Lovechain - A 1967 newspaper article tells all about "Lovechain" - the "youthful new band" (except they misspelled Bob Boring's name). (contributed by Dave McDowell)

Lovechain - Dave McDowell pulls away from his father's house on Albrook AFB in 1968, heading for a Lovechain "gig", pulling a trailer full of all their signature matching blue-green, tuck & roll Kustom equipment (quite a novelty back then). (contributed by Dave McDowell)

Lovechain - Speaking of all that matching Kustom equipment, here it is onstage March 2, 1968 at the Curundu "Dome", at a BHS "Sadie Hawkins" dance. That's Dave McDowell in the back on guitar, Jim Napier with his cool Gibson double-neck, Sam McGuinness on bass, and Billy Foster on drums. (contributed by Dave McDowell)
