First of all a disclaimer: Deniz Tek is my all-time Rock n Roll Hero. No shit: fighter pilot, surgeon, Rock n Roll Star. Here is video of him performing with local legends The Spectors- I was the camera man.
Deniz came to town to deal with some personal matters & decided to stop by legendary record store Oar Folkjokeopus. The kind staff there inform him of a band with a sympathetic ear for Deniz’ legacy, so he decides to do a song with The Spectors at The Uptown Bar. I was on a job working construction when I got a beep on my beeper (remember those?) abut the upcoming evening’s performance. Luckily, right before The Spectors hit the stage, guitarist Dan Boardman handed me his video camera, so I got to do the filming on the YouTube clip. The live photos were taken by Dan Miggler. Here’s Deniz onstage & posing with some of my buddies afterward. Thanks to Dan for allowing me to put these up.
The Deniz Tek Group played The 400 Bar a couple years later, and Deniz Took me to Flying Cloud Airport to see one of the planes he was flying around. I took the plane photo.
