Ralston performed at The Kitchen in the late 70's-a fascinating, seemingly improvised evening of manic bits and pieces. I attempted to review it for Flash Art, but difficulty ensued when Ralston himself began to call me from phone booths along Canal in the wee hours. I recall bumping into him on West Broadway and introducing him to Michael Bennet, the affable artworld lawyer and occasional exhibition host. Ralston immediately started insulting Michael (the word ‘parasite’ was used) as I stood stunned. Ralston did not play well with others, a necessity then as it is now. Tim Maul
