Patrick was seldom interested in what the teachers were talking about, and could be found attaching strings to the top of the swing set and recording what are now recognized as his first bass lines on to a cassette boom box. Josh was the real troublemaker of the class, always jumping on tables and singing into a pencil as the teachers rushed him off to the principal’s office.
