Question for Vic Moreno (as I know he reads this site):

Why did you look so much more conservative (short hair etc) compared to all the other guys on the folder cover?

Lord Darth Sidious said...

i have always thought Mr. Vic was totally hip/cool/with it in his own personable way, notwithstanding outward appearances. never made that judgment back then, and still don't.

ah, hair again, huh -- will it ever end??? methinks it's time for this One to listen for a couple of spins of the Cowsills 1969 single "HAIR"!

Lord Darth Sidious said...

BETTER YET, IT WOULD BE BETTER
for this One to give a listen to
a fantastic cut from the Mothers Of Invention 1968 LP "We're Only In It For The Money", the song in particular titled "Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance".
these lyrics are as relevant today as when Frank Zappa first wrote them 42 years ago:

"There will come a time when everybody
Who is lonely will be free . . .
TO SING & DANCE & LOVE
There will come a time when every evil
That we know will be an evil . . .
THAT WE CAN RISE ABOVE

Who cares if hair is long or short
Or sprayed or partly grayed . . .
WE KNOW THAT HAIR AIN'T WHERE IT'S AT

(there will come a time when you won't even be ashamed if you are fat!)

There will come a time when everybody
Who is lonely will be free . . .
TO SING & DANCE & LOVE (dance and love)

There will come a time when every evil
That we know will be an evil . . .
THAT WE CAN RISE ABOVE (rise above)

Who cares if you're so poor you can't afford
To buy a pair of Mod A Go-Go stretch-elastic pants . . .
THERE WILL COME A TIME WHEN YOU CAN EVEN
TAKE YOUR CLOTHES OFF WHEN YOU DANCE."

I remember having that photo taken.
Al Anthony sent me to a photo guy
in Riverside and that's what he came up
with. You'd think it was taken with
a simple camera.

I had just gotten out of the military
5 months earlier. Is that a good reason?
I didn't fit the long-hair mold of
the others at the time. But that was
their gig and I was there as I was then
and now--with less hair now.
Thanks for asking.

yes, Sir, "The Nacho" is still one of the nicest gentlemen from the Tiger crew of the 1970's, hair or no hair, long or the short it...

Lord Darth Sidious said...

BTW to VIC MORENO:
that "photo guy in Riverside" must have been the same outfit which produced a black & white series (with the background high-lighting) of the KF jocks during your period there... this One recalls large quantities printed of that series (for all the Tiger crew) being given way in sets for contests, public appearances, and sales contact presentations.

I just "borrowed" the pic I had taken at K/men, however, it had to have my head cut out and seperated from my body (but it didn't hurt a bit...)
