Terry Gunter  d:  July 2013

Most of the members of The Talismen were from Franklin Pierce High School in Tacoma, except for Terry, who was a graduate of Wilson High School.  We were blown away by Terry's skill with the twelve-string and it caused us to consider a move from a Wailers/Sonics approach to a more Byrds style.
