Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
The Fifth Generation was inducted to the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007, with a reunion show at Arnold’s Park. I just wanted to thank Charlie, Mark and Bernie for including Andrew and I in this great evening. In some news article it was reported that I joined them when I was 15 but that was not the case. We had talked about it but it didn't happen then. Their guitar player back then was Steve Volk from Carroll and I was in a band in Glidden (Iowa). I joined them later in Iowa City. I didn't meet Daryl until we started rehearsing for this show. He was an original member back in the 60's.
Have to include this picture of Steve and Martha Prottsman (front) Zac and Tonia Watne (son-in-law and daughter) grandson Jack and his mom Sarah Watne (daughter) then Andrew (son) and Jamie Sorenson his soon to be wife. In the far back corner you can see Dean and Julie Davis from Fort Dodge, Iowa. They did all the recording and videography for the show. They are also our very good friends and Dean (extraordinary drummer) played on my second cd.
