    Great photos.

    Mount Vernon. Wow, back in the '70's one of my bands had the entire floor of what was once an old government building (IIRC). It was empty except for us. I think a relative of one of my band members owned the building. There was a strip joint a few blocks up on Gramatan Ave. The things that stick in your memory!!!

    I did a quick Google search and it looks like the building has a branch of the Eastchester Bank now.
  8. Yeah, definitely not Bernard, the guy I know, who's a guitarist, and no rocket scientist. But boy, the likeness is uncanny. A real doppelganger.

    Those were the days, my friend.
    We thought they'd never end.
    We'd sing and dance forever and day.
    We'd live the life we choose.
    We'd fight an never lose.
    Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days.

    Thank you for your indulgence,

    Around 2003-2004, Virginia Beach Oceanfront. I can't recall what bass I was playing that day.
