Richard Manuel quote lends itself to a Bow Thayer album title.

There is a bit of a story behind Bow Thayer & Perfect Trainwreck's album Spend It All featuring Levon Helm on drums.

The process of recording this album was very trying for the band as the original bassist quit & relocated, original tracks were almost lost, Levon had to drive down to Boston from Woodstock in an ice storm & Bow had to borrow money from a credit card to wrap up the album's production as the original record label went bankrupt. Levon told many a story to Bow & the boys & one related to the late Richard Manuel who would say "spend it all" whenever things got dicey.
