Throw Back Thursday - Early 1981
I've probably posted this one to the blog before. But, if so, it was a while ago. So here goes. This is from my college days, the apartment I lived in for Junior / Senior year. I'm pretty certain this was summer of '81... Besides a very young me, and my Guild Jetstar bass, there's some fun stuff in the background.
No clue why I'm wearing a button down shirt, rather than a polo or tee. Maybe I was late doing laundry?
You can't really tell, but the shelves behand me are typical college chic: cinderblock and pine boards. Note the 9" black-and-white TV (directly behind my head), with the "rabbit-ear" antenna just to the right. Working down, 2 shelves of record albums (12" Vinyl). Below those, cassette tapes!
I still have that bass, although it has been disassembled for a long while. Still have that leather strap, too. And I still have all the records...
