campbell: i can remember ted coming on and jumping off the drum riser it blew me away
Irene - Upper Michigan: My husband & my wedding song was "Together" from the Free for All album....but I don't think you sang that track. Did Meatloaf sing the vocals on that song?

DEREK ST. HOLMES: WE BOTH SAT DOWN AT THE PIANO AND DECIEDED TO WRITE A SONG THAT SOUNDED VERY MUCH LIKE PAUL RODGERS AND FREE AT THE TIME AND I WAS VERY EXCITED ABOUT SINGING IT
DEREK ST. HOLMES: UNTILL TED AND I AND HIS PRODUCER GOT IN AN ARGUMENT AND I QUIT OVER MUSICAL PRODUCTION DIFFERENCES
DEREK ST. HOLMES: ALAN THAT IS BECAUSE THEY WANTED THE SONG TO SOUND TEENY BOP
campbell: how was schenker to work with is he as difficult as they say he is
DEREK ST. HOLMES: IT WAS REALLY TEDS PRODUCER FLEXING HIS MUSCLE
Irene - Upper Michigan: thanks for the insight...very interesting to know
DEREK ST. HOLMES: Campbell YES
Alan/Nicholas-NC: IT was confusing to the fans....I remeber thinking ...who the hell is that??
campbell: he seems to get worse as he gets older
DEREK ST. HOLMES: ALAN PLEASE EXPLAIN
DEREK ST. HOLMES: MEATLOAF WAS NOT WORKING OUT
Alan/Nicholas-NC: I mean when MeatL appeared on the FFA album
