Scott's band pic from college

As we continue in our riveting series of my checkered past, we dive into the college years. This is one of the few pics I have of my "band days" in college. Full-on goatee, and yeah, at one point I had long hair. I was playing bass in a band called "Kid Rhitalin." We named it thus because three of the four guys were on or had been prescribed for Ritalin. Hence, the picture above of me being a bit hyper is quite fitting.

The makers of Ritalin sent us a cease-and-desist letter, believe it or not -- after just one show. This is pre-internet days, so we're pretty sure some douchebag from the local drugstore saw a flier, and called the company. I begged the band members to keep the name, so we could get publicity, but I was out-voted -- seems they didn't want to take on Big Pharma. Go figure.

So.....

I'm with you FDO.  You should have kept the name - what great free advertising for the manufacturer.  If that's they way Big Pharm wants to be I would have changed the name to Writ-A-Lynn! That would have been apropos since they sent you a cease-and-desist letter!

Thats not a MULLET? is IT?

BUFF though, no?

On Edited

you didn't by chance...

Happen to have an ’83 GMC Vandura with a shag dashboard and a mural of a barbarian hoisting his broadsword to the sky while a half-nekkid buckskin clad maiden was wrapped around his leg, did you?  Maybe also a dragon in the background, or a dark wizard?

Cause that’s the vibes I’m getting.
