Many thanks to Mike Craver for contributing most of the pics on this page.

"The one of Tommy was taken by me in the early 80's in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, I think."
"The group one was taken around l977/78, I believe.  It was taken at the Roxy Theatre in Greenville, NC.  I don't know who snapped it. 
left to right:  Jack Herrick, myself, Tommy Thompson, Jim Watson, Bill Hicks."
"America's premier 'whatzit band.'"
"The Ramblers ... are bawdy, bright, funny and establish instant rapport with their audience."
 Ed Davis in the Greensboro Daily News (11/17/78) found the quotes above and has some fine things to say himself.  What is a "whatzit?"Read the article.
