Al Kline Five and Early Burns Guitar

The Al Kline Five

(Click on the photo to the right for a larger version.)

Alan Klein sent me this picture of him and his band, the Al Kline Five, about 18 months ago. I then added his email and the picture but only of him with the early Burns guitar which he bought in either late December 1958 or early January 1959. Its identical to mine!

When I was going through my old emails I looked at it again and decided to add it to my Guestbook as it’s a great vintage picture with 2 wonderful Hofners and a Framus Star bass, again, identical to mine. And for any drummer reading this…who needs more than a snare and bass drum to play rock ‘n’ roll?!!

Alan’s original email:

Hullo Guy

A photo has turned up of the Al Kline Five featuring the elusive early Burns guitar. Thought you might like to see it.

Best Regards
