Photo from the past.....
Lonely Mountain, my first rock band. Promo photo, circa 1971:
(Standing, L to R) - Denis DeBoer, lead vocals and keyboard; B. Belet (yes, that's me!), bass and vocals.
(Kneeling, L to R) - Steve Flaig, drums; Bruce Neubert, guitar.
A memory note -- These gentlemen were (and still are, I presume) top-notch musicians. Denis had front-man charisma and tore up the Hammond B3 organ. Bruce was a magician on guitar - he could play any style of the day, and his solos were brilliant. To this day, Steve is the finest rock drummer I have worked with.
A great deal of my musical aesthetic was formed while performing as a part of Lonely Mountain, and finding this photo on the web was a moment of fond nostalgia.
