Pic of me circa 1976

OMG the bass player in one of my early bands posted this photo that I had forgotten all about on Facebook. Bass player is the dude next to me, I'm on the right. He's in Tennessee now, working as a nurse and part time musician...Man does that pic bring back memories. Can you make out the name of the band from my T shirt?...It's cheese city
5 dollars/euros for the lucky guesser
Pic taken somewhere in and around Glenside, PA about 1978, not 1976. I was about 19 and a half at the time, working at a bank at night processing checks, playing whenever I could, and driving a BITCHIN 1974 camaro type LT, 350 4 bbl, 4 on the floor, killer Pioneer Supertuner 8 track stereo with a Clarion 7 band EQ, Jensen 6x9 Triaxial speakers...I had the best stereo in the state.
Definitely well before the digital age changed life as we know it.


Let's see your pics from back in the day....

I always feel so old reading other fourms, until I read this site, then I feel so amazing young again. hahahaha....

Great shot. The guy next to you looks like a young Elton John, next left Sebastian Coe (the UK guys will know that one) and the guy on the left looks like a young Bryan Ferry who just stepped in something very unpleasant.

Overall, the band looks very frightened of something.

Yeah, and brick walls too ... you just don't want to wind up on this site.
proper lol @ that site. I'd like to see whoever wrote it do better to be honest. I also think they're possibly a little homophobic, perhaps?

Back to the photo anyway, i suppose it was also before a time when you'd get slapped with a £2000 fine for trespassing on the tracks as well?
