1968 - concert in the garage! 
It was only a year or two later that the garage band was so loud we often had the cops show up to shut us down!

1968 - My first real guitar (that's me on the right).
The brand was aptly named "Recco" (wreck-o). $24.95 at Musicland. A real finger-bleed special! (Left) With my cousin, Barry, in Grandma's front yard. Bloomington, Indiana.
