An old friend came to hear me play last weekend and brought this picture along. ...37 years ago! That me playing my white 1978 D-10 Emmons. When this picture was taken I was playing in house bands 7 nights a week. It must have been a rough week because I look like I haven't slept in three days!

Hi Craig, It probably was... but I have no recollection of the gig at all! Laughing I do remember the band but I can't remember this gig. The festival is still going strong. I played at it about six years ago with another band. That one I Do remember.

Doug, great head of hair in those days. It's fun to look back on our youth.

Hi Doug, I`ll bet you can`t tell me when was the first time I saw you play. It was when Buddy Emmons performed at Luca Music in Providence. That was also in 1982 on March 13th.

Manny, I remember that day! I went there to hear Buddy play, and he was running late because his plane had been diverted. So local players were filling in until Buddy arrived. Someone requested that I play and Scotty called me up! I played a few tunes on Scotty’s PSG but I had no chord charts for the band and I didn’t know any of the players in the band! Somehow I was able to get through it without making a fool of myself! 😎

Steven, I played that Emmons for 25 years. I had Tommy Cass rebuild it back around 1990. He also changed the formica to black... we all know that black sounds better! I sold the guitar around 2004 and went to a S-10 push pull, rosewood.

Great pic! 1982 seams like yesterday to me........sigh...I would have been just getting up from my college day nap so I could get ready to go to the dance hall.

What started the trend with the cowboy hats that looked like a pigeon had flown into the front of it. It was about the Urban Cowboy time frame.
