“It was just me and Tony at first, playing together and developing material,” he recalls. “And then he would invite different bass players over to play. There was an upright bassist named Juno, and then we played with Jaco Pastorius, which was a great opportunity for me. And Jeff Berlin also came up.” By this time Williams had gotten a demo tape from bassist Tony Newton. “He loved it,” Holdsworth recalls, “and he was determined that this was the guy that we were going to use for the band.”
For awhile, Lifetime was just me and Tony. There were no other members, so different bass players would come by until we found someone he really dug. Jeff Berlin came by and so did Jaco Pastorius around December 1975. It was an interesting time.
What was it like to play with Pastorius and Williams as a rhythm section?
It was just really amazing. I loved Jaco. There are some recordings of the rehearsals, but I don’t know where they are now. They would be embarrassing to hear. Tony was looking for someone who played less than Jaco. He wanted something specific in the bass division.

Eddie Coralnick Allan was too busy to work with Steely Dan, he was too involved with his company, Beer Enhancements Systems, working with the FIZZBUSTER and was off to England for a Beer Festival.......He turned down large $$$. Was not into learning alot of Steely Dan songs, like joining a top 40 band.....Beer Enhancement Systems was looking up at the time...... no interest from Allan, Money was not everthing to Allan.....
