Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
Yeah, I'd forgotten about "Fastblind," but the "Blind Erik Flatpick" tag was hung on me by Ruthann Friedman, probably because I was and am a fingerpicker. Herb Jaeger? Glad he's still with us. How 'bout Mike Heintz, Tom Meisenheimer, Jon Toly (his sister Signe was the first girlsinger with the Airplane, replaced by Grace Slick), all of whom used to play together under various noms du stage, many times at the Zodiac on Fillmore St. The Drinking Gourd, eh? Right next to Stu Goldberg's Marina Music. ("When you need a guitar see Smilin' Stu--he gives credit where credit is due." My first jingle.) Used to teach guitar there with Sam Andrew, Eddie Ellison, and for a very brief time Elmer Snowden(!).
