PerSimmons Filk

 

BEFORE THERE WAS FILK...

Before I discovered Filk, before I even discovered SF Conventions, I was inflicting my questionable musical talents on hapless audiences in other venues.  Concerts, coffeehouses, hootenannys, shindigs, harmonic lobotomies--you name it.  The above photo was taken sometime around the mid to late 70's.  Because the photo is low-res and monochrome, you cannot see the blood pouring from the audience's ears.

UPDATE:  Apparently my Friends F.E. are unable to identify my B.F.E. image.  I'm the guy in the middle of the photo with the Ovation Acoustic/Electric 12-string guitar.  Really.  The tale grew with the telling...so did the author.

As can be seen below...

Some 35 years later...
