Default 19 years ago Destiny tour pix

All -

Here are some links to photos of the 1988 Destiny tour at Lamour in Brooklyn, NY. These photos are 19 years old and were taken by me with a 110 pocket camera that I snuck into the show. Front row so the pictures are all framed nicely. Obviously I know who Biff is, but I have no idea who the other band members are. Faces change over the years, and I do not recognize any of the guitarists from the current band in these pictures. Please reply with comments and id's. I remember this to be a great show.

Copy/paste these links one at a time into your browser:

Hi Wiggie

Some cool photos there.

As for the band members, the one in the first photo is Paul Quinn (during his wig wearing days ), who is still playing with the band.
The other guitarist is Graham Oliver who left several years ago, and is now in 'OD Saxon' along with Steve Dawson.
I think the bass player is Paul Johnson, but I'm not 100% sure on that. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Hope that helps,and thanks once again for the great photos.

Papadoc.

good pix, the jeans and t-shirt look suits saxon far better than the spandex look of the mid 80's. has anyone heard/know anything what paul johnson has done since leaving saxon? wasn't paul's wig used as the werewolf in "an american werewolf in london"
