As for Bitch Slap, Willy, Penny Pincher, Marv et all... dunno, I've certainly never seen any definitives on those - lots of guess, but nothing concrete.
And buy the book, it's ace...

"About the band: I think that Mixerman pretty much admitted that the Bitch Slap sessions and his diaries documenting them were fictional. If I remember this correctly, he wrote a post some time towards the end of the previous batch that said, in essence, that the point of the diaries was to serve as a guide to aspiring recording engineers, illustrated and kept lively with anecdotes compiled from across his career. And so you have illustrations of the truly awful assistant (Lance, in the first week or two), the adequate assistant (Lance again, after learning a thing or two) and the excellent assistant ("Rod", from the New York sessions).
So I wouldn't be surprised to hear that many of the details are true, but I'd bet that they didn't all happen in the same set of sessions. (And either way, the first batch of diaries was fantastic reading. )"
To be honest, I could easily believe Mixerman's account being fictional. Otherwise it shouldn't be so hard to crack his identity.

Glad to see so many of you have been enjoying the diaries.
For the record, I have never "admitted" that the diaries were fictional. Quite the opposite really.
