Default Post your early band pictures memory lane

My dad died a year ago and my mom is going to clean house and is throwing out a bunch of stuff this spring and I'm rescuing some early photos. This is a picture from the battle of the bands in 1980 ( I was 17 )looks like I have a white Afro .lol
We opened up our set with tie your mother down by queen and our sing even though he was a kid sounded just like Freddie mercury ...I think we won it on that song alone.

I'll have to really dig through a crapload of boxes to find band pics. As smart as I can be (At times), I didn't label them.

I have this blast-from-the-past pic when I was 17 at my girlfriends place. Wave Babies

Keith has got the hair going pretty good in this one perfect 80's quaff.
" Wave Babies and their lying on the sand" honeymoon suite. If you were playing that you were doing pretty good keith.

Very cool pictures indeed everyone. Great memories.

I actually keep in touch with the guys in the first photo. I also have recordings of both of these bands. The first one I was 18 and we played long progressive music, we wanted to be like Yes. The second band was a cover band and we did a lot of Steele Dan and such like. That was the night I met my wife, the Don Johnson jacket worked.
