Here is my favorite excerpt from the book: Jim was in the final year of undergrad school as a bio major when Billy came by and sat at a piano in Jim’s apartment that would become cuts on the Cold Spring Harbor album. As Bosse recollects, “I was saying, ‘Wow, this is great stuff’.’ ‘Jim’, he said, ‘I want you to come to the studio and play the guitar parts on it'”. Bosse hadn’t played guitar in a year and was a week from his final exams. “I said, ‘Billy, I can’t. Number one, I’m really rusty. Secondly, if I go into the studio and miss my final, I waste a semester.’ So I passed. One of the major regrets of my life.”
And here is my favorite photo from the book, with Billy on your lower left and Jim the centerpiece of the back row.
