This was posted on Mark Zaputil’s Facebook page. It had to be early in my career with Silver Laughter. I do remember that shirt. It was a polyester “disco” shirt with a cowboy flavor, and I think it had the western pearl-like snaps for buttons. I can’t imagine wasting my stage outfits for a rehearsal (we only had so many, you know), so my guess is that is is an early job with the band.
However, I think later on I bought a drum stool so I could sit while playing. Mrs. Jepsen would be proud that I am not resting my wrists on the piano! But at that angle, what choice did I have??? The question of the day is, what song was I playing? It was too early for our Beatles Tribute as we had not created it yet. Oh, if only we had a song list from that period!
Mark says, “Mick Orton at the piano, I think this was at a gig? Maybe a dress rehearsal practice session, this would be late 74 or early 75, do not remember the location.”
