Sons of Thunder at Home and on the Road
1969-70 (below)
to 1972-74

Here's a batch of informal photos of Sons of Thunder -- we have a few from 1969-70, and a lot from the full-time years, 1972-74. Some are from the road, some before or after concerts, and some from the home at 9400 Wisconsin Avenue which SOT used when full time. Some are whimsical, some serious (not too many). Some certain members will ask us to delete (sorry, the webmaster's on vacation).
Though performing always brings certain pressures, and traveling was sometimes stressful, Sons of Thunder had enormous fun together, as these photos clearly show, and the full-time years were in some ways like an extended vacation. We cherish the memories of that time, and hope you enjoy these candids.
