In the mid 90s, in my senior year of HS, I found my father's old plaid bellbottoms, and started to wear them. After, a Boy Scout trip to the UK, I got a plaid Scottish tam, and that was my look (got more bellbottoms at the thrift store), until my college gf disapproved.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/19 10:33pm still b/p:

I think my first were like flare jeans, acquired at the same time as my first three-stripe "track shoe" sneakers. 'Cause every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed...kid who looked like Ernie from My Three Sons.

didn't have any elephant bells but one, striped dark brown and light brown, was pretty wide. (also little league attire)

I wear a paisley shirt to work now and then. I refer to it as my "chili dog shirt," because I can spill shit on it and nobody will notice. I always get a comment about it.

My favorite version of "Hush" is the one by Somebody's Image with Russell Morris. It was a hit in Australia.

The Cherry Slush should've been bigger. This, (I Cannot Stop You) in my opinion their best song.

I think this was a pretty big hit in Chicago and theGreat Lakes Region
Avatar Wed. 6/19/19 10:43pm Erica:

My point exactly Larry. Many of those garage rock bands deserved more recognition than they had.

Back when I was a kid I witness one kid straight up knock another kid out with a brick (Holy shit) and then in 5th grade a kid hit another kid in the head with a baseball bat, which cause the gym teacher to flip the fuck out. Both times terrifying.

I was born w/o binocular vision, so, when my dad would pitch to me when I was 5, the ball kept hit my face due to my lack depth precision (my face looked like I was abused). I taught myself how to use both eyes consciously by the time I was 13, and automatically by the time I was 16. By junior high, I could field rather well, but was a mediocre batter.

This group was bankrolled by the glass industry to push back against the popularity of aluminum cans. I kid you not.

Okay here's mine: In the tenth grade me and this red haired kid named Donald had and argument in English class who was a better guitar player, Mark Farner or Jerry Garcia. It turned into a screaming match that I think I won just because I can yell louder that just about anybody. The whole class, including the teacher were very amused.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/19/19 11:28pm Funky16Corners:

That's a fight I would have watched/joined
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/19/19 11:29pm coelacanth∅:

i don't know what i'd do if i was a teacher and witnessed that, because my instant reaction would be to throw the perpetrator across the room.
- which the kid would deserve fully, but may not end well for me.

Jerry, no question.

He grabbed the kid and started dragging him away, then realized it was more important to administer first aid and call and ambulance. The kid with the bat had serious problems, and last I heard had been stabbed to death in the Phillipines whike in the Navy,

So the deal is, I was (is) a hired gun guitar player way back then, remember? Those times were great. I played for a few years with a big band, named after the person who formed it. Said person had an all star type of tour in honor of the Beatles for several years.

After a sound check, I went backstage for a frosty beverage. One of the several all stars was Mark Farner. I asked the roadie who had a foot on the cooler to move, so I can get the frosty beverage. We talked about the others who were playing, snd I eventually made the “three chord rock” joke about Grand Funk.

The “roadie” was Mark Farner.

I recall a day in high school just out of the blue when I proclaimed that Jerry Garcia was the greatest rock 'n' roll guitarist ever. I soon backed off. Howe? McGlaughlin? Etc.? Nowadays, many decades later, I wonder if I wasn't on to something at the time.

Ha ha! Carmicael, I did something equally stupid with a director. I needed a table to set up my gear, so I asked this kid to go get me a table....you know the rest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/19/19 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

Farner really has (and seemingly always has) gotten too much shit. yes it's simple music but for 3 guys (in the early days) they sure could fill the air with well-executed sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/19/19 11:40pm Funky16Corners:

Grand Funk were great. Not geniuses by any stretch, but solid, interesting rock music.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/19 11:40pm Erica:

1969 must've been a crazy year for music. Beyond trippy.
  Wed. 6/19/19 11:41pm Carmichael:

Yes, he sincerely introduced himself. My first words were “I’m sorry “. He laughed and said something to the effect of “that’s not the first time I’ve heard that, and certainly not the last”. He was very gracious.

I have done embarrassing things that I'm too embarrassed to post, nothing big though. Well this was an epic 2 hours. Until next time (that I tune in that is).

Thanks Larry for the insights. Nice talking with everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/19/19 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

you should be embarrassed to say that!
  Wed. 6/19/19 11:58pm Dean:

Doing stuff merely because it's selfish or angry doesn't mean it's stupid. Sometimes it's smart to express one's selfishness or anger or what have you. Sometimes, in fact, the stupid stuff we do is motivated by a bogus altruism. Or so I think.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/19 11:58pm Erica:

Would be easier to learn, grow and move on if those embarrassing memories didn't haunt us emotionally.

coel, I guess I am...

i suppose some people actually don't ever do anything embarrassing -if they were "raised" in a way that made them self-righteous about their every action.
