A few weeks ago Klaus Brunner sent me a little story and fotos.
One of his old school friends (now sitting in a wheel chair)
visited him and brought some old fotos of the guys from 1964 that were
back then in a group called "The Sky Rockets".
A young, 15 years old Herbert "The Cruncher" Hooke is also in the foto.
I have to ask them if I am allowed to upload the picture here.
Remember Gary Usher once had answered my letter given to him by John Blair - David Leaf but he wasn´t willing to share the old pictures of
"The Four Speeds" as I had asked him if he still has some shots.
Fortunately a little later Stephen J. McParland got acquainted with
Gary and he developed into a kind of personal chronologist of
Gary Usher and his musical life.
Folks nearly 40 years since this happened ... the fond memories still exists!!!

And continuing on the Beach Boys as well as Annette, check out this funny photo where she has taken over the studio controls. Note how Carl and Dennis doesn't seem to approve while Mike is doing his best to make them stop doing faces! Laughing

Yeah this photo was made during recording the Monkeys Uncle song at Goldstar Studios

That Monkey's Uncle song was horrible. Did she do another song with them for a movie? I remember seeing it in a theater when I was young. Maybe it was Monkey's Uncle.

Keep the pictures coming. Especially the ones with the beach bunnies!

All opinions expressed by this poster are well thought out and based on actual experience and/or scientific experimentation, except for those which are knee-jerk reactions or good sounding fantasies.

As a late addition to the discussion about Harmony Park earlier in the thread and a hint to everyone asking themselves how big this ballroom acutally was, here is another shot from the stage into the room:

She is a big reason I got into surf! That's why I named my surf green Strat "Annette"

How about the iconic Fender Jaguar ads from the 1960's. Like these:

Visit surf_music_is_not_dead on Instagram and find out what is spinning!

At first glance I thought the guy in the "You won't part with yours either" ad was actor Don Stroud who was a surfer and drummer. He actually played drums in The Buddy Holly Story in which Gary Busey played the title role. Great pic by the way.

Yeah there was a thread on here about that Fender advert somewhere, I guess he jumped on a board for real, I always thought it was staged or photo shopped, I think Fender got the guitar back too. I wonder where it is now?

Speaking of Movie Trivia Cool I was a big fan of Janos Prohaska who played many animal parts in films and TV shows I watched as a kid.

My favorite Surf movie so far is this one below, I have most of them. The guy in the monkey suit called Clyde was the same man that played many Star Trek costume scenes like the Gorgon etc...he played Cookie the Bear on the Andy Williams show much later too, He died in a plane crash in 74 not far from his house ironically. He used the same suit on The Lucy Show too about 3 years later.

His name is Jon Martin and there was a thread on him and more on the story of the photo shoot here in case anyone missed it:

Also the girl in the beach photo is named Edie Carhart. She wrote in when we were discussing old surf guitar ads some years ago.

A couple of neat SG101 moments...

Better late than never? Saw the earlier posts about hearses and wanted to show these two that were for sale around Rhode Island last year. Too much for me but someone got lucky.

I don't know, if it is "inspiring", but it is definitely one of the weirder pictures I have seen of the Astronauts. I think it would fit nicely with the final scenes from "2001: A Space Odyssey"...

The caption from gettyimages reads:

What the heck? What song could they even be miming with a harp and violin?

They have a bunch of 'orchestrated'
Maybe one of those??
Might be a vocal too. Or were the mic's set to speak to the 'crowd'?
Look at the height of the tom positioning on the Premier —
