I wonder if Margaret and/or Ike had a hand in the hairdos in this photo. In fact, a lot of their hairdos. I know they could not have gone everywhere with EBs but I am sure they did attend a lot of their shows and might have been in their dressing rooms (that's probably a joke--I don't think entertai...

More from 1965, Amsterdam, with members of The Scorpions.
Marion
Are these members from a different Scorpion band other than "Wind of Change" and "Rock You Like A Hurricane" Scorpions? The band has been going forever.

lol Okay, guys, what happened here? I have this photo in files too. It is good for a chuckle or two. Phil: Did I hear what I thought I heard coming from the direction of the guitars that are lined up over there? Don: Yeah, I think I heard one that was more than slightly out of tune.

The one set of photos that I do not care for Phil's hair. Don's is not as bad but he had the "eraser head" do in another photo and video. haha
All in all they had very few bad hair days, most were hair every guy would want hair like the Everly's days.

I envision their modeling these outfits (but Don should be wearing the coat/jacket; it looks like he is not wearing it here) for GQ Magazine, which is a man's magazine. I noticed GQ Magazine's first issue was in 1957.

Wish he would have played more electric guitar...this electric guitar. Wonder which model this one was? Was it red? I have read so many comments here and there about the red Gibson guitars with the Mickey Mouse shape and fantastic sounds coming from those.

A lot of the story in the above link about Terry Slater is covered also in the Forum thread, Everly Brothers' Band Members. Mary found info about Terry Slater in Everlypedia (I think it was Everlypedia) and Everlypedia said "a-ha was presented with a set of guitar." I assume two guitars.

Glen played a lot of sessions with the Everly Brothers. He's a very good guitarist too. This era in rock & roll had very good guitarists in my opinion. Some are still rocking their guitars. Age has not stopped them at all.

Are the throw-away cameras still made? That would be the only way you might be able to sneak a camera for some shows now. But if you have to use those ticky-tacky clear plastic purses to carry your valuables forget getting the latest greatest handbag to take to the show.
