    Paul and Jorma were JA. Wasn't never a fan of Grace (albeit attractive sometimes)

    About 10 - 15 years ago he would drive around the Haight in this big convertible with the top down. It was kind of sad.

    They possessed the majority of the musical talent, granted. I was always a big fan of Grace, she is a lunatic.

    Well, she was an indelible presence in the band. I would say a lot of the bands success was based off her charisma. I guess saying Im not a big fan was a bit overstated. I guess, sometimes, I felt like she just got in the way of the others.
