Happiest of Birthdays to Big Brother and the Holding Company's, Dave Getz! 🎈 While teaching art in San Francisco, Dave came across a poster for BBHC, which was looking for a drummer.

What do the two things have to do with each other…? It was great!” Pictured: Dave, Janis, and Peter Albin (back) rehearsing in San Francisco, courtesy of Dave Getz. Photo by Bob Siedmann.
