Remember the movie American Pie and the famous "One time at band camp" line?
The band camp in that movie was based on the band camp you see in this picture -- Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in West Michigan.
And the cool dude showing off his pecs is...drum roll... me! Not sure of the year, but it was early 80's, and time at Blue Lake with my buddies Brett (middle) and Scott (glasses/left) are some of the best memories of my life.
Don't know if it made me a better musician, but I remember all the fun I had at that camp like it was yesterday.
By the way, the guy on the left, Scott (the guy who sent me this picture), is still feeling the music today. He has been around the world on Bob Dylan's tour running Bob's audio mixer. In fact, they are heading out on tour once again this fall.
So... on this TBT... we say -- One time, at band camp...
