-After a year or so of playing with Dresden, we had played publicly as a band just one time (at a block party in Hacienda Heights that I think Karl arranged and which had been cut short by the police and their helicopter) and we recorded a 3 song demo, all without a singer. We had been searching for a full time singer the entire time I was in the band, but I was eager to play more shows and record more, so I decided it was time to leave the band and find a band with more immediate activity that might lead to rock stardom. Dave, Steve, and Karl all had full-time jobs and it just didn't seem to me that it was as important to them to "make it" as a musician as it was to me.+After a year or so of playing with Dresden, we had played publicly as a band just one time (at a block party in Hacienda Heights that I think Karl arranged and which had been cut short by the police and their helicopter) and we recorded a 3 song demo, all without a singer. We had been searching for a full time singer the entire time I was in the band; our near-miss at an appropriate singer was when Steve connected with John Hall, formerly of [[https://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=f14cmf3XleE|Shiva]], but John flaked on the night of his audition and seemed to avoid Steve'​s calls after that. I was eager to play more shows and record more, so I decided it was time to leave the band and find a band with more immediate activity that might lead to rock stardom.

Steve was driving a brand new 1985 black Corvette that was sexy as hell and it was obvious that Steve was doing well financially) (Steve was working at CompuCorp as a software engineer, Dave worked for Sears selling and repairing home appliances, and Karl worked for a music store giving guitar lessons and selling musical equipment.

-As it turned out, my wife's family lived near Fresno, so we had several opportunities to see each other and work on some of Steve'​s material from the Dresden/​Vertrauen days (again, mainly, "​[[ftp://​vert.synchro.net/​music/​DRESDEN/​Requiem.MP3|Mass For The Dead]]"​),​ and Steve recorded some of our improvisations in his private studio ([[https://​soundcloud.com/​rob-swindell/​steve-deppes-last-jam-with-rob-swindell-on-v-drums|listen here]]). But mainly, we just socialized on the occasions that my wife and kids and I would visit my in-laws near Fresno. Steve enjoyed bringing over DVDs and sharing his favorite shows and movies with anyone that would sit and focus long enough. We played board games and just talked. Steve was now mellower and a bit more comfortable in social situations, so he would join our New Year's Eve and birthday parties eagerly. ​+As it turned out, my wife's family lived near Fresno, so we had several opportunities to see each other and work on some of Steve'​s material from the Dresden/​Vertrauen days (again, mainly, "​[[ftp://​vert.synchro.net/​music/​DRESDEN/​Requiem.MP3|Mass For The Dead]]"​),​ and Steve recorded some of our improvisations in his private studio ([[https://​soundcloud.com/​rob-swindell/​steve-deppes-last-jam-with-rob-swindell-on-v-drums|listen here]]).
