The Royal Tones from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, started in 1960.  Players were: Jim Cole, drums and vocals; Bob Osbourne, lead guitar;  and John McCarthy, rhythm guitar.  They later and later changed to:  Jim Cole, bass and vocals; Serge Boilly, drums and Jack Boilly on lead guitar.

This band was significant to me in that I got fired as the drummer (I stunk) but was rehired six months later as the bass player... go figure.... that's rock n roll.
