Several Really Early Pictures of Silver Laughter

Kim and Steve

Kim and Steve

This morning I decided to combine several photos from the “Carl Collection” in a folder that he called “SL before Mick”. The first is of founding members, Kim Ludtke on drums and Steve Elliott on bass. Could this be the famous fraternity party they used to talk about?

Carl Frisch

Second is sound and light man, Carl Frisch at his board. I don’t remember how much of this was for the sound and how much was for controlling the lights. But I do think Carl actually made some of the equipment himself. He was a “Radio Shack” kind of kid.

Jon with Les Paul

Lastly is a photo of Jon wailing away on his black Les Paul. I am not sure who is in the foreground on the left side.
