A few variations from the above.... Sometimes a band member would stay over or come back
for a couple gigs or a tour.  In 82 Keith Johnson stayed over for the first few gigs with Ralph
before Mike joined the band. In 84, Mike Waldhart played second guitar for a few gigs.
And when Harvey was vocalist Tim Welch drummed for some shows.
Also, Tim Biskup played drums for the 1991 Eurpean tour.
