For those of you that have read There Was A Time, you'll recognize the name of the Sinclairs. This was the first band for Charlotte, NC legend Pat Walters, who went on to play with the Barons, Paragons, Good Bad & The Ugly, and the Spongetones, among others. Pat talked about the Sinclairs in our book, but no photos of the band had surfaced. Until now.
When I saw this photo online recently, I knew that a true gem had been discovered. The clothes, the gear, Pat (who in the center) looking over at his other guitarist. And yes, the Junior High school girls lined up in back. If you want to know what was going on in 1964, look no further than this photo. Awesome.
