A Band Poster from a Black Oak Arkansas group triggers good memories and is a sure thing for Divine Intervention or moments of extreme coincidence for me. I have come close to all but The California Jean Joint.
Let’s see if I can explain. I photographed Black Oak Arkansas when I was a Junior or Senior in High School. Years later Black Oak Arkansas and Atlantic Records AJ Deprimo picked a few of my photos for a BOA webisode. I got my name on a Rock and Roll Album!
Come back because there is more.
Somewhere between High School and College I photographed The James Gang with Tommy Bowlin before his Deep Purple gig.
I have been to Erie Pennsylvania where one of the greatest least known Frisbee players lives, Lee Sedgewick. Years later at an Amusement Park in Conneaut Lake Park Pennsylvania where I was paid to Play Frisbee for two summers , Rick Ploski gave me a backstage Pass to a Peter Frampton Concert.
On this ticket is a band that @Bill Scott turned us all on to from a Club in Concord called SGT. Peppers from 1979ish Called Razz Ma Tazz. Bill is still in touch with a member of the band. The band member is now a Doctor. I have a few slides from a Razz Ma Tazz show at Peppers.
Razz Ma Tazz had smoke, Neon lights and a choreographed show. I can’t remember if it was Razz Ma Taz or RazzMaTazz.
I love this stuff!
This brings Rich Bartle to mind and how cool it would be to watch his life as a promoter. Rich just happens to be a World Class World Champion Freestyle Disc Player. This is beyond this thread but I can’t help but mention that Rich mentioned our friend @Bill Scott’s band when he was doing a video. The video showed gold albums and guitars from bands he hosted. And he built a stage for Bill Scott’s band when Angelina Jolie hosted Bill’s band for Billy Bob Thornton’s Birthday party. Billy got flown out to LA for a surprise party and met people like Tom Petty! Talk about runnin’ down a dream!
