After that first photo session, I became the LA Knockers “official” photographer.  That is, when they needed photographs, I would take them in my studio.  By then I had rented a storefront space at 6340 Yucca, close to my apartment on Beachwood Drive.

In March 1977, I took black and white head-shots of the 3 dancers: Jennifer, Marilyn and Yana.  In November 1977, Jennifer needed a group shot with their guitar players, Arnold Schoonover and Phillip Truescroff, and the new dancers: Becky Jordan and Kimberlee Carlson.  Here’s a color slide from that session, which was mostly in B&W.

  3. Its nice to see something out there that shows my uncle, Arnold Schoonover. He passed away a little over a year ago primarily unnoticed. He had a big heart and all he wanted was to let his music be heard. I for one miss him. And all the girls and the band were an inspiration in my life though I was only privilege in the last years of the everlasting movement of the L.A. Knockers. Long live you!
    Frank.

    • Hi Frankie… Thanks for letting us know of Arnold’s passing. I’m sorry to hear. Just yesterday I wondered how he was doing. Life takes us here and there so quickly and then we’re gone. Your uncle was a special guy, a wonderful friend, fine musician and singer and I for one cherished his input into our movement as you so gracefully call it. It was a movement. God Bless!
