Lightfoot, the boys in the band and I think that's Chuck the stage manager in Seven Springs, PA - Aug.20, 2005, during sound check. The night was rained out unfortunately. !
second look - I don't think that's Chuck..

He must have just brushed his hair 'up'..he's usually got bangs...and the shorts make him look taller!
lolol
At first look I thought it was him...then I doubted myself..

Gee Jen pretty hard to be 100% certain

cropped and enlarged portion of Claudia's revealing photograph at:-

I have to point out that IMHO the way that figure is just sauntering confidently into the band's stage area suggests he is not some Johnny Come Lately stage hand

I've seen Chuck with his hand on his hip like that..LOL
I can see it's him with the closer look at his face tho..
different/shorter hairdo than I've seen before.. Must be his summer 'do' ..

I've always thought the on-stage attire was pretty darn casual for folks this age and level of accomplishment. But seeing these great candids I'm convinced they must think they're 'dressed up' when they take the stage. Thanks for sharing.

For their defense I really have to say, it was a sweltering day. Close to the end I heard Gordon say: "Let's do one more and than let's vacate..." ( with emphasis on the last word )

And I was roasting too, hiding behind the Porter Pottie's. But hey, I wasn't about to complain [img]tongue.gif[/img]

No defence needed. These are great! You are to be commended for posting by the Porter Port-a-potties to get these shots. I bet you had no clue you would be sharing the pictures with 4000.

No, indeed! Not in my wildest dreams I thought they would show up anywhere in public, lol. Actually I never thought it would be of interest for anybody else but me. Probably I was too wrapped up in my grief since the concert was rained out and I had to wait another 12 month to actually see him live - at the same place but this time with regular pants on... :D

Nobody mentioned the inadvertent, but appropriate caption--"Grey Rocks" Maybe it should be "Gray Power!" given the age of the band

I wasn't referring to the shorts & tank tops. They are appropriate for a soundcheck in the heat, of course. I was just mentioning my surprise at some of their choices for concert attire. But in this day and age of casual everyday and dress-down Friday, etc. I guess it's standard stuff. My issue not theirs, LOL.

Err Umm What I fail to understand is why the aforementioned Claudia was evidently unable to display her pictures herself
and had to resort to bothering our hard working Moderator person.
Ever since Florian heavily revised this forum a while ago there has been a cheaters method for using the UBB "image" code
at the bottom of every composition page (including Private Messages)
and I personally took considerable pains to provide a "quick and dirty" guide as recently as March 22 2006 in my reply to a
simply brilliantly entitled topic
"How to post pictures?"at:-
http://www.corfid.com/ubb/ultimatebb...=003741#000002
that I have just brought back to the top. Now do forgive me for harping on about this subject yet again
I feel compelled to point out that Claudia regisered as long ago as
May 23, 2005 so she must have read my efforts many times since then
In that masterpiece of tuition I said:-

my tutorials are not yet consolidated.
But the quick and dirty answer is:
1. you can only display a picture that is already on the internet ... anywhere....
if necessary on your own web site. but setting up web space is fodder for yet another tutorial!!
2. having found your desired picture you need its web address (the URL)
usually by right clicking on the picture and selecting " properties"
3 to be on the safe side open a new browser window and paste in the URL you intend to use (a precaution to ensure that you
got it right)
4.Now armed with the URL you have the choice of doing it the hard way by hand:-
5.1.simply type [img] then paste in the URL then type [/img]
[or]or[/b]
5.2 look carefully under the text box and find the image link:-

click on "Image"
6.a "user prompt" box pops up

7.with the cursor in the text box where you want the picture to display
8.paste in your picture's URL over where it already says http"//

9 Press OK
10. Press "preview" to ascertain that you wil be achieving your desired effect
11. Press "add reply" or "ad new topic" as applicable
12. wait for the processing to complete
13. check your masterpiece when it appears
14.congratulate yourself
15.shout "eureka"

16 Get in the bath

17.Contemplate your navel (optional)

18. Indulge in some chocolate or whatever turns you on!!
19 Pat yourself on the back
20 grin hugely
21 send me $5.00 (or more!!)
