The Strangers at American Lake - Lyle, Pat and Alan

Evolving from the WIld Vibrations, The Strangers did covers of British Invasion stuff.  We played at a lot of wild frat parties at UPS.  The Strangers incorporated Alan Winslow (later of Shiloh) on lead guitar and vocals, Mark Stubbs on vocals, Cordell Covert on rhythm and vocals, Tommy Thompson on 12 string rhythm, Pat Bohle (Sky Boys) on drums. Don was a Clover Park 1964 alumni.

The Strangers started in about the fall of 1964 and played until late 1966.  When I left to go to war in 1966, The Strangers evolved into The Mersey Six and I trained a new bass player to take my spot.  We had some great times together.

I am still playing my bass and electric guitars here in Florida and  working as a nuclear engineer.
