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.
Thanks for the plug Mike! Great news about SL in the Iowa Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, I hope to be able to attend this.
Just noticed Mick, well it was Mike when were band mates. I think you came on board in December of 74 ? My membership was May of 74 to July of 75.
