"I didn't have a place to live for 15 years," he says. "Dudes kept telling me, 'Earn your dues, earn your dues.' So I would go and sit under the Egyptian temple and sign autographs by the Guinness Book of World Records," H.R. recalls. Eventually, he says, "I met Angelo [Moore]. They had a show out there, the Fishbone crew, and after I met him, things started pulling together for the Brains. He said, 'Come on man, H.R. come on, dude. Don't just slack it out like this. Your brothers need you. Do it for us.' I said, 'Oh all right,' and then I talked to Earl."
