I was delighted to find your website this evening. I was even more delighted to find the Launchers. I was the keyboard player pictured in the photo on the website.
Do you know what happened to Dave Brown? I remember him as a super-talented musician.
The abover photo was probably taken in 1959. I joined the Launchers after I got my driver's license in 1958. The band auditioned me because the Wailers had released "Tall Cool One" and the Launchers needed a piano player to play that song. My friend Ed Bare asked me to audition and I got the job.
Thanks for compiling this website. It brings back great memories!
