Always thought the name Duke Tumatoe and the All Star Frogs was kinda cool in a weird way.

Had a buddy from high school who's dad played in a 5 piece dance band and they were all bald so they thought the 5 Skins would be a good name - until 1 of them didn't show up ........... :mrgreen:

Saw this on a Marquee on King yesterday near MEC "Scully and the Crossbones", sounds like a fun band.

Tommy Chong was in a band in the early sixties called "Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers" however Tommy had another name in mind for the band that cannot be mentioned here (for obvious reasons if you know what that name was)... :lol:
