    Haven't met many jazz musicians, have you?

    TBH though, studio pix like this are something you'd expect to see about 5 minutes before the band broke up.
    And a couple days before band members start showing up in the morgue or in jail.
    And normally the photographer would get punched in the face and fired.

    WTF, Hubbard approved this for distribution, even promotional media.
    For a fucking album cover?

    I'm speechless.

    (otoh, its a candid shot of what many/most jazz jerks look like at various low points in their careers. You don't often see them like this, because they don't want you to see them like this, because they don't want you to know that their lives really are shit, cuz that's a downer. Looks like [STRIKE]the Apollo Stars and[/STRIKE] their Supreme Roolah were past the point of caring.)

    Funny this, I played some of this album to the g/f last night, and she asked "what on earth is this crap".

    I explained it was Hubbard.

    No further discussion was required.

    Title track sounds like a combo of cheesy 60s action-movie chase scene music and... something else. Something not good.
  8. Re: The Apollo Stars - "Power Of Source" 1974 (audio)

    I swear that pic of Hubbard on the cover looks shooped.

    Either that, or he's doing a Stephen Hawking impression.

    I can't stop laughing when I hear their rendition of Summertime. It has to be the worst version of the song I have ever heard, which is quite an accolade as Summertime is famous for being butchered by terrible musicians many times over.
  10. Re: The Apollo Stars - "Power Of Source" 1974 (audio)

    Indeed, as I mentioned last time this album was posted; this truly is one of the worst produced and engineered "commercial" records I've ever had the misfortune to hear.

    I have been informed that Annie Broeker is sitting on the left, and Tony Strawn is the black guy with the hat. Tony was jailed for molesting a child in Florida.

    Any idea who the crazy cross-eyed scientist doofus is between Annie and Hubbub?

    When it came out a lot of public Scientologists hated it. One hardcore staff member said, "See, it's great it's bringing the 1.1 people uptone into anger."

    I once officiated a funeral in which a friend of the family was invited sing the deceased's favorite song - Summertime. She (the singer, not the deceased) was a bit drunk (it was a weird funeral) and not a good singer.... not even karaoke good, and her slaughter of the song was better than this.

    Annie Broeker is still a slave at the Int Base.
    Tony Strawn is in prison for molesting TWO pre-pubescent girls.
    Russ Meadows left the cult in 1983.
    Neil Sarfati left the cult in 1978 and runs a large food distribution company.
    Bill Potter died from AIDS in the late 1980's.
    Kip Hansen left the cult in 1983.
    Homer Schomer left the cult in 1982 and sued them.
    Dan Auerbach left the cult in 1982.
    Wayne Marple left the cult in 1982.

    This just from knowledge. No dox.

    Old thread, but perhaps someone can put "Power of Source" on the Wikipedia and add the info from this thread link from Afaceinthecrowd? It's lulzy as hell, and there are many more detailed posts in here:

    There's more about The Apollo Stars in this article:

    Photos shot by L. Ron Hubbard in 1975 capture how the founder wanted Scientology marketed

    By Tony Ortega, June 13, 2017

    Quote:

    Over at Facebook in a private group, former Scientologist Neil Sarfati posted some very fun images from a flyer dated 1975 which feature him in a number of images. What we especially like about them is that they were photos shot by L. Ron Hubbard himself, and give us a good idea of how Hubbard wanted to market Scientology.

    Neil was in Scientology from 1968 to 1976, and during that time he had some pretty amazing experiences with Hubbard as a member of the Apollo Stars, a jazz ensemble that recorded a single album with Hubbard’s participation. Last year, Neil talked about the Apollo Stars experience for a very good piece about the band and its brief heyday.

    <snipped>

    Neil tells us that there were definite benefits to being selected to play for the Apollo Stars, which started around 1971. “For almost two years we would spend a couple of hours with Hubbard almost every day. He was relaxed with us. We were the flavor of the week. He would tell us all sorts of stories, which we of course ate up. He would tell us this and that is from the Whole Track,” Neil says, referring to Hubbard’s claim that he had explored his “Whole Track” of existence back quadrillions of years.

    “When we added the Apollo Stars dancers Hubbard showed the head choreographer a step that he got from his space opera days. Everyone wanted to be a dancer as a way to get out of the RPF,” Neil says, in a reference to the Rehabilitation Project Force, the Sea Org’s prison detail. “Just about everyone you can imagine from from the executive strata came to us to be a dancer. Quentin Hubbard really want to be dancer, but Daddy said no. We had Greg Wilhere and his wife. I’m sorry I cant remember the others but there were dozens. We at that time had the clout to get just about anyone we wanted to. It was insane.

    “Hubbard always dressed to the hilt. Ascots, capes, etc. Everyone on the ship loved us as we kept Hubbard away from them. We would practice many hours of the day, which the crew hated as we kept them up. We practiced right above the men’s and women’s dorms,” he says.
