A s early as 1960 U.S. Sen. John Kerry had made his ambition to be President known to his peers. At the same time, he wanted to be in a rock 'n' roll band. He was the tallest guy in the class, so he got to be the bass player. We leave it up to posterity to decide which of his ambitions our new Secretary of State best fulfilled.

Originally recorded in 1960 at St. Paul's School in Concord, NH. Members of the band include Jack Radcliffe on piano, Jon Prouty on guitar, Larry Rand on guitar, Peter Lang on drums, Andy Gagarin on maracas, Lee Scarbrough on sax and Mr. Kerry on bass.
