Any famous last words?

Yes. I read your interview with Mark from Taist of Iron. I am Mark Bakke who was the 5th member of the original line-up. I played with the group for about 8 months before leaving to start a new band called 4Play in Tacoma, Washington. My sister just saw Lorrainne over the weekend and Mark, Jeff, and Lorrainne are talking about getting back together. I live in Newport Beach, California so its a little difficult to join them, but I would love to play again with the group. It's been 22 years since we played Midland Hall during those battle of the band nights.
