A younger and cuter self hangs with James Brown ("Son, I had to get my rhythm thing together before I could get my other thing happening."), and Arhtur Baker backstage at the Hotel Bradford Ballroom (now the Roxy)in 1977. Arthur and I worked together at Discount Records in Downtown Boston. Before going on to become a successful producer (Springsteen, Afrika Bambatta), Arthur coproduced the first Marshalls recordings with Andy Paley. Mr. Brown went on to many fruther exploits as well.

Backstage at the glorious Rat circa 1987 after playing (and sweating) with "Bary Marshall and the Rockin' Robins" for Rick James. He wanted to sign me for a minute. With my sister Ellie and what's his name. Thanks to drummer extrordinaire Tim Jackson and the Young Rationals for setting up the gig on short notice.

The Marshalls performing at Dreamwold in Scituate, MA - 1975 or 76. Kenny Marshall on bass, Ellie singing (I don’t think she was officially in the band until later-still in high school), me on drums, Kevin on guitar, and the dazzling if enigmatic Eric Rosenfeld (he was in the Sidewinders) on guitar.

The Marshalls posing @ Dreamwold, same stage, different gig. At least we weren’t sucking in the cheeks. Dreamwold was turn of the century robber baron"s (Tom Lawson - the "Copper King") estate with an awesome ballroom. I started playing there in 1967 with the Fugitives.

[img src=]1400With LaVern and Chuck Berry
With LaVern and Chuck Berry at the Newport Festival in 1996. Great gig. Chuck showed up early to see us and was a sweetheart. I think he and LaVern had something going in the fifties. We hung for the afternoon and then I followed Chuck out of the place in his rented Caddy at about 90 MPH!

An in-store at Tower on Sunset - '96 with LaVern and Mrs. M. Notice my outfit’s color coordination with LaVern’s. Must have been a coincidence.
