The first band I was in was called The Satellites. But the best high school band I was in was called...are you ready?...The Dirty Tee Shirts.
We had been playing at some local parties and dances and didn't have a name. Upon coming home from a vacation to Gatlinburg Tennessee our drummer Stew Williams and his mother brought us all grey shirts that said Dirty Tee Shirt on the front. So that was the name that stuck.
The Dirty Tee Shirts were made up of myself on lead guitar, Stew Williams on drums, Dave Kohl on rhythm guitar. Doug Abbott was our first bass player. But Doug was a very good bassist and went to play in another band. Our next bass player was Lyn Percival. Dave and I sang, however our designated lead singer was Bill Hesch.
