Brief History:
    I was only in this band as a stand-in for Bill.  I think he was really sick at the time.  The dates above cover only the time I was with them; they were together for a long time before and after I worked with them.  Thunder Blu would eventually evolve into Hot 'Lanta.  Steve Brookins would eventually go on to fame and fortune with 38 Special.  I haven't seen Bill in years, Dennis Lehto (see Hudson Fairfax) is playing in a blues band in central Florida, and I don't know what ever happened to Keith.

    The band probably had one, but I wasn't in it and never got a copy.
