Old Hudson Valley Bands

A Look Back At The Hudson Valley Music Scene



The Lost Souls
THE LOST SOULS (1965) were (left to right) lead guitarist John Cannon (Canning), bassist Thom Peters (Caccetta), guitarist Michael Marino and drummer Bob Hefernan, who replaced original drummer Mike Nelson. They recorded for Bang Records. We spoke via e-mail recently with John Canning in Malibu, California, about the group, and he commented that "we were a @$#%^&* great cover band and no one ... absolutely no one, even the Beatles, could play Beatles better than us." Prior to The Lost Souls, Michael, Thom and Mike Nelson played in The Umans, and John played in The Concepts.
