Richard: River

Bea: They had a good sound.

Richard: But it wasn’t catching on.

Bea: It was too new.

Connie: Right

Richard: We were a trio.

Bea: Yeah, so I thought we’d get together. Make it a sextette.

Richard: I was into it.

Bea: so then we were The River Phoenix

Connie: And you started dating?

Richard: It was very natural. It felt really natural.

Bea: Yeah.

Connie: But you’re not together anymore?

Richard: The band?
