Bill Eucker & Pink Dominos

Came across some cool information about a song that the famous Thousand Oaks guitar teacher Bill Eucker was credited for writing in the early 1960's called Pink Dominoes. The web site I read also spoke about a group called The Crescents featuring a lady guitarist named Chiyo from Oxnard. You can read all about it at

He was my teacher in T.O. that taught me how to listen as much as play.

I was in several bands in Oxnard and Venture in the 60's as was my brother Steve who still play around there. I met Bill when I was doing some recording in Burbank and he produced one of the bands my brother was in. Can't remember the name. Bill was a friend of Don Gay's who was a good player in the area..crap I could talk for hours on this subject. Let me say this though. I was with my brother once when he and Buddy Smith (great blues player) were cutting something in LA and we had to wait for Bobby Gentry to finish recording Ode to Billy Joe before we could get the studio. Now hey, that was like 1965 and if you said hey you dreamed that, I would not argue with you too much, but it is in the brain somewhere... great times.. Bill played on Hallabaloo or Shindig one of those shows as I recall.
