Geoff played a couple of parties with THE MOB after that, but his heart wasn't into heavy metal cover tunes. He was a big Peter Gabriel fan and wanted to write progressive music.

Inspired by the buzz they got at METALFEST, the 4 guys in THE MOB - Chris, Mike, Scott and Eddie - started a 5 day a week rehearsal schedule in Scott's parent's garage where they had built a studio to work on writing original music. It seemed like we hardly ever saw them anymore.

At the time, I was trying to reform JOKER with the Paul Passarelli who was my best friend then. I must admit that we did not have the same practice regimen as the "The Mob" guys, but we did have legendary parties.
