This was me in the late '80s, ahead of the times by tapping into the grunge look early. This is also one of the rare photos from that era where I am considerably less stoned than the other person in the picture.

How lost am I in the 80s? I added this retro throwback to the shop's tone arsenal just last week, after wanting one for decades.  

Ah, the 80s. At one point we decided to do individual band photos. Here's mine. I believe this was about 1989. By some miracle of genetics, I still have a full head of hair at age 59. The pe

“Finely groomed mustache?” More like they ran out of napkins at the local Hardee’s.

Me, around 1987. Wife made me put on a button up and go get pictures made. Lol

The hair is long gone now.

30 minutes into that taping, Bea Arthur herself had me thrown out of the building for "distracting" her with my intentional hi-pitched yelp seal-bark laugh whenever she delivered a quip.

 An honorific I cherish to this day.

Whew...for a second there, I thought you were going to reveal that Bea Arthur invited you back to her place for afternoon "tea".  Probably would have made your hair fall out if you had...

First Hamer...it was an eye-opener for me, and a guitar I'd love to track down one day.  I still remember how good it smelled every time I opened the case!

...and note the similarities between Kizanski's (cranial, at least) hair style and this primeval percussionist...

One of my room mates at U of North Texas recorded/produced a few BFS albums (they also were from UNT, albeit several years later). 

I will give y'all a break from posting my 80s band pics for the 100th time, ha.

The 80s were a lot of fun for me; playing in bands, going to dozens of shows including 4 or 5 Texxas Jams, & seeing great local DFW bands like the Telefones/Lightning/Pantera/Andy Timmons....

How lost am I in the 80s? I added this retro throwback to the shop's tone arsenal just last week, after wanting one for decades.

70s white SG that I spray painted the top of black (as in Sabbath). My dad & I chiseled out a hole and put a Kahler trem in. DiMarzio X2N bridge pup. I must have been about to install a new neck pup, I don't remember the hole being there for very long. Yes, parachute pants, rubber shirt, lightning bolt guitar strap; I was 16, we were playing a dance at my former Jr High. Mostly Rush, Priest, Crue... you know, dance music, haha... Good times. Still had my 70's NMV Twin Reverb that I changed the grillcloth to black. That same band won our high school battle of the bands later that year.

Reconnected w/ an old high school pal on FB a few years ago (actually, the kid w/ the Mustang bass in the jr high pic), he sent me that strap!
