As put together by my beautiful wife…

Chris Hanzsek’s present to me upon completion of a 2007 Mt. Index hike.

First Young Fresh Fellows club gig poster.  (The inside joke is that everytime I’d mention Uno, my wife would say, “Isn’t that the Popllama guy?”)

 The world’s greatest rock n roll band.

The Cokes!

Tad’s Dead Juniper Bush

Posted: November 11, 2011 in Band Shots, etc.

(This bush–photographed by me in Seattle’s University District in 2007–died in 1988, and relates to a story involving members of TAD, Mudhoney, and a street gang.  More to follow…of course this begs the question: why was it still there?)

(I look like shit, but at least Kevin looks good…note Kevin’s buddy peeking out from behind him. He told me some good “meeting James Brown” stories.)
