    Great post! Is the Bob Mosley in #5 the guy from Moby Grape? I know they started in '66, and the Grape BM was in several groups before MG.

  4. Frank Smith or Rank Frank as his friends called him was a true talent. He played funky and chunky rhythm, and good lead too, He was a gas to hang out and play with. I played many club dates with him, his Fender Telecaster had a Humbucking pickup and a sustain switch built in to the guitar. Jeff Beck dug Frank and looked him up when he was in the Bay Area. Unfortunately, Frank was assassinated in his hotel room at the Howard Johnson's motel in Mill Valley in the 70's. He left behind many friends.
