Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.
We played in and through the 60's - and survived continuing to pick, strum and compose our way through life.

As a "survivor", the name of this particular group recently became a little more meaningful to me ... the lead singer and bassist from my high school group "The Tydes" passed away from a heart attack at what I consider the tender young age of 61. Rip Jimmy Hightower ... :-(
Hi, I really don't know for sure but the shape of that headstock reminds me of a "Reliance" Archtop that I once had - they were made in very small quantities in Toronto.
Headstock makes me think Ovation ...
Can anyone identify the guitar that John Herald is playing in this photo (from the cover of Dian & The Greenbriar Boys)
We all live in different places now too so I don't know if the odds are real good for getting us together. Maybe a one time deal in our hometown.
Wow that's quite a sad story about the lead guitar player but it's good that you have kept in touch with him. Several years ago I got back together with the people from that band and we spent some time reminiscing and playing together but I haven't seen them since then (we all live in different places) but maybe you've inspired me to try to do something about that. Too bad you lost the recordings-they would be great fun to listen to now!!!
Thanks for looking at my photos. Yes I still to this day jam once a week with the lead guitar player. We tried forming another band but it fell apart. He was a victim of the times and wound up becoming a heroin addict and though he has been clean for years he's burnt out. When we play he has a very tough time keeping up and loses his place easily while playing.
The other two I've lost complete touch with. I was corresponding with the drummer for a while about 15 years ago but he changed his email and didn't notify me.
I was fortunate to have had those photos. The Polaroids were taken by my wife (we were high school sweethearts) and the others I can't remember who took but I somehow wound up with them, Someone asked if I had any recordings and I did at one point in time but lost them in one of the many moves I've made since then.
Too bad you don't have photos of your band. Are you in touch with any of your old band mates?
Those are great old (but not too old) pictures!!! Do you still have contact with any of those guys??? I played in a band around that time too but don't think I actually have any pictures. Now I wish I did. Thanks for sharing!!!
