Doc Stanley who was in Chicago in the early 60's. Did a dynamite fingerpicked version of "Deep Elem Blues" on his old regularly fretted and low strung Dobro? Doc, last I heard you were incarcerated...
Fred Geis--last heard that you were rooming with Richard Harding, the 60s % 70's owner of Poor Richard's in Chicago. Fred was originally from Sacramento. Wrote "Goin' Home" (made a hit by Kinston Trio--was #1 for a week before it was noticed that the tune was taken from an aria in Gounod's FAUST. Also wrote "Lament For Brendan Behan" that was recorded by the Clancy's & Tommy Makem---and many others.
Fred Neil---in Florida---great voice.
Ron Buffington--in Chicago in the mid & early 60's. Was first guitar player for Bonny Koloc there.
Tom Meisenheimer---played banjo in Chicago in 60s.
Roger Luzwick---artist (painter) and guitar picker in Chicago in early 60s.
Mark Dorinson---At the University of Chicago in the early 60s---picked grand guitar.
Mike Slosson---in Chicago with Roger & Tom. Hung at the Erectheon coffeehouse on Sedgwick St. in Old Town.
Lorraine Blue---owner of MOOTHER BLUES--an early folk club where George Carlin & Bill Cosby opened for folksingers in the mid 60s.
Sarah Stewart a waitress at the No Exit (Chicago) in the 60s---from Spooner, Wisconsin originally. We shared the same Birthday...
...and so many waitresses ALL OVER---Where are ya now? Especially that great gal who was a waitress at THE FICKLE PICKLE COFFEEHOUSE in Chi. on Rush Street who said, one sad day, "Boy, would I like to ball a Beatle!" I knew, then, that particular incarnation of the folk scene was OVER. After that, it seemed the drummers got all the dates. The drummers even infiltrated the Grand Ole Opry after that!
