             first IML, Drummer kick-started the Mr. Drummer Contest which soon
             anchored the Folsom Fair. In 1980, Renslow’s business manager Patrick
             Batt moved to San Francisco, helped Bob Damron found the Eagle bar, and
             became business manager of Drummer during our editorial shift to safe sex.

             thwarted S&M lovers Renslow and Sam Steward, both filmed separately
             by Kinsey, caused Steward to move his Chicago tattoo parlor to Oakland
             (1964), establishing Steward as famous San Francisco author “Phil Andros.”
