The guy in the picture with Wanda Jackson is Roy Clark. This photo was taken in November of 1960 at the Prom Ballroom, St. Paul, Minnesota. The reason this photo is posted is because it has special meaning to web site author Bob Timmers. You see, when Roy left Wanda to go on his own, the lead guitarist, Jerry Starr, from Bob's band (Jerry Williams & The Rockets) was tapped to replace Roy. That meant Bob got to move up from bass to lead guitar, replacing Jerry Starr within his group and promoting the style of Johnny Meeks. Ya dig? Photo courtsey of DiAnne Kaslow.
