Chuck Berry – it’s living legend day on the ol’ blog

Got a real oldie for you today. None other than Chuck Berry, one of rock’s founding fathers performing in Chapel Hill, NC in May 1971. Is there a more influential guitarist in rock ‘n roll? I got several decent shots of him that day, but had been unable to find the negatives until this morning. […]

Pic of Dave Mason – dedicated to Billy Crain

This old pic of Dave Mason made me think of my friend, Outlaws guitarist Billy Crain, whose mother passed away a couple days ago. Here’s hoping Billy is Feelin’ Alright again very soon.

Danny Joe Brown dropped in for a visit

Molly Hachet’s Danny Joe Brown paid a visit to the Outlaws dressing room backstage at the Omni in Atlanta sometime around 1980 or 1981 and chatted it up with Hughie Thomasson. I know the Johnny VanZant Band opened the show, because I’ve got JVZ pics on the same roll of film, but I’m not sure […]

I miss Arhooly, and P.B. Scott’s too

This is a local interest post for all my friends and neighbors around Hickory, NC. By the time I moved to Hickory in 1976, I had had enough of the rock ‘n roll lifestyle. But I knew a good band when I heard one. Arhooly was a good band. And P.B. Scott’s in Blowing Rock, […]

One for the Frankophiles… a portrait of Rock

I found this never before published shot of original Outlaws bassist, Frank O’Keefe, in recent scans I’ve been doing. This is from the day I spent with the band on a farm outside Athens, GA in 1975. The same day I shot the pic of Frank with the horse that everyone has always liked, and […]
