Played in the fall so that would be the ‘71 team but graduated in 1972
I used to carry an SLR around with me for a while, until its seals finally started deteriorating and the body started leaking light. Some moisture got inside of my zoom telephoto. That killed my photog momo for a while, and I began using cheap waterproof disposables for my fishing shots.
I picked up a splash-proof digital point-and-shoot for a discount after it's rapidly aging tech started fading into a vanishing point in the rear view mirror, and it still takes OK pics, but I don't carry it with me much, and now I'm down to just taking snapshots with my iphone 5s.
But dang you, Skip, you got me digging around in old photo albums and dredging up a lot of old memories....drifting off...and I still haven't found the photo that I was searching for.
Van Halen was in the works about that time, locally?
Ha... funny you ask
My neighbor and bestie was Mark Stone original bassist for the band Mammoth then onto VanHalen
We both graduated in ‘72
I was one of the first groupies
Knew their old man too
He drove the van
Me on the left Mark Stone on the right
The Van Halen van? Wow! Truly a major innovational force, right there, in VH. Early stuff was so good!
Bet that was amazing! I went to HS on the coast with a future rock n' roll hall of famer and a couple other guys who still have a music career, they still are alive, the HOF-er is not..
yeah. 2/2 at state after we were blown out for the last game....no pressure, no one cared at that point..I was a rarely used, bench rat, I was just getting ready for track anyway : )
I played for years against Colin Cowherd from Ocosta (Westport/Grayland) class 1982 as well-he of Fox Sports, now. He was a decent shooter.
Those eyebrows are killing me and that hair!You kind of look like Leslie West.I only wish there was a picture of you with the pink satin shirt and the white 'soul brother' shoes.Ah,the memories.I recall the Boones Farm and Annie Green Springs too along with the cheap Mexican dirt weed.
My BF and his friend ran the sound company that did the PA when VH played the roller skating rink at Jantzen Beach in Portland,OR.
They killed it right?
They were still clearly Van Who? at that point,but by all accounts,they did kill it.I was not in attendance for reasons that are lost to the fog of memory.
There you are @Gyrfalcon2015 !
Dang. I temporarily deactivated my Facebook account and that’s where the good old photos are. I would love to see folks high school photos!
Yes! The eyebrows remind me of Jerry Garcia!
