I was in the band Speedball Baby for nine years. It was quite a ride. We recorded numerous albums, included our major label release, mostly out of a recording studio that was owned at the time by guitarist Matt Verta-Ray down on Ridge street on the Lower East Side. That meant the available hours were 24/7 and the inspiration was followed as it came. It was a pretty magical time.
Touring with Speedball took me to amazing places I don’t imagine I would have visited otherwise. The story of our strip search and near arrest at the Croatian border was documented in an article in the now defunkt Jane Magazine.
