Willie Buck’s auto shop calendar, 1980. If you read the fine print you’ll see his blues band lineup. Bob Corritore would start doing gigs with Willie Buck that year, and must have been the replacement for Dimestore Fred who went off to pursue a career in rockabilly music. By today’s standards these girly calendars are politically incorrect, but in 1980 these types of calendars were common for auto shops. Calendar courtesy of Illinois Slim.
