What does it say when it takes the CEO of the company to replace you?
The Beachcombers‘ bass guitarist, John, needed the afternoon off to go graduate from high school*
… so Will Koch was tapped to fill in
*Despite taking the day off for his graduation, John was able to attend one of Will’s performances.
It seems watching Will play bass on “Day Tripper” meant far more to John than collecting his diploma.
Postscript: Sadly, Will passed away just a few weeks later. The Beachcombers played at his memorial service.
