"Then we got a manager. Not only did he book the band, serving as our liaison, but he also maintained our mailing list and published a monthly newsletter of band happenings titled 'The OHO Beat.' Suzie Mudd, the late editor of Maryland Musician, wrote, 'I’d like to tell you about OHO manager, Bob Phillips. This band is very, very lucky. This guy is everything a manager is supposed to be and more. He genuinely adores the band and its music and he believes in it with his heart and soul; someone to believe in what you are doing and someone willing to get involved, bust his ass, and make things happen.' Bob responded, 'Managing can be fun, or it can be a nightmare. Fortunately for me there is OHO.' Dealing with 5 complicated personalities, four of whom were also conflicted and whose actions forced Bob to question if they did, truly, have a common aim, eventually took its toll on this extremely generous and mild-mannered human being. The honeymoon ended soon thereafter. In July 1991 I received his resignation letter that read, 'I am resigning for the sake of my sanity.' Do the math."-Progression Magazine, Issue 45, page 52.
