I didn’t really get to know him very well, but he is a part of the Silver Laughter history. Mark Zaputil was the lead guitarist of our four piece band when I joined them.
Mark seemed to be a really quiet guy, but he appears to have come out of his shell after leaving Silver Laughter. I don’t think he enjoyed traveling very much.
The good news is he is still playing music in the Quad Cities and is teaching guitar. He has his own website called “Zap” Music which may be seen at http://www.zapltdmusic.com.
