My friend and early WITCH fan Sean Clark (shown here giving the WITCH salute as he
gets into my Dad's 1971 VW bug).  A great drummer, he went on to form the band MALFUNCTION.
We attended many WITCH shows together, and Sean is the one who videotaped the August 31,
1985 Prado Park show.  He's also the one responsible for the after-show photo shoot in the
Radio City parking lot on the night this photo was taken (see below)
