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.........
