  1. You’ve got the two first names right on the top photo. Don’t know Buddy Knox so can’t comment on that one but from left it’s Dion Dimucci with Bobby Vee standing in the middle.

  2. Great photos – I had the immense pleasure of seeing the Band more times than I have digits, have known on first name basis Hawk for years, and the most enduring memory is my Father, a jazz/crooner fan telling me how he and my mother saw Ronnie and the Hawks at the Brass Rail playing for a Christmas Party they attended, and although my dad said they weren’t his style, he warmed to the music in his later years. I had the chance to introduce my own sons to the Band and they visited them on the tour bus. They are lifelong fans as well
