Wasn’t he part of early Van Halen history? Co-wrote one of their demos or something like that?

He also tried to get VH a record deal in 76, before Gene Simmons came on the scene. He was more involved later into 77, but I will save that story for when my book comes out later this year.

He also co-wrote — with Steven T. of Venus and the Razorblades — Young and Wild, which was done on the 77 WB demo.
