The name of the band member of Them leaving the stag is Jim Armstrong. He showed me how to play some of their songs.

Thanks Bill for this website. I not only enjoyed playing music in the 60's but I get to enjoy hearing about it now that I am in my 60's. How fun is that?

Hi Bill, my dad was the drummer for a band that you featured in your book, named Crystal Garden. Just want to thank you for your time and energy in putting this book together. My dad was very happy when this came out, we unfortunatly lost him to cancer 2 years ago, but is nice to know that he is remembered for what he loved to do.

Bill, do you remember when a young photographer (me) and one of your waitresses (Sabrina) who was also a hairstylist and a model/my girlfriend went with you from Marina Del Rey to Newport Beach on your yacht? Remember you split your pants and borrowed a pair of mine? Pay me back you son of a gun! Just Kidding! Hey see my business at www.digipic.us. Greay times at Frenchy's from 1982 - 1985.

Thanks Mike Lusby --I just checked out your site www.southend-band.com ------GREAT! I used to work for H.A.R.D.-Hayward Recreation Dept--mid 60s to mid 70s ---and know many of the bands on that site. One band that really stands out in my mind was Pre-Dawn Left. Fantastic Band!! I was actually working high school dances and I could not sit still --------love their Soul!! And you guys played with Rejoice ??---Loved that band too --"Sunday Morning In Golden Gate Park"--right? Later I became a Mobile DJ for many years until just recently. I soon found out that bands don't care for mobile DJs much--LOL.

I have a poster/handbill that you may not have. I can email the image to you if you'd like. It was a May 17th concert in 1969 at The Alameda Fairgrounds that had The Eternal Flame, Rejoice, Womb, and Rest. My band, The Eternal Flame, played many times for Bill. We played another show a year later at the same venue with The People.

Anybody remember the dance Hall in Castro Valley off the Strobridge exit on 580 where McDonalds is today?? We used to dance to the Spyders there in the summer of 1964!! I mean GREAT stuff! Was that hall the Spanish Hall??--or what?? I used to work for H.A.R.D. from 1964-1975 ---saw many of these bands at Weekes Park, San Lorenzo Park, Chabot College at the battle of the Bands & other spots-- fun times! One of my favorite groups was PreDawn Left -----Solid Soul! And the Moat did a nice version of Evil Ways! I also loved the Gates of Eden!
