BLUE HIPPOS Car Club, Minneapolis, 1960s

3 Nov

Courtesy of member Froggy, currently residing in Bayport. Member jackets were nylon, eventually upgraded to leather (natch). Froggy has a funny story of The Blue Hippos bumping Mick Jagger to the ground at Excelsior’s Reggies Danceland, at The Rolling Stones’ third-ever American show. Sorry, Mick! There were The Baldies, The Greasers, and The Blue Hippos!

Wow! More stuff coming soon.

Brad Johnson, ex-guitarist in Impaler and Idol Threat, remembers seeing Whalebone at The Ramsey County Fair in the early 1970s. It blew his mind.

Mike has also played with Son Seals, Chris Duarte, James Solberg, Walter Trout, Jesse Johnson, Ragges, and currently plays with Willie Murphy when he gigs with a band.

Thanks to Mike for the cool stuff.

Michael Yonkers’ programs from 1970s shows

24 Feb

Michael Yonkers printed up programs for his shows, and I got ahold of some of them recently. The only other band that I know that did xerox programs like this is another favorite band- Plasticland.

Thanks to Michael for allowing me to put these up for all of you to see.
