    Hey, I saw the group in person many years ago, but not with the General. Thanks for bringing back some found memories.

    Before I discovered full fledged Rock n Roll I listened to a truckload of the Ventures. Fantastic tuneage!!! PIPELINE was near the coolest. I was 12 years old in 1964.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    That was great! I remember "Walk Don't Run" very well! Those really were the Good ole Days of rock music.

    Notice that the General never loses his military bearing while playing.

    Thought this was very nice. Ventures were my favorites in the late 60's. Ray Armstrong (my dad) thought I was off my rocker for having Gene Welp (Washington Auto Trim) to install a fancy and expensive stereo system in my new '68 Charger..........................
