Quote from: alenhoff on March 19, 2016, 03:27:59 PMFor the past few years, I've been working with David Robertson ("OZDOC" on this forum) on a coffee table-style book about keyboard instruments from the 1950s through the mid-1980s. Rhodes, Wurlis, Hammonds, combo organs, Clavinets, Pianets, early synths and other classic instruments.To add to the vintage feel of the book, we'd like to include a collage of photos of bands from that era that used keyboards. I'm wondering whether some of you might be willing to search through old photo albums and send me some scans. I'm looking for photos that show you playing any keyboard instrument of 1950s through the mid-1980s. They can be on stage or practicing in your garage. (You get extra credit if you're wearing clothes you'd be embarrassed to wear today: Bell bottom pants, Spandex, Paul Revere and the Raiders-style Colonial uniforms, etc.)The only rule is that you must own the rights to the photos and be willing to grant us permission to publish them. (No photos taken by newspapers, for example, since it might be impossible for us to chase down permission to publish them.) I can't answer many questions about this project until it's closer to publication. But it will be a carefully researched, beautifully illustrated, large format book, and I think you would be pleased to have your band photo included. You can send your photos to me at alan.lenhoff AT GmailDOTcom.Thanks,Alan Lenhoff
