The great thing about the first punk scene in Los Angeles is that the bands and the audience were one and the same.

One night while I was out with the gang from Nervous Gender—I think at the Whisky A Go Go—we spotted Stan Lee of The Dickies just hanging out, waiting in line to get into the show.

My friends were crazy about him, but I preferred non-“cute” type bands. I was always the more cerebral one of the group.
