When Jim first heard Barracuda he did not put down his guitar until he learned it from note to note and the rest is history.

Eddie Studebaker

Eddie Studebaker started playing drums at age 5. “Both of my older brothers were drummers, so taking up the drums was a natural thing.” Joined my first band, Crystal Water” I played in a few high school bands for fun. But wanting to pursue music as a career. I moved back to the bay area. Played in the SF club scene from 79 to 83, when I auditioned for Mary Balin of the Jefferson Airplane/ Starship. The audition consisted of jamming with the keyboardist until Marty walked in. He asked “Mark”, What do you think?” Mark said, “He’s good.” Marty turned to me and said, “Well, you look good, you’re in, show up tomorrow for rehearsals.” Had a tour booked for the entire Eastern Seaboard. We started in NYC. After a few dates. Marty cancelled the tour. In 1985, the Marty Balin Band, shared the bill with the David Elan Band. When I heard them, and their original material, I wanted in that band. I told the bass player, that if the drummer left, to give me a call. Got a call a few weeks later. Auditioned, and their manager just said, “You’re the one.” Stayed with that band for five years. Managed by Bill Graham, who had Eddie Money and Santana. We opened for Eddie Money four times.
