Bob Jones, who most kindly submitted these scans, tells us:
"Hi Roger: The photos were taken back in the mid to late
50's. They are from 8x10" color transparencies, and used in drum kit
advertisements, and also on a record album cover. I worked 10 weeks in
Wildwood, NJ at a place called the Mardi Gras, owned by Ben Martin, and run by
his hapless son, "Chubby". I worked with a group that opened for Buddy, Ola
Hanson, Kenny Drew, Phil Leshin, and Sonny Criss, and Buddy would ask me to
sit in for him, when he wanted to stand up and sing. You certainly can use the
scans, and let me know if I can help you in any way.
Thank you, Bob! More from Bob below!!
Roger Garza e-mailed me and said he had some
pictures for us. In his letter (9/28/98) with the pix he writes:
" Roger, These are photos I took of Buddy
and his band in St. Louis in 1983, I think! Buddy has always been my hero. I
play drums and have my own band "The Roadrunners". We play Country, Rock and
Oldies music. You have my permission to print any photo. Also sending a photo
of me. You have a great website. Thanks.
Thank you, Roger!
Bob Jones mailed me again on Dec 10, 1998 with
these scans! Here's his story about these pictures:
"One shot is one of the advertisements made
from one of the color shots that I gave you. Another is a picture that I took,
and that Ludwig used for ad ad. Buddy signed the ad to me for "sitting in".
The other he just signed. More later"
I can't wait, Bob!
...didn't have to wait too long: Bob sent these
pics as a Christmas gift 1998!
