"In May of 1978, I was on the road as the drummer for the Seattle rock band BIGHORN, and we had three shows scheduled to open for BOSTON", reflects Stevie Adamek.

"The first show was at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii, which could hold about 50,000 people. After that show, we were supposed to fly back to Seattle to open for JOURNEY, and then it was back to opening for Boston somewhere in Oregon, and then Montana. Our debut record on Columbia Records Canada/US, self-titled Bighorn, was on the charts in Honolulu, as, of course, was Boston’s first album. They were just about to release their second album, Don’t Look Back."
