"Saw Mingus @ the Tyee Motor Lodge Tumwater Wa in about '77. He stopped the band in the middle of the set and tore Danny a new asshole for getting lost. Mingus made off with my housemate Michaels' girlfriend and we has to retrieve her from his room, so I've seen Mingus, pissed off and naked except for a towel on the middle of the night. Danny subsequently stole my friend Manny (who's band opened)'s tenor and they had to get a search warrant for his hotel room in Seattle the next day, to get it back."
