That's as cool as it gets.

All original members? I envy that.

The drummer I worked with extensively in several bands in the 70s and 80s died in 2001. My best friend from childhood and long-time bandmate in high school bands died last week. We'd talked about getting one of those bands together again several years ago, but didn't act on it. Now those bands can never have a reunion.

Best of luck with the gig - and make sure you guys have a good time and appreciate each other.

I assume we can expect video?

That outdoor photo reminds me of the ones of Paul and John after meeting at the Woolton Fete. Cool beans, for sure.

Wild Thing, maybe even Psychotic Reaction. I say there should be at least one token Thomas Vox amp on the scene. But a tilt back Bandmaster was also totally badass back then.

Looks like TWO of 'em, and out front too.

Still got mine.

Help me out here.... what is keeping the heads on those bandmasters? Did someone repeal the law of gravity for a while back in the day?

They had chrome-plated steel ears that extended from under the head; the ears had notches in them. The notches fit over big bolts with knurled caps that screwed into receivers in the tops of the cabinet. When tightened, you could turn the amps upside down.

I always thought that they looked cooler to turn the speaker cabinet on the side and place the head on top of that. Put the controls up where you didn't have to bend over to adjust anything.

Not that I ever had one but it was nice to dream.

Ahh, now I get it! I've seen lots of one piece Fenders with tilt-back legs, but I guess I've never run across a 2pce variant.

Thanks
