    I was looking for something else and found this. Me, playing guitar? In somebody's living room? Probably in 1984? I remember the singer's name, Laureen. She worked at a Chinese bakery in Boston where they called her Rolene. And we called the band Rolene & The Shooters. Total freakin' amateur hour, but we played a lot of Boston bars, even had a weekend road trip to Brunswick, Maine. Those were different times. Dig the pedalboard!:roflmao:

    Only about 40 lbs. And I can't jump as high. I used to play behind my head, too. I know, the last resort of a scoundrel. I was shameless. I did try hoisting a Fender Jazz on the back of my neck once. It was not pleasant.:D

    Lol! I didn’t realize that. That would be our rhythm guitarist/lead vocalist. Not quite as grizzled back then as Butch. It might be quite different now! Haven’t seen him in awhile.

    Found 3 photos of me at age 18 9F60F70D-4035-4F46-A87B-DA2296AD6472.jpeg and my first band back in 1978. We’re actually a 4 piece. We’re playing at our singer’s house. He took the photo from the rooftop of his house. That’s me on the left playing the long lost lawsuit Ibanez Precision.

    I thought all evidence had been destroyed but someone posted a photo of the cover band I was in around ‘83. The venue burned down shortly after. Wish I still had that white Ric, but it was stolen a few years later.
