A Biography of Jim Pinkoski
Me an “Actor”??
The “ACTION 60s” TV Show
Jim Pinkoski’s “Early Days”
(Hey, this is MY website — and I can put anything up here that I want to put up here, RIGHT? )
ABOVE: With long hair and no beard in 1975 — my Mom at my comic shop in 1976 — me in 1981
ABOVE LEFT: I got my 1st drumset when I was 15. ABOVE RIGHT: Here I am jamming with a rather well-known New York cartoonist by the name of Jim Steranko in 1978. Drums were only a “hobby” for me over the years — most of my time was spent drawing! Do I still have my drums? Nope — I got rid of them back in 1993 or so.
Jimi Hendrix !?!
ABOVE: While we are on the subject of “music,” I saw JIMI HENDRIX perform twice! This is a photo I took with my old instamatic camera of Hendrix performing at an outdoor concert in 1970 at the Sacramento Fair Grounds in California.
BELOW: I was at the CREAM concert in San Francisco in 1968 the weekend they recorded the live portion of their “Wheels of Fire” album — and I was very appreciative of Ginger Baker’s amazing drum solo! After all, I WAS a drummer too! ( That’s MY photo on the right . . . )
BELOW: Back in 1968 I took an old army shirt and painted it with bright psychedelic glow-in-the-dark colors, and I wore it to some of these concerts — here it is modeled by one of my old girlfriends. I wish I had a photo of the back of the shirt, but I don’t seem to have one — that shirt looked spectacular under a black light!
