My friend and early WITCH fan Sean C (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 - August 2, 1985 - Radio City, Anaheim, CA

Peter Wabitt and the WITCH road crew (l to r):  Larry Meyers, Peter, Joe "The Kid" McEwen (R.I.P.), Jim "Happy" Meyers, and Andy.  The Meyers brothers were there since before the beginning, and Joe was Punky's #1 drum tech.  Joe is the son of famed race car driver Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen (http://www.nhra.com/50th/top50/T_McEwen16.html), but Joe didn't go into racing because he wanted to tour with WITCH.  Joe passed away sometime around 2005. - January 24, 1987 - The Whisky, Hollywood, CA
