“I also did a quick flirt with acting for about a year,” he recalls. “I was really quite horrible, but it was money. I’d just do whatever I had to back then to make it week to week. That went on until I landed a gig with [San Francisco harmonics player] David Burgin. David got me a gig playing with Dr. John and Maria Muldaur when I was about 17 or 18, introduced me to different people. Then I started playing with Billy Cowsill [of the Cowsills].” James also opened a couple times for Stevie Ray Vaughan when Vaughan would swing through Canada.
