Correction: Both Beverley Patterson and I were wrong about Steven Weed—the Steven Weed of the Patty Hearst case and the Steven Weed of the Velvet Illusions were completely different people. I apologize for the error and regret any embarrassment or discomfort it may have caused.
Thank you, Greil, from the surviving members of the Velvet Illusions. — Randy “Jimmie James” Bowles, former co-lead singer/guitarist.
