FUNNY PICS

Just to prove I have a sense of humour, this is quite possibly the all time worst picture EVER taken of ANYONE.

  ca. 198x?

  An early career highlight.  What's the old show biz saying? "So long as they spell my name right"?

 

This isn't really funny. In fact, it's quite nice. This is a lovely note I got from Tony Mottola. My teacher and friend Gene Bertoncini had suggested I send him a copy of my CD because Tony collects different version of the tune "Body and Soul". What a thrill to get this in the mail!!

An early "publicity" shot of SLOWBURN when we wanted to be pop starts.
We weren't very good at looking tough.  I wasn't very good at writing pop tunes, either.
Me, Mark Banfitch, Marty Rizek, and Donna Tucker (vocals).

 

This IS a funny picture. This is my cat, Mr. Kitty, in what we have taken to calling "Kitty Cat Full Lotus Position".
I don't think any other cat can quite manage this. Quite talented, our Mr. Kitty!

"Tour" poster for my first "professional" (ie. paying) gig.  The year?  1979.  That may be why I have a soft spot in my heart for the Smashing Pumpkins song "1979".

 

Me, Vinny Lobritto (dr), Steve Lobritto (gtr, now a doctor), Rob Begley (no, not Robert Plant, vocals) and Lance Sulton (bass).
