Sir Charles and the Daze of Olde - 1967 - Skoop - Santa Claus

We all have these daze, sitting on some wonderful 45's that you think everyone would have, with scads of info just waiting to be found. But, alas, sometimes you just can't find the band.

Sir Charles and the Daze of Olde, who are you? I've never heard a whisper of the identity of any of the band.

Maybe listening to the tunes will jog the brain cells.........

Comin' on Home
Baby Come Back

Good jangly tunes, from early 1967. The Skoop label is from Santa Claus, Indiana, so the band may be located somewhere nearby. Any ideas, info, speculation, or jeers is appreciated. Sir Charles has to be out there. Let's find them!

Next Generation - Ft. Wayne 1967

Our Generation, Beat Generation, My G-G-G-Generation baby.......

Well, let's add the Next Generation to the list of guys that went out and took on the rock & roll world, circa 1967.

Mike Gee - lead guitar
Rick Popp - bass
Steve Crooks - lead throat / rhythm guitar
Bob Clausen - Drums

The band were made of students of Bishop Dwenger and Northside High Schools. The "Next Generation" moniker was born after five hours and four pizzas at a local parlor. Rock and soul was the focus, as the band melded the two in a 10 minute version of "Hey Joe", normally a two minute exercise.  Future plans included cutting a record..........that's where I get really excited and must know if it came true.........
