    That's me on the drums. I wasn't playing guitar back then; didn't pick one up till many years later. We couldn't find a bass player so my cousin (with the SG) went and bought one about a week later. My other cousin, on the left, is playing a right handed guitar ala Jimi-style. It was a Hofner that he picked up in Germany when he was in the Army. *edit- he's playing his Gretsch not the mentioned Hofner.

    1973, at East Gate Junior High.

    I was 14, and the guitar was borrowed from a girl who lived around the corner from me.
    Her name was Dallas.

    :)

    It looks more like a Gretsch Corvette to me.

    This is one of me with an Epiphone Coronet at a High School dance in 1972. I sure miss that guitar. (S/N 30603) Back then, I had hair. Someone said I looked like Curt Cobain.

    This one was taken around 1975. You can barely make out my 1970 blonde tele and my blonde Bandmaster is behind me.

    Do I have to single-handedly represent the ’80s?

    Oh, alright then...

    Folks didn't take as many photos then as they do now. I think the youngest shot I have of me with a guitar is from my early twenties.

    If someone had a picture of me with guitar as a teen, I'd love to see it!

    That Velvet Flared suit won you best pic in this thread. It looked wild.:)
    Only way it could be beaten is if you were standing in a wide stance in that suit and holding a tele while doing a windmill with your picking hand.

    BB02CDDF-36ED-4F05-BDE3-9F47966B3B47.jpeg From my high school yearbook. I was in the jazz-rock ensemble. Sold a late 60s black Tele for $190 so I could buy this Iceman. This is late ‘79 or early ‘80.
