The Friendly Stranger, an early San Francisco progressive band was booked to play at Jim Pagnee's (spelling?) Palace nightclub 1996 where the house band was Little Liz

Anderson and the Palace Pages. During a hang-out time at the home of

one of the Pages the Friendly Stranger was turning on the Pages members

(a first time for them) and suggested to them the cool name "Iron

Butterfly". The rest is rock and roll history.
