Attended a great event today, a book signing for the 3rd edition of Bruce Tahsler's "The San Francisco East Bay 60's Scene Then And Now-Garage Bands and More," which features interviews with members of Cold Blood, Sly and the Family Stone, Tower of Power, Beau Brummels, and Peter Wheat and the Breadmen (to name but a few), all of whom played at "Teens N Twenties" concerts produced by Bill Quarry. Like the first two editions, this one is also going into the collection of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

I got my copy signed by Quarry and Tahsler, as well as Don Ryder (he did many of the posters for Quarry's shows), Sal Valentino of Beau Brummels, Rick Stevens of Tower of Power (his inscription reads "Still a Young Fossil," which is, of course, a play on the Tower of Power hit that he sang, "You're Still a Young Man" on the album "Bump City"), Rodger Collins, Lydia Pense of Cold Blood (saw that band a bunch of times, including New Year's Eve 1970/71 at the Fillmore West), and Bob Birdwell of the Tarantels before he joined Peter Wheat.

Here's a link to an article I wrote a couple of years ago about Quarry and the East Bay music scene:
