Jerry did not buy that bear, although he probably would have liked to. He would have had it stuffed and placed in his barber shop...lol

Going to Club 68 were some of the best nights of my life. I loved Buster Brown, Midnite Special, and most of all Fire Dept. Allen Needham is an Awesome guitar player. I only hope heaven is like Club 68!

Fire Dept, Buster Brown, Midnite Special those were the days back in the 80's!! I remember always being near the huge speakers when Buster Brown's bass was kicking, meeting all our buddies there and hanging out. One time we helped walk someone out who was extremely drunk, he looked down and found a $10 bill! So many stories so little time....crazy times!

I remember my dad telling me about Ike and Tina playing there. It was the scene back in the day.
Saw em there many times. On break Tina came and sat at my table a couple times. I keep telling her that she was going to become world famous, but she didn't think so. A very down to earth and sweet lady. Always liked when the Exiles came and played. As far as clubs I like the Horseshoe better back when the original early 60's Monarchs played. The next generation Monarchs are not much.

Charlie Daniels played there once in the mid 70s. In the beginning, it had an elevated dance floor with black lights. In the 60s, beer bottles starting flying around 11:30PM.

Cops patrolling around outside making sure NO ONE left drinking! We were more scared of our parents than the law in those days! The CLUB was the place PERIOD!! I think most of my high school class went there on the weekends and funny thing is, there were not very many fights at all - a few sure - but everyone knew if you started it, you better finish it! I think cops didn't say much because it was easy to know we were all in one place than scattered on every little side road in Lebanon. Parking at Rally's gas station til dawn! OH WHAT FUN!

But people did watch out for those "younger" ones in the Club! You better hope one of the older ones didn't catch you attempting to get behind the wheel. That was a big big NO NO!

I remember Exile when they were one great rock band. Jimmy Stokley and J P Pennington. Then was the good ole days. Took us a little while to get there on the back roads but well worth it.

Back when I went to the Club 68 and Golden Horseshoe (my favorite) drinking and driving was legal. Never had or caused a wreck, never exceeded the speed limit, had cops behind me numerous times and never got caught. I'd rather meet someone at 0.8 than idiots texting or driving with a phone stuck in their ear. haven't had a drink in 25 yrs, never use the cell while driving and sure as hell don't text.

Drinking and driving weren't legal, you could always be arrested for it.........the cops just chose not to because everyone knew everyone and the "he's from a good family" attitude.

Golly, I was kidding about drinking and driving being legal. People got stopped and told to go straight home. Now we have something as bad as DUI and that is cell phones and especially texting. Can'tt tell you how many times I've gone down the freeway to see a phone stuck in an ear and have a driver to sway into my lane. I consider texting more dangerous than DUI, but the police won't do anything about that. The same for people who drive in darkness or rain without headlights on. All of this is awful, but people seem to make excuses. Yes, DUI is terrible, but there are other things almost or just as bad.

Sat on the stage at the 68 all night the night THE KINGSMEN played there in the late 60's....The place was packed. Couldnt hear for two days afterwards. Still have ringing in my ears! Great time!!... Saw Wesley Simpson cold-cock a guy out in front of the Club one night who was smarting off to Halem George. One punch and done. Worst fight I ever saw at the Club was between Johnny Boone and another dude about as bad as Johnny. It was in the front entrance. No western brawl could compete. Those were the days.....

How about Foghat,Tommy James and the Shondells,Spike. Wonderful time to grow up in.I had the law tell me to call it a night and go home many times.Always did.No back talk it was yes sir. Same way with my parents yes sir or no maam. What Happened? Where did we go wrong? Did goverment take away our rights as parents to correct our kids when needed? Have they closed down everything so our kids can't have any fun? Is violence the way they do have fun nowadays. I may be wrong but this day and time is corrupted to the point i consider it evil.Good thing Jesus Christ died for our sins or we would all fall short.We will all stand before the judgement seat so think before you act or say.That why we have 2 ears and one mouth.We should listen to twice as much as we say.
