On his name being left off Aerosmith's "A Little South Of Sanity" 18:45 "I was on tour with them for about two years doing live recording and live broadcasts. And recorded a lot of "South Of Insanity", but you won't see my name on the record. You won't see my name on the record for i guess legal reasons. The producer that they hired, they didn't want to pay him and I was part of his team. He was someone that I'd done a bunch of records with - Kevin Elson. And they, for whatever reason, didn't want to pay him or something, you know, legal stuff that I didn't quite understand. But anyway, you won't see my name on that record, but I recorded most of those tracks."

On his early relationship with Eric Martin (Mr. Big) 52:30 "On that record (1989's self-titles debut) we kind of bumped heads a little bit. On the end of (Addicted To That Rush) he says 'One of these days, pow, right in the kisser" - he's talking to me. I just pushed his buttons. Eric and I work together all the time now and we laugh about it."

On the upcoming live Mr. Big DVD 53:08 "We did another live from the Budokan DVD that should be out soon. It's an awesome show - the production is just off the hook. I finished it up last year. It's with Matt Starr playing drums, and Pat was sitting in on a couple of tunes, and singing harmonies. "
