Used to just follow them around in my younger days. they had a cool song i think they wrote .....something about a telephone?? i know the lead singer was Scotty mcDonald/macdonald and Paul Zupan was also in it. Any info would be appreciated.

The original Aces and Eights was: Kurt Pitman - Drums, Jerry Pitman - Rhythm guitar, Oscar Alden - Lead guitar and back up vocals, Shari Alden - Back up vocals and bass guitar, Rob Ginn - Bass guitar and Bob somebody - lead vocals. Bob left, Scott came in. Jerry took over lights and sound. (I thing Jeff Lamb was doing that at first, can't remember) Jeff Lamb became Rhythm guitar. Kurt Pittman left and took the name Aces and Eights with him. So became, Shot in the Dark. Paul Pinegar became Drummer. Shari left. That's all I remember.

My dad (Curt Pitman) was the original drummer of Aces and Eights. He would talk about the band forever. He loved those days. Since he passed in 2010 I have been looking to reclaim some of what he has lost in the past. I would remember listening to A&8's over and over again with my brother when we were kids. My uncle (Jerry Pitman) still lives around there. I can remember them rehearsing in my parents basement when I was little...
