I was looking through my stuff and came across this pic I picked off the internet somewhere.

It's labeled "young Berry", but somehow doesn't look old enough to be Raymond Berry Oakley. What do you think ?
BTW, look at the size of those hands !

I received this email from DC about this pic:
quote:
hey steve, the post of the picture on the the bro's website is jerry kokas. jerry was the bassist in the vibratones with berry as was ron sadus on drums. that was bob guziejka's band. pronounced (ga-j-ka) i saw your tribute on youtube.

the singer in front of the mike is bob guziejka, he is also a guitarist and taught berry your basic blues progressios. that first photo on your tribute is my photo taken in 1963. i sent a copy to pam r and she posted it 3 or 4 years ago.........jerry kokas played in one of my bands after i learned how to play the drums. he was a monster bass player. he played jazz before he played rock or blues. he could play stuff like jaco early on. berry and jerry played together for 4 years...dc

me:
Doug,
Thanks for your information.
A couple of more questions come up.
One person pointed out the grey framed object in the back round of the picture I posted and said it looked like a more modern TV set. Do you know what it might be ?
Also, if Jerry Kokas was playing bass in the Vibratones, what was Berry playing ? It would be interesting to know if he was playing guitar at that point.

steve , that object iin the background is a tv set. that picture of jerry k was taken in 2005, a year before he passed away. if you look closely to the old vibratones pic you can see berry with a stratocaster headstock (he played guitar before he played bass). look a little closer and you'll see half of a fender bass. dc
