Wolf; between then and the time I finally graduated, I went through a few changes in major. Thinking back to that particular time, it was an amazing experience, for which I am deeply grateful.

Here's my 1st bass, a 1971 Fender Musicmaster. I made a new body in woodshop in high school & used the neck & electronics from the Musicmaster.



Here's the woodshop bass -

Nice Mullet in your promo shot rusty. We could have guessed the date without being told ;-)

I had the mullet before they were called mullets! I survived the disco of the 70's only to succomb to the big hair of the 80's! Here's a better shot. My kids love to make fun of this one!

That look's coming back into fashion Rusty. Now here's a look that never went out...

graeme

This was the night of Prince Charles' first wedding in 1981. I can't say as I've changed much ;-) The guitarist with the afro is now totally bald.

Unfortunately (or fortunately!!!), I will never have the mullet again, my next look will be bald too! As soon as my crop circle on top gets a little bigger, I'm shaving it! It works for Tony Levin!

I heard on the radio this morning (on the bbc so it must be true) that scientists had developed an anti balding serum from the lining of a pigs bladder. Apparently it's to be injected and forms a protective layer around the follicles while promoting new growth. I think I'd rather go bald ;-)

Well, it's not the whole band, but this is ca. 1993. Both basses are mine, a Ron Guliotta and a David King fretless.

Yeah, David. On the other hand, "A year passes like nothing, with the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers."

Heard a line that probably fits us all- "I'm trying to figure out what happened to the 20 years between 1969 and 1975, and the six months between 1976 and 2011!"

Never played with the Rhythm Kings; but I did sit in with the Radio Kings in the mid 90's when they played a gig in Charlotte and their bass player had to return to Boston.

Just came across this and remembered this thread. Maybe 1971? Guild Starfire, I think (with a coiled cord!). Would have been a few years before I learned about Alembic. And it looks like I'm reading music. Ha! I developed my commanding stage presence early on.

You are correct sir. Also some Spirit, Jethro Tull, Ars Nova, and a bunch of original music that sounded a lot like the above. Ha!
Mark, that is a most excellent picture!!

Mark wins!
Bonus points if your band played My Sharona.

I'm guessing that was high school and you had a gaggle of groupies for sure.

"The Knack" was a great band!!! The songs were well crafted and always a little dirty: ("...And she makes you want to scream, Wishing you could get inside her pants...). HA!!! That guitar solo in "My Sharona" is insane!!!

Yea we did My Sharona. I'm thinking I was playing Let's Go by the cars here. We also had a great female singer so we managed to do some Pat Benatar,Joan Jett, and The Go Go's. Fun Times!

Used a pic. The drummer is Lou Gramms nephew and the son of drummer Ben Gramm. Guitarist is very talented and very wealthy. This was before metro sexual body waxing.

Coiled cords . . . . KUSTOM PA cabs . . . . I remember you would rule the world if you had a Shure VocalMaster head and a pair of Altec Voice of the Theaters. Moving the B3 from place to place (groan . . . . ). The band descending on Denny's or IHOP or Waffle House after the gig with tonight's catch . . . . I miss the fun I had in those way simpler times, would give anything if it were still that way.

I hear ya Joey. My current band was preparing to play an outdoor festival here in Knoxville. The money wasn't going to be great, but we have been giving all the money to the members who have lower paying jobs anyway. Then we found out that the "PAY" was actually the "COST" of participating in the festival. Let's see... haul all our shit downtown (where there is little to no parking), hang around in the heat of the day waiting for our turn to play, no sound check, hang around the rest of the evening (once you're there you're trapped), get treated like a nuisance by the promoter... and PAY for the privilege??? Nah, I'll stay home and have a beer.

I'm happy that in the 80's I was too young for band pictures. :-D

Well, I have too look if I find the picure of my band when we were standing on a heap of grit which looked pretty awkward. At least I have a print of it somewhere...

Today I found a video on youtube from my first USA tour in 1992 with the reggae artiste Pato Banton. The gig is Skippers Smoke house in Tampa Florida
On that tour I was playing a white casio Midi guitar that I replaced for a Fender Strat Ultra on the second leg of the tour which was the west coast of the USA.

I'm on the left hand side of the video and the music starts about 2 mins in which is after the interview with Pato.
