Frank's Early Pictures - May 19, 2006

I've I've been trying to get Frank Ace to let us put some of his old pictures on the web site.The garage band, "The Continentals", With Victor Garcia on drums, and what was the piano players name????
Or The Frank Ace Combo in the 60's & 70's, and The Frank Ace Trio in the 70"s. With Oddie Jones on drums, and James Gates on bass, and Frank Ace on guitar.
There was such great musicians Like Bass player Thomas Douglas Price, and Drummer William (Billy) Lentz, who Verlon Musgrove (club owner) called "Billy Beaver".... I don't know why…...:-)Tenor Sax player Matthew (Bird) Washington, Frank Ace on guitar, they recorded KIRK and LADY MARGARET on the HYDRA label, a 45" single.
Whatever happened to Jerry Bruce Pickiney who was the greatest drummer in the world, and bass guitarist "Sweet Ike" Issac Mcquen from Eloy, Arizona....:-) Ha! Frank and Ike usta pick cotton together...:-) that's right Frank Ace is from Eloy Arizona on I-10 between Phoenix and Tucson Arizona. That's what he told me anyway...:-)
What about Dewey Parker bass player, and Farfisa playing Wade Layhe, Thaddeus Jackson, (the singer with the band) and William "Billy" Lentz on drums? The Frank Ace Combo.....wow!
What about Albert Battle the voice of "Bud Spud & The Sprouts"? Frank, Albert, Jerry, George (Albert's cousin), and James Long was the second garage band of The Continentals....right out of high school. They were on The local TV show "IT'S WALLACE" later on "WALLACE & LADMO"! This had to have been in 196O or 1961.
This was right before he meet "Eddie & Ernie".
What about "The Beautiful People", and don't forget "The Hollywood Factors"....and "The 3rd Funk"....that's a whole nother story....huh, Clint..:-) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Any way, I'm gonna try and get Frank to give us some of those pic's for the web site. If you want to see them, drop us a line!
If you know someone with a pic of Frank Ace or his band member from those days, send it to me,
