Do you remember Hans and Bodil?
... organ music, ... boys ball, ... the Hokie Pokie,
and "we'll all skate again and skate carefully please"?


Perhaps you remember seeing the Yardbirds? Members included Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. They Play a Live Show at the Battle of the Bands on 
December 11, 1965 at the Rock River Roller Palace

I saw the Yardbirds at the Rock River Roller Palace in Dec 65. They did two sets. Needless to say it was pretty cool. I snuck into the dressing room between sets and talked with the band. They were really nice to put up with a 14 year old kid like me. Jeff Beck even explained feedback to me! They were using the opening act's vox amps, except Beck, he had an AC30 vox with a blown up speaker. It was a great night.   Bun Carlos

... and skate carefully please!
