1960's Lafayette garage bands

Here are some of the garage band photos that Curtis sent. They're from the 1967-69 Lafayette High yearbooks. The Gentrys were from Memphis. Thomas Edison's Electric Light Bulb Band featured Richard Staggs, who later was in Richard Orange and the Eggmen, and Kim Foreman, who was later in Zuider Zee. The Sussex 6 had Keith Thibodeaux who was Little Ricky on I Love Lucy. He was later in Little David and the Giants, and is now a born again Christian.

The Gentrys 1968 @ Lafayette High. Nice pants.
