Pat Rizzo heard Sly Stone was looking for a sax player to join the band. He went backstage at a concert with his horn and Sly told him to go into the bathroom. Sly asked if he was good and Pat said, "Yes, I am." At which Sly said, "You are hired." That fast job interview launched Pat into a long and successful career, which included several albums for Sly, recording a few of his songs with the band, and several years with old blue eyes himself, Frank Sinatra, who became a close personal friend.
