Ha! I just noticed the picture you posted, Steve! That picture was taken in '66 or '67. Zappa on top; L to R: Don Preston, Roy Estrada; then Bunk Gardner, Ray Collins, Jimmy Carl Black; then Billy Mundi. Notice that this particular print hadn't been cropped to hide the background paper roll.
Billy Mundi left, then I joined to replace him in early 1968. The band immediately became better...
Thanks Doc. Lol I don't know if that is the best way to pose for a picture, but it don't bother me if it didn't bother them. I wish you would tell more stories about those days or write a book. I know it's a very daunting task.
