My band, circa 1989:



Enjoy these threads! I started this one here a while back, where the emphasis was (at least initially) on individual “rock star” shots of us playing keys. Great to have an update!

Nice Moonglow! Thanks for the old thread, I did a search of recent years and couldn't find anything, this is good stuff! Most of the pics are gone.

EDIT: I misread. Thought you wanted old or nude band photos. My bad, but the pic stays.

Me in my drumming days sometime around 1980. My first good band. Obviously the bass player's mom took the picture. You cannot tell in the picture but there is a gong behind me.

I'll try and cover the "old" and "new" (not nude) criteria in one post.

My pub rock band - having fun in the recording studio, circa 1997:



The same band 20 years later, all members still together, with less hair, more kilograms and a female vocalist:

Nice Dave! And to be able to play together after 4 decades, wow! Half of my old bandmates are dead and gone.

And ditto on Linwood's band, that is very funky! Great singers and that tambourine player!

And another shot of myself and Nashville's own Steve Williams- our lead vocalist and guitar/organist ala Greg Allman - at an outside concert at someone's farm in Ill.

And the girl with her legs up on the porch is my wife, Diane. We started hangin' out together in the Spring of 1970. Little did she know what she was signing on for 48 years later.

Oh the horror ! -- the guy who has ran around 65K miles in his life used to smoke ! shocked

"You had two keyboard players ?"...Paul just played on a few; most of the time he was singing and then Woody ( the guy in front of me) also played trombone. I'm still in touch with most of those guys. i sure miss playin' with Blunt (drummer)...what a feel he had (rip). That sure felt good up under you playin' this type of stuff.

Watching this made me unaccountably happy. Great playing all around. Did everyone go on to musical careers? Also, which stand are you using? It looks like the OnStage logo but I don't recognize that one.

The Baldwin Electro Piano. It was pre-Yamaha CP80/70 by at least 6-7 years, if not longer. A total beast to move around.

Thanks, it was a special band. And my first band where I really felt lucky to be there. Prior to that I was in two bands, both were good but not at this level. Woodrose was a solid two notches up from anything I'd ever experienced at that point in my young life. All of those guys were pretty well known around the area and when they got me it was like -- who is this guy from the North County 'burbs ?! We played original tunes and off beat stuff - The Band, Allman Brothers, Dead. It was really hard to book us but we had a small loyal following - mostly around Ill. and parts of STL.

Yeah everyone was pretty active and played together, and in different bands in STL/Ill., into the beginning of this decade. I think at that point most everyone said -- we're getting a bit old for this bar scene. These days the lead guitarist, bass player and drummer aren't very active at all.

Steve Williams, who I mentioned, moved to Nashville probably sometime in the '90s I think. He has had a very good career. He wrote that song "Red Neck Yacht Club", that was big on the Country charts and I think crossed over onto the pop charts. He's written tunes for a host of other Country artists too. He sings and plays around Nashville with a Soul group called the ConSoulers. They're quite excellent and very popular. He also does duo/trio acoustic contexts with different people, including his wife, who is also a good singer.

The lead guitarist in that Woodrose video , Glenn Harris, is one of the greatest natural musicians I've ever played with in my life. Doesn't read, doesn't really know a lot of theory but he's one of those guys that just has it , a natural. It was sad because he was Leon Russell's road manager for a long time and didn't play at all. But he played rings around all of Leon's guitarists.

I don't know the stand as it was the other keyboard player's stuff. Because of set up logistics I had to use his watered down Motif 88, whatever those things are called. I had my friend's CP4 ready to go but it would have been too much hassle to switch out the keyboards so I just played his stuff. I hated that keyboard, it felt like a toy.

A couple notes from the above band pics of mine. In the very first one, the singer (upper right) is the current lead singer of my original metal band "seventh of never" which I have no pics of (not with me in them, since I joined later).

The guitar player in that same band is also the guitar player in the "two cents" duo that came next (we split off...get it? 2 of us from "money is power"? ....Two Cents? And also what was later to become "Atari Twins".

The Guitar player in "Class X" is also one of the guitar players on "Oh Brother". Also not listed is a band that ran concurrently with "Class X" called "Klose 'Nuff". It was the exact same band with a different drummer - Mark Klose, who is a local radio personality who has been on the radio for years. He didn't want to play that much, so he would split the night with the other drummer and do "meet and greets", etc. We played without him as Class X.
