Album Notes
The Story of Fairytales

I met Susan at the China Club in NYC one Tuesday night, in the snow and the rain. I said, hello gorgeous whats your name. Susan she replied, so what do you do Tony? Oh I'm a drummer who just moved to town. Oh yea well I need a drummer for the band I'm putting together. Can you play? I'm a great drummer I replied with the most confidence I could muster, she said great lets meet in my studio next week and I'll play you some of my material. We met soon after at "Studio One" 212 East 52nd Street, Sutton Place. to say the least I was impressed and so was she... Do you know any guitar players? she asked me. Yes I replied I know this guitarist from Staten Island, Vincent he's a good friend of mine and we play in a club date band together. You know, pay the rent. Set it up so I can meet him she replied. So Vince went down to meet Susan one evening too, he said she gave him a pretty hard time but in the end she knew he was perfect for the venture. Susan gave most people a hard time, she was a smart and clever girl who took no bullshit without a fight. The rest was history, we had a studio, talent and creativity. It was a holy trinity of a writing and recording team. Susan knew a bass player and invited him along to play on the recordings. Erik played very well but was not always available, he played on most of the material on this record. It was a crazy, fun and very magical time recording and writing these songs in the winter of 1987 and 1988. You can hear this magic in the songs and recordings. Susan unfortunately passed away 6 years after these songs were recorded. I miss her and held onto the recordings while living all over London and then remixing them in my studio in Germany. Lately, I would hear her whispering in my ear "Tony get the music out there, it needs to be out there." So I spoke to Pam her sister and Vince who both agreed. and with no further ado ...In the words of Jimi Hendrix "If the 6 turns out to be 9, I don't mind, I don't mind"... "play on drummer play on"

Almost forgot, In the beginning we called ourselves "The Lairs." But later we all agreed on "Fairytales" when one of us mentioned it.
Tony Natale

Susan loved shoes, high heeled shoes.
She loved her family, her friends, her men.
But most of all, Susan loved music.
Poet, Singer, Muse.
With a voracious dedication to her art,
A sexy creative force,
An innovator,
A brutal tornado,
She fought to the end.
She never gave up, she never let go.

To my beautiful, crazy, funny, tear stained, mascara running,
bigger than life sister,

Cry no more, Lady November, you are free.
I love you, now and forever, Pamela

Thank you to Tony and Vinny for making this happen.
You made her Bedtime Stories - dreams come true.

Pamela Rickey Panitz

In my view Susan was a gifted artist and songwriter. A perfect vocalist for the music we created together along with
Tony Natale, Susan was a rare talent I miss her and if she was here with us I think we would be as big as Blonde.
I will never forget the time with Susan.
