    Default Wooohooo, I found my stash of pictures from the '70's.

    I just got done scanning all of these in to my computer. Most are old Instamatic and are about to fall apart. Getting them digitized will preserve them.

    Here's some shots of the Rogers from waaaay back.

    Here's a few more.








    In this picture below, a very good guitarist was helping us set up and doing the mic check while I was out in the middle of the dance floor directing the progress.

    This was my first hot rod. 1972 Chevy Chevelle. 327 4brl and ready for this? Factory 4 speed by Muncie.








    Notice the letters in the side window? It spells Specter. That was the name of my band back then and this particular vehicle was deemed the Specter Limousine.

    Next came the van after I (on the most stupid day of my life) sold the Chevelle.

    Man oh man, brings back memories. Especially taking the bottom hoops off to get that concert tom sound.

    Now anyone that likes concert toms is nuts, lol
    I did not trip and fall. I attacked the floor and I believe I am winning.

    Oh man, a double bass Rogers set? And I think those were the most rugged stands available for that time, I think.

    Sure was the period for afros and flares though, wasn't it? Lol.

    I like the van. It just needs a viking woman riding a white tiger on the side.

    I had a 1970 Chevelle 2-door and my sister had a '69. Great cars and I wish I still had them both.

    The '60's and '70's were great times to be in a band.
