    I don't know if they're still playing anywhere, but there used to be a three- piece band named Silverado around here that played all the local bars (and some not so local). Brothers on guitar and bass, and the drummer was a guy they'd been friends with since childhood. One of the best bands around at the time. You remind me of them a lot in this pic- I think you'd have fit right in with those guys!

    Thanks. That Stetson Fedora belonged to my Grandfather. I inherited it as a teenager, and I’ve worn it off and on my whole life. It’s too worn out to wear now, and I just put it on to snap a pic. The leather sweatband has rotted out and the lining is shot. Still, it’s not badly stained and has no holes. I really want to get it cleaned and restored, but there’s no place locally to have it done. There’s shops online, but I havnt taken the initiative to ship it off to somewhere like a Boston or NYC.

    I don't blame you there! I'd be terrified to send off anything I inherited.
