACs in the Philippines
Now I had heard the WACs recruited
Old maids for the war
But Mommy isn't one of those
I've known her all these years
