The Shattertones June 1966

March 31st, 2017

Timothy P. Irvin (left, kneeling in front of the guitar) formed The Shattertones in 1960 as a high school freshman. Six years later the band was performing local gigs. That’s Huey Landry, kneeling with the trumpet; Kim Marriner, organist; and John Campbell, standing in the back with his right arm resting on the band’s trailer. The older gentlemen were not band members. Dr. Donald Prince, professor of education at Illinois State University, is holding the trombone. The individual with the guitar is unidentified. Irvin later organized the country band Timothy P. and the Rural Route Three. Who remembers catching a Shattertones or Timothy P. show back in the day?
