Not sure why but my mind wandered back to 560 S. Market Street in San Jose, CA, the Rock Garden rehearsal studio where I spent so many hours in the '80's. The building is still there but it has been condemned. After reading the article, I decided to dig a little deeper and found Ed Havel, a former manager of the building. A very courteous Ed filled me in on some of the history and we spoke of a possible memorial site to attract anecdotes and the community to rediscover this SoFA "cultural" icon.
