Saw the Castels compilation CD at Davis-Kidd just last week. Twins ran the old Miller's Cave on Overton Crossing in Frayser. Fun times. U2 played a couple of songs there one night.

Hi guys, I spent quite a bit of time at Millers cave or "the cave as we lovingly called it from the late 80,s -mid 90,s its bark was always much worst than its bite hardly any fights ever broke out there Dave and Don were 2 encredibly talented vocalist and musicians when they sang together they could have given the Everly Brothers a run for their money around 1988 they split for a while to pursue solo projects. Dave and Don were my brothers,musical mentors and above all my friends that I miss very much
Tony Steele bassist/vocalist
