Paula Frazer, what do you remember from that show you did with Faith No More?
I don't remember doing the show really so I don't have many details. It was such a long time ago. It was at the On Broadway Club in North Beach, San Francisco. I sang and played guitar, with Roddy, Bill and Mike. They didn't have a guitar player and were just having friends sit in temporarily. I was friends with Roddy. We worked at a movie theatre together.

 

One song from that show is up on YouTube, what do you think of it?

I think I sound awful on that recording. It was totally made up on the spot and not ever done again - as far as I know unless they turned the band part into a song or something. The band sounds fine but my singing was bad - if you can call it singing.

 

Well, some of us think it sounds really cool.
