A SUPER HUGE ROCK AND ROLE CALL. Help me find these rockers!

Like my last blog entry, this one will hopefully jog some memories for a few of you.  I am looking for these individuals as I would like to interview them for this rapidly expanding project.  In my research, have covered a vast swath of the 1960s in which have compiled some incredible information. With all of this being said here is my Rock and Roll Call to Arms.  Unlike the last blog entry, this is a greatly expanded the list and names.  Help me get in touch with these people,  as it is their story to tell and I only wish to be the curator of their history.   HELP ME FIND THESE LOCAL LEGENDS!

If you know any of the above mentioned people please let them know of the work I am doing.  Let them know that I would love to speak to them and get their recollections down on paper.  What information I have gathered so far is quite amazing.  I have set up a new email address that is dedicated strictly to this project and I can be contacted here at any time.  Check it out......
 I appreciate all the interest and support in this project!

Also special thanks to Dr. Robert Thurman, Bob Kalal, and Bill Uhlig who have lent their support to this venture.  It should be noted that Dr. Thurman is an author and his work can be found at Amazon. 

Support an artist who continues to evolve and create.  As this project increases in scope I will continue to help spread the word about the activities of our local scene heroes both past and present.
