Title: old friends in worcester mass
Post by: princess on April 26, 2006, 07:21:32 AM
Looking for a guy named Gary Sargent with Rebel as his nickname.  This is vickie.  Last talked to him in 1974.  Worked at a place called Peakload which was a employment office that they went to daily to see if they could find work.  He lived in an rooming house up over a place called the greek cafe which was like a coffe shop.. There was a big glass building near there that was a bank i believe.  Everbody knew him.  Everybody called him rebel.  He was like a guardian angel to me.  If anyone has any info on him or the names of the streets where these busineeses are located please tell me..  Thanks a bunch and god bless. He kind of looked like Dog on dog the bounty hunter.

  I grew up in Worcester in the Shrewsbury Street area. Played in a local band called the New Breed. We played the Comic Strip for years in the 60's. I can rememeber all the great times at the Lincoln Square Club. Presently, live and work in Fort Lauderdale. Hello to all.

That would make you Frankie Savastano, right? I still see Matt Gentile often. If I told you he looks EXACTLY the same 40 years later, would you be surprised? Paul Zecco sadly is no longer with us and Lee Vachon pops up rarely. Paul "Fender" Larange is doing very well and until recently was running the music department at Notre Dame Academy.

 Hi Frankie, this is Matt G's son Jeff. I remember meeting you down in Florida many, many years ago. I don't remember it being in Ft. Lauderdale though.
 I just came across this board for the first time this morning. I'll pass the info on to my father, I'm sure he'd love to talk.
 He still got his guitar string package signed by either Jimmy Page, or Jeff Beck. It escapes me right now, but still too cool.
 Yes he's still got his Mosrite Ventures model bass  ;D

Hey Frank...long time...my son just showed me this and it seems pretty good from what I see so far...Be good to talk again about what you've been up to and about the past adventures we've had... :o

Bummer about Zeck...Me and Fender were polbearers at the funeral  :'( We'd been jamming and playing with different people for the last couple of years . Played at Sir Morgans and the Palladium together and it was great to be back on stage together after all those years apart... ;D  Lee's in pretty rough shape... :(...in a hospice for the last few months . Tough gettin old...!  :-[ E-mail me anytime and we can catch up... ;)

Frankie, I bet you don't remember me. I am David Spahr. I sat in front of you in home room at North High. The room at the top of the stairs. You sat in the back seat. George Shattuck sat to my left and Deb Simoncini in front of me. I lived in the north end and really didn't know all that many people there. I was there just that year. Don't remember that much of it really. I was checking out old Worcester rock bands and ran into this by accident. What band did Jere Scola play drums for?

Just joined site and not sure how to use it!  David Spahr, I've been thinking of finding you for a couple of years and even just this week.  I queried Jere Scola and saw your name. Jere Scola sent me a resume in the 90's as I was leaving the executive recruiting industry. I didn't recognize him till years later. Anyway, Jere was a friend when you and I were at Forest Grove.  I don't recall if he even went there but he used to pal around with Schuh and I think Jimmy( no the other )Kelleher, was it Kevin? Jere had a band that year and played at battle of the bands at the memorial auditorium. They did a so-so set and they had one more song and I screamed out "PLAY WIPE-OUT" and they did.  Jere was NOT the drummer, he sang and played guitar.  The drummer was an Italian kid named Paul? Anyway, they brought down the house and won the contest and the drummer won best musician. I have more to tell you but not sure if this will get to you. robbvann@yahoo.com

Hey Rob , the band you're talking about were The Fugitives , me and Jere went to North High together . I played bass , Jere and Lee Vachon played guitars and Paul Zecco played drums . Jere left the band and the rest of us got together with Frank Savastano and formed The New Breed around 1965 I think . Thanks for bringing up some good memories .

if this is the same Rebel i knew he was a guardian angel to a few from down south and came up with his brother alvin ..lived in the cambridge street area for awhile and was a cb'er...went by the name rebel there also and his brother was called nuts n bolts.  Rebel looked tall due to the biker boots and the heels on them and dressed like a biker ..had blond hair and thin...exact opposite of what his brother looked like ...ive no clue what happened to him if this is the same person...i remember helping him to find his wife who pulled a cute one on him and made it looked like something happened and she mysteriously disappeared ...which she didnt ..just wanted it to look that way to drive him crazy.

Jimmy Barbone--from The NEW Breed who then became Alcock..sadly died last year.   He started the thread on the band and he emailed me and he and his wife and I reconnected. He left behind his wife Dottie and two sons.
