THE CHRYSLERS MOVEMENT More of the Beginning: Memories
from the 'Wolf' ...
Click any photo to see it enlarged view.
Recently, (July of 2004) I had the pleasure of spending an evening with
Wendell (AKA The Wolf or AMP). Wendell, who was in Baltimore for 2 weeks,
resides in Oklahoma.
The very popular Wendell, got away from his busy schedule to help arrange a gathering of some
of us including Andre, myself (Moe) and some others from the 1960's.
He provided the photo to the left. It was the only picture that he could
locate of our musical experiences from 1964 through early 1970's. Left Rear-
Amp/Wolf/Wendell, Center Rear- Randy/Hippie, Right Front Standing- Larry/Moe,
Center-Front-Seated, "cool as a Popsicle", Bert/Rabbit.
I am uncertain as to what events perpetuated the picture or where it was taken.
It may be the historically famous Ambassador Theater in Gwynn Oaks, of
Baltimore. Amp did not elaborate either. Embarrassing to me, that neither of us knew what for
or why the photo but- we both remember the posing! They say, "Your mind is
the 1st thing to go..."! Maybe they are right!
My 'guess-timate' is because there are only 4 of us and of this particular
clothing. It is between 1965-1968. It is either before we added the
incomparable Andre Towles to the Chryslers or it was soon after Andre left entertainment
for his Vietnam War Time military duty. (Presently, I'm searching hard for a
picture with Andre in it!) If the latter is true then, we were
awaiting the arrival of Lamont Davis.
Lamont would be the 1st of many 'new generation' Chryslers. Lamont
is the lead vocalist on BECAUSE I LOVE YOU by The Chryslers and Monarchs
Band (Jody Enterprises [JE}) released circa 1968. The fllip side of
that is, "I'm not gonna loose you". (Click

I promised Amp, that I would get this picture up onto my site. I reiterate
my request from other pages on this site, if anyone may provide additional photos,
biographic information or contact information about The Chryslers, the Monarchs, The
Mascalaros or any of the photos contained on this site, please contact me by any of the
means listed in the page footer.
