A chance conversation backstage at the Dane County Coliseum on the night of Nov. 16, 1977, suddenly made everything seem possible for the Madison rock band Chaser and Michael Massey, its front man and lead singer.

It also opened a trapdoor which eventually swallowed Massey, taking him to a dark place from which he very nearly did not return.
