Re: South seas music

Yep, had an Indian and wore a black leather jacket with a skull painted on the back. Did that for about a year, then my dad insisted that I join the US Navy. While I was deployed in the Med, dad sold the bike and the jacket. When I got home, he gave me the money and said "Now go buy yourself a car." The Marlin Brando look went away real fast. However, my wife said that back then I looked more like James Dean, and she has a photo in her wallet to prove it. One day, I'll scan the photo and post it. I was a real skinny kid back then, 20 years old, 6 feet tall and tipped the scales at 145-pounds.

All the best,

Gary

Re: South seas music

Speaking of music not native to the islands it's connected to, I've noticed that virtually every video of sailing in the Bahamas has steel drum/Caribbean/Jamaica-style music in the background, but it turns out that's not Bahamian at all; their music is quite different.

Re: South seas music

The Steel Drum, or "Pan", is a unique instrument, and one of the most recently invented! It is a skillfully hammered 55-gallon oil barrel which has been carefully tuned by hand to produce perfect musical tones. The drums were developed on the Caribbean island of Trinidad during the early years of the 20th century.
