Tim Piper has been, by times, my roommate, my bandmate, my travelmate, my confidant, and my friend. It’s largely due to the efforts of Tim and his former consort Diane Gallagher that I met Catherine those many years ago (14 at last count). Tim is both a great storyteller, and someone to whom great stories happen (that several of those great stories happened with me along for the ride is something I’m grateful for).
As Tim recounts here in some detail, his first girlfriend our mutual friend Yvonne, was from Saskatoon. And all of us from those days remember the time that Tim disappeared off to Saskatchewan with Yvonne for a time; our friend Stephen Southall used to say “Pip’s in Sask” when people asked.
